Milan, Italy

Our next stop was Milan, Italy! We had another rainy day so we took an afternoon train to Milan and then got on the Metro to the Duomo stop where our hotel was located. We hoofed it in the rain over to our hotel and then dried off our clothes for a bit. We then went out to dinner at Ciao, a fast food pasta place, located in the Galleria that was pretty good! The rain let up for a bit so we walked around the city some and got a few night pictures of the Duomo. Of course, we had some Gelato while walking around!

The next morning, we had a tour pre-booked to see the main sites by bus. We are so glad we did this due to the rain! We had a witty and thorough tour guide named Esther who explained a lot of facts and history that we would not have heard on our own. We went to see the medieval Sfortza Castle, The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, the Scala Opera House, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and the Gothic Duomo cathedral. We really enjoyed it! This completed our visit to Milan after a yummy lunch at Pastarito's! On to the next destination!
