We took a full day tour of Milan with a guide named Donnatella because we only had one day to see it all. We were out a good 12 hours and our feet were killing us right after.
Here’s what we did and saw:
Rode an old trolley car
and his beautiful Square and buildings which is now a shopping mall.
Then there is a cool Unicorn on the floor of Leonardo’s building. Take three turns on the shoe of the unicorn with the heel of your shoe for good luck.
The incredible Duomo
By the way, we learned of a rich family named the Baromeos who helped finance this church. Thought you’d like that one Maria since that is your last name! Decendent perhaps?
Leonardos and Sartinis Last Supper (I would have loved to talk more about it, but I’m soooo tired, I can’t stay up any longer!) Sorry.
Beautiful Medieval Churches with gorgeous frescos (paintings on plaster).
Contemporary Art shops with pics of the Queen with a nose ring and Van Gogh doing a selfie.
The Giant Finger, strategically placed in front of the Italian Stock exchange, but is meant to signify “Love”.
Back at the apartment we had an appetizer (bread, cheese, salamis) with our host. One minute he was fine and talking to us the next he was disappearing and making himself a steak. I think he was manic depressive. He was getting over a two year relationship with a girlfriend.
Bumpy plane ride to Frankfurt…Mary had a German beer on the plane. It was HUGE. I had a red wine. We aren’t sitting together unfortunately. My ears need to pop. Ouch!
Going to get our car soon!
