A Day In Milan

Milan is a beautiful modern city that I was absolutely enamored to visit. 

My favorite thing in Milan was the beautiful cathedral. The Duomo of Milan is the fifth largest cathedral in the world. It is an amazingly beautiful and absolutely stunning and unique.

Other things to see and do in Milan:

Finding ruins in the middle of the city were a fun surprise. The Colonne di San Lorenzo are 16 columns that are the remains of the Roman ruins that date back to the 2nd century. These are in front of the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio which is the oldest catholic church in Milan. 
After the cathedral, the reason people go to Milan is for the shopping. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is amazing even if you can't afford the Italian designers. But if you can, do it and I am jealous.
Castello Sforzesco was built by the Duke of Milan. Now within there, there are museums and art collections.. Also located near the castle is the beautiful Sempione Park which is worth a wander through or a romantic picnic.
We also visited the business district which had the famous middle finger statue. I wonder whether this is truly temporary.
I did go inside the La Scala Opera house to look, but did not see a show there.

I did skip Santa Maria delle Grazie (where you find the Last Supper), but I am sure that would have been lovely.

This was more of a photo dump, but people always ask me where I stay and where I ate, so I will go through the list real quick. We stayed here. I wanted to explore and relax on the rooftop terrace which looked amazing from the pictures. Of course it was closed for some private event. Figures...but the location was nice. As for food, my favorite restaurant was Piz for lunch. The restaurant was crowded, but it was because the food and drink were truly yummy. Close to our hotel for dinner we went to Salsamenteria De Parma.


Thanks for a good time Milan!
What is your favorite part of Milan?
