Milan in a day

By 8 am we were on the road – not so far this morning to start off with – Salvo dropped us off at the Como north train station to take us into Milan quickly and succinctly. We had an appointment at 10 am and met our guide Andrea to visit Leonardo Da Vincis incredible fresco of the Last Supper. This is a fabulous visit and she helped everyone understand the history and trauma the fresco has gone through in its long life time.nShe lead us onto another new and very lovely find – the church of San Maurizio and the ex convent Monastero Maggiore. The frescoes here were outstanding and rarely visited by tourists.
After my favorite mozzarella lunch at Obiko, high up on the top floor of the Rinacento department store over looking the fairy style roof top of the Duomo. Everyone had a couple of hours to shop and take some personal time to appreciate the centre of Milan, visit the Duomo or the fashion streets .
Visiting a large city like this in a day is never easy – my group were terrific and I’m glad they could experience a little of Milan – spot the odd gorgeous model walking by and see some very smartly dressed business people in amongst beautiful architecture and underneath the huge white intricate marble facade of the Duomo.
