October 8-9 – Ask people what they think of when you say “Italy”, and Milan will be a fair bit down the list for most. We booked these couple of days here on speculation since we were so close, had never been to Italy before, and I thought I would be getting to see either AC Milan or Inter Milan play at San Siro. The soccer schedule didn’t work out for me, but the time we spent around the Duomo more than made up for missing out on soccer. More on our two days in Milan in a later post – for now, here’s a photo blog of the beautiful Duomo in Milan.
