While in Venice We made a quick trip to Milan, about two hours away by train. It’s a very interesting city.

The Milan train station is what is called Fascist architecture done during the time of Mussolini. It was enormous with square shapes and sharp angles everywhere.

We took the metro from the train station to our hotel and this is what we saw when we came out of the station, the Duomo.

Next to the Duomo is this very gorgeous shopping mall, the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II, full of mostly high end shops.

One of the symbols of Italy on the floor there. I thought this was the most beautiful.

We got this shot from up above at a cafe called the Marchesi.

They were selling desserts for Valentine Day.

We had the very rich hot chocolate with whipped cream.

  1. Travelers who ignore Milan miss a truly great city. There also are wonderful specialty-foods emporiums – similar to those in Paris – and their windows are works of art. One of my favorite travel experiences was walking on the rooftop of the duomo; a bit scary but fun. When you were in the mall did you twirl around on the mosaic of the bull for good luck?
