A day trip to Milan. Sushi for lunch, a stop in the duomo, a long walk around centro, then back on the train home. . .
The Duomo. . . Gothic architecture is my absolute favorite. It is too much for some people but I love how ornate and detailed it is. You could stare at this for an hour and never see all the details. The Milan cathedral took 5 centuries to complete and is the largest gothic cathedral in the world.
One of the giant marble column inside. I can only imagine the work that went into these
The famous shopping street of Milan. This is outside but the street is covered in glass with a mosiac floor. It is anchored by Prada and Louis Vuitton and lined with restaurants and cafes filled with well-dressed Milanese. I could have spent three days here but my children had other ideas.
Milano Centrale. The most gorgeous train station I've ever seen.
I am a thirty-something American living in Italy with my husband and young children. I absolutely love life here and am constantly inspired by the beauty, the architecture, the fashion, and the food I experience each day. In Un Altro Cappuccino, I hope to share a bit of the fabulous Italy style and culture with you.
