Chilly Milan…

5 Feb

We spent a brief morning in extremely cold nMilano…I can’t say I was sad to hop on train this afternoon. With only a few hours to entertain ourselves, we decided to head to the Duomo Cathedral area for a little sightseeing. The church is pretty spectacular, the ravenous pigeons are not (they wouldn’t leave AK alone). Milan is a fairly modern city so there wasn’t a lot to look at in the area, instead we opted for an espresso and a short jaunt before heading back to the central station. AK and I did stumbled upon a few luxe stores…only recently have Europeans jumped on the cupcake wagon, the Louis Vuitton store was a perfect example of their latest trend. Nothing like a 730 euro ‘cherry’ handbag on top! This afternoon included a quick train ride to Florence and, of course, pizza and pasta for dinner. More chilly exploring for tomorrow…
