Italy Day 3 & 4: Scenes from Milano

Metro San Babila

Il Duomo

Galleria Vittorio Emmanuelle II

Castello Sforzesco

Some pictures from the last two days spent in Milano, Italia. From the top the Metro Station at San Babila, in northeast Milan, on the way back from dinner on Thursday January 3. Next is Il Duomo, the beautiful cathedral at night a few blocks from our hotel Friday January 4. Adjacent to Piazza Duomo (the square in front of The Duomo) is a fabulous indoor mall called Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II that opened in 1867 and is the location of the very first Prada store at it's center. Last is Castello Sforzesco a huge castle first constructed in the 14th century and restored in the 15th. It contains a huge number of museums brimming with ancient paintings, sculptures and historical artifacts.
Day 5 January 5th is a travel day, from Milano to Turino by train.
