Off to Italy in... 2 More Days!

Some time earlier this year, in February, I wrote a post on Why I Love Italy. I will be leaving for Italy in 48 hours (!!) and revisiting that post makes me happy. For this trip, Milan is where I will be landing.

Milan: I've already bought the ticket (€8 without guide) to the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie to view the Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper (Cenacolo Vinciano). Another highlight for Milan is the Duomo; I definitely want to climb the stairs to the terraces (€7 on foot—my option, €12 by lift). I haven't heard from its Chapter Library about my intended visit, so I suppose that is not going to happen. I've also studied all the Metropolitana linea (M1, M2, M3, M5) and would love to try to take as many rides as possible. To do this without breaking the bank (each ride is €1.50 valid for 90 minutes across networks), I intend to buy the Milano Card which will allow me to take the Metros, buses and trams for free for up to three days!
