Last summer, my husband and I took a trip to Italy. Milan was our last stop, and we weren't there for very long. We had one evening and one full day, and then our flight left the following day to come back home. We walked 16 miles in our day in Milan, trying to see as much as we could. We also stopped for gelato three times. Gelato has to be one of the best parts of Italy!
We started by touring La Scala Opera House, one of the most famous opera houses in the world.
Then we visited the Milan Cathedral, the largest church in Italy. You could even go up on the roof, where - believe it or not - they showed movies on Friday nights during the summer.
Next was the Sforza Castle. The white things on either side are exhibition areas for the upcoming Expo 2015, which Milan is hosting.
Then we spent a lot of time just wandering around the city. We happened across this church, the Santa Maria della Grazie, where da Vinci's Last Supper is. Unfortunately, the tickets were all sold out for the day. So we just kept wandering and ate some more gelato!

My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
