You stand before the Duomo, stunned by its white, almost translucent beauty; then you go in and find it is even more beautiful inside. Grand, solemn, vast. Delicate, airy, graceful. Those were the adjectives that Mark Twain used to describe this impressive Gothic cathedral. And you will find he was right.
But then, Milan is a city of fascination. You will discover the Sforza Castle, once home to the city’s most powerful families and now the seat of five museums. You will set foot in La Scala, the opera house that saw Verdi and Puccini’s debuts.
And you will eventually find yourself face to face with nothing less than Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper.
