Milan Strikes again!

Day 2 veterans

overcast

Our second day in Milan went a lot smoother than the first, we only got lost half as much and we finally taught Tony how to enter his subway pass into the machine :) We started out with a wonderful breakfast at the hotel and then traveled back to Duomo to tour the cathedral. It was sooooo amazing, the sculptures and art work were then craziest things I have ever seen. It took 400+ years to build this monster and it was the coolest thing I have ever set my eyes on. Later that afternoon, we toured another church that was home to the painting of the Last Supper. Divincci is a pimp, and the painting takes your breathe away. I tried to steal a pic with my camera but the security guard was all over me. We also toured the Opera house museum which is home to most prestigious Opera house in the World (opened 1778). I had chills going into one of the private boxes to view the theater. We once again crushed some italian cuisine and are coming to realize how expansive italian food is. Thankfully we will be in Tuscany soon where we will be able to cook our own meals, but first is a stop in Venice where we head tomorrow morning. Before dinner we slipped in a trip to the Monestary where there was blocks and blocks of giant scultures and tombs. Unfortunately we only had about 15 minutes to check it out before they closed. We could of literally spent half the day there marveling at its beauty. Posted some pics of Day 2, even though no photograph could ever do justice to what we have seen.
