Italy Milan

With the end of our trip approaching before we're due in Switzerland, we spend a afternoon in Milan.
Our half-day tour of Milan includes a walking tour in this stylish Italian city. Milan is the fashion world's design capital, I enjoy all the window shopping in the glamorous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. We are taken to tour the breathtaking Duomo, The majestic Dome construction Santa Maria Nascente in white marble of about 157 m length, 93 m wide and 108 metres height is the third largest Catholic Church in the world. On the left side of the cathedral's back part there are lifts and stairs to the terraces of the roof. From the roof of the Cathedral Duomo, we have a breathtaking view over Milan, and the the symbol of Milan-the Golden Madonnina, a copper plate statue. Haha, I use the word breathtaking, because I almost freeze on the roof, it is sooooooooooooooo cold.
That is all for my memory of Milan.
I am unable to see one of the most famous artworks in the world, da Vinci's 'Last Supper'.
Looking forward to heading to Switzerland.
