Road Trip – Milan
The first stop on our Northern Italy Road Trip was Milan. As usual, we did little to no planning in advance. I think I was probably calling hotels from the guide book while we drove.
Then, on a recommendation, we checked out Luini Panzerotti. Luini Panzerotti is a standing room only shop that sells small calzone-like sandwiches – and they’re ridiculous. We waited in the long line – which turned out to move very efficiently. (Oh, how far we were from Rome …) And then we ate the sandwiches in the view of the Milan Cathedral.
Milan is the fashion capital of the world, one cannot visit without visiting the fashion. And while there was no danger of actually purchasing anything in the stores … it was fun to have John along, ’cause he wasn’t afraid to march right in to any fancy schmancy store.
Milan was so different from Rome – well organized, lively and young. It was a fun little excursion – and we were especially grateful that the awning that fell down on top of us as we walked along the river… missed John’s head. :)
