Piazza del Duomo de Milano

Milan has some amazing works of art and architecture.
Here is a sampling, including all the equines I could find and photograph!

The Last Supper

Visits to the Last Supper are always sold out in advance, but we found a tour ahead of time that included tickets to see it. Worth it. They do a nice job of maintaining a reverent atmosphere inside the hall, as well as displays in other rooms showing some of the restoration work, history, and symbolism.
