Cornello dei Tasso to Milan

Our trip is almost over. Today we drove to Milan and returned our rental car. It is good we were doing this on a Sunday for a couple of reasons. One, although there was a lot of traffic, it was undoubtedly less than it would have been on a week day. Driving into a big city is always stressful, so it was a huge relief to get the car where it needed to be. The second advantage of arriving on a Sunday is that there was not a big toll for driving in the central city like there would have been on a weekday.

It is quite a relief to have completed 5 car rentals, driving and navigating in four different countries and maneuvering the many narrow roads and tight spaces with no mishaps!

We walked to our hotel but when we rang the buzzer no one answered. We assumed that it was because it was only 1:15 and checking time was 2:00. We shared a pizza at a nearby restaurant while we waited. Finally at 2:00 we figured out that we needed to call a number to be let in. After a few more minutes a guy arrived and we had a room.

For dinner we ate in a very nice restaurant, La Locanda del Gatos Rossi, located in the Galleria Victor Emmanuel II, one of the world’s first shopping malls.
