This morning Duke and I spent more than four hours getting our covid tests so that they will let us back into the U.S. We spent an hour walking to the train station, we spent an hour waiting in line for our tests, we sent an hour waiting for results and we spent an hour walking back to our room. What a zoo! But we are cleared to travel.
This afternoon we did The Rick Steves walking tour of the Duomo neighborhood of Milan. We went into the massive Duomo.
We went down into the basement under the church and saw the archaeological remains of earlier churches.
We took the elevator and then climbed a bunch of steps to get to the roof of the Duomo. Getting an up close look at the spires and getting to see the view of Milan was very cool.
We walked through the Galleria Victor Emanuele II. And we saw the La Scala opera house.
For dinner we ate at Spazio, a Michelin listed restaurant on the fourth floor of the Galleria Victor Emanuel II, overlooking the Piazza del Duomo. It was an absolutely perfect last supper in Europe. Tomorrow we fly home.
