Italy: Lake Como and Milan (Day 2)

Day 2 

Lake Como

I decided to venture Lake Como alone while the rest of the girls went to Venice. I had been to Venice on my first trip to Italy last september. I love Venice but I only want to go back there again with my boy. It is easy to travel from Milan to Lake Como with the cheap train ticket and approximately one hour traveling time.

Lake Como

I did not do much research prior to this trip and I really have no ideas how to navigate my way. The locals can only speak a little english and they are not helpful at all.

I have a very strong desire to explore Lake Como but my spirits were dampened by the heavy rain.

Found shelter at the restaurant and I ordered seafood spaghetti but seafood pizza was served instead. Sad! It was still raining heavily after an hour so I decided to head back to Milan.

One of the must-do’s in Milan is to visit the Duomo! I have heard many said that Duomo di Milano is arguably one of the most beautiful church in the world and it is true!

I like this snapshot of father and daughter lighting the candle. 🙂

I must say Duomo di Milano is really huge and impressive!

Milan is the heaven for branded goods lover and you can go to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, right next to the Duomo for shopping!

And of cos, I succumbed to the temptations again in Milan….

    It looks so beautiful. But what a shame that the locals weren’t helpful.
