We had a brilliant short break in Milan during December 2017 – just before our New Year’s trip to Paris. Let’s share some impressions of Milan in winter!

Let’s start with Il Duomo” & this really big Xmas tree!

… & yeahhhh: there was this wonderful clear blue sky each day, this caring & warming sun (about 7/8° C at noon & in the afternoon!) … What an enchanting time (compared to our grey & rainy misery at home…)!

We visited Il Duomo – a real masterpiece (in the morning as well as in the afternoon … outside as well as inside …)!

We made lots of stops in cafés & bars & restaurants … we had sumptuous dinners & great wine … cocktails & the ubiquitous Spritz (wine/prosecco w/ Aperol) … Milan is not only a fashion & shopping city, but spoils its guests w/ history & cultural monuments, fine food & pastries …

Because of the fine weather we enjoyed walking the city & finally ended up at Il Castello Sforzesco.

… some details of the monument:

… & then there is Leonardo:

Fortunately somebody cancelled their reservations – so we made the Last Supper tour by only waiting for about 40 min. We made a deep dive into the painting driven by the famous Da Vinci Code & further literary volumes … honestly we think: it’s a woman!

… & Italian ice-cream … It may be winter, it may be cold – but there’s always Italian ice-cream in lots of cafés in Milan!
