Lombardy, Italy All photos by Hetty
We spent our last day in Italy in Milan. First we went to Sforza Castle, which now houses museums and art collections. You can see quite a few of the castle courtyards for free.
The Ducal Courtyard has a fresco of an elephant
Villa Belgiojoso Bonaparte
Basilica di San Babila
San Carlo al Corso
Milan Cathedral is spectacular. We spent some time looking around the outside
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
Inside the gallery
Monument to King Victor Emmanuel II, outside the cathedral (where they were setting up for an outdoor concert)
The ancient Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio
Santa Maria delle Grazie
The Sforza family were buried here and their motif decorates the ceilings
and that was the end of a wonderful holiday!
