We stayed at Saronno for 1 night on our way home from Lake Como, so that we could have the next day in Milan. We spent the afternoon looking around the town. The churches were closed at lunchtime, but it was worth waiting for them to open at 3pm.

The sanctuary of Our Lady of the Miracles, built in 1498.

This wooden  sculpture is of Leonardo da Vinci’s last supper

Church of St Francis

Corso Italia

Villa Gianetti has a public garden

Church of Saints Peter and Paul

In the evening there was an open air concert in the square in front of this church, so we came back and enjoyed the music.

Next – Milan
