This was the BEST tour in my trip..Our guide was so well informed and able to communicate her love of Milan and its treasures. We toured and explored the great Cathedral outside and in, after a review of participants clothing...shoulders and knees MUST BE covered, enforced by guards at entry point. After that wonderful religeous cathedral we went to the other cathedral to retail therapy on grand scale.Walking on to the Santa Maria delle Graziie to prepare to take our turn to view the masterpiece. Walking into the large room with only our small group to take in this masterpiece was such a moving experience. Having seen the tiny Mona Lisa with thousands of people crushing in,this was a huge painting savoured in quiet and space. The wonder of this painting and experience was worth my trip to Italy.
