Reduced to tears of frustration making the booking, but eventually secured two tickets to see the Bolshoi Ballet at La Scala on 7th September. They turned out to be at a higher level than I expected, but it was still a superb memorable experience.

Such a beautiful and historic opera house! We enjoyed the displays, exhibits, and looking in on the hall itself from the boxes. It would have been wonderful to actually have heard music from the stage, but oh well. Timed our visit poorly.

Nice museum but I wished that there had been tour of the inside of the opera house and just a view through one of the boxes.

Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
