Finally Visited Milan, the Capital of Lombardy

How would you like to go on vacation all  the time? Someone told me that despite being  jobless I  can still go on trips and  I do it  almost every month.  I am thankful that  that I am given the chance and opportunity  to visit places and countries every month. I am also grateful that  God give me always good health  everyday especially when I travel.  I am truly thankful for these blessings.

I just returned from a 5-day trip in three countries.  That was a  bus group trip and we visited Liechtenstein, Switzerland and Italy. One of the cities we visited was Milan. This city is quite  large that visiting it in a day is  not enough at all.  Inspite of that, I am still thankful that I have seen some parts  of Milan.

From our hotel in Baveno, Italy, it took for our bus around one hour and a half to reach Milan. On our way, the weather was friendly but as  we were getting near Milan, the sky was quite dark and grey.  The lady sitting beside me that it might be the smog, a combination of  smoke  and fog which makes the skies in Milan look like that. Everyone form the group were quite excited as we were approaching the city. I had the same feeling  because this city has been in my bucketlist to visit.  In short, we reached Milan  and had a  tour guide to discuss with us the important sights of Milan.

Let’s get to know a but about the capital city of Lombardy.  Milan is the second  largest city in Italy. Milan was founded by the Insubres, a Celtic people. The city was later conquered by the Romans, becoming the capital of the Western Roman Empire. During the Middle Ages, Milan flourished as a commercial and banking center.

“Milan is the main industrial, commercial and financial centre of Italy and a leading global city. Its business district hosts the Italian Stock Exchange and the headquarters of the largest national banks and companies. The city is a major world fashion  and design  capital. Thanks to its important museums, theatres and landmarks (including the Milan Cathedral, the fourth largest cathedral in the world, and Santa Maria delle Grazie, decorated with Leonardo da Vinci paintings, a UNESCO World Heritage Site) Milan attracts more than two million annual visitors.” wikipedia.
