Milano - First Day

The Delta flight was very pleasant. I had enough FF points to fly business class, but we could only book the outgoing flight. So, we are back in coach for our trip home. Boo hoo!

We took the Malpensa Express to the Cadorna station and then walked to Hotel Lancaster. Our room was very nice and had a huge bathroom with two sinks.

We hadn't slept much for two nights, so we crashed for a couple of hours. By then it was time for dinner. We got a recommendation from the hotel desk and headed won to Corso Sempione (a main drag). Lots of sidewalk cafes, so we sat down to have a glass of wine and to eat free appetizers. I had heard of the aperitivo bars in Torino but not in Milan. Yum! This was enough for dinner.

We walked a little further down Corso Sempione and found a huge crowd of partying young people. Headed back to the hotel at about midnight.

By the way, Milan is still pretty hot and humid, but a cooling trend is on the way. Yeah!
