I went to Milan for vacation. Milan is a city in Italy. I stayed close to a very big and famous church called the Duomo. The Duomo has a bronze statue on top of its many spires. In the square called the Piazza del Duomo, there were lots of people and pigeons walking around. The people were taking pictures, waiting in line to go inside the church and talking and having fun.
On Tuesday, I went to the roof of the Duomo. It was a lot of walking. The way I got to the top was by lift. If you went by stairs you would have to climb 250 steps. When I looked down, I realized how high I was and everything on the street looked tiny. There were little steps that I climbed leading to little windows looking into the church.
Milan has nice little walks and great bus tours. The bus I took on Monday and Tuesday was a double decker bus. I loved sitting on the top. I saw Milan’s castle which I had visited earlier. I also saw a very big soccer stadium and many other fabulous buildings.
I visited an Opera House called La Scala, and an exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings, paintings and writings.
Milan is a good place to visit but I really think they need to cut down on the smoking.
