A lovely piazza and fountain on the way to the
main Piazza del Duomo,
which you can see in the background.
One of the water outlets
on the fountain.
It being Spring the camellias were in bloom
in huge pots outside many buildings.
|A memorial column and garden |
on the way back to my hotel.
The gardens were full of lovely
flowers - daisies and tulips

They were very pretty.
The Church Campanile outside

stopped ringing after 7pm!
Of course Milan being in Italy was certainly not short of foodie experiences whether restaurants, cafes, ice cream shops/cafes, markets or cookery classes....More next time!
