Since our limited budget only allowed for a cheap hotel that didn't even have a breakfast room, we had to go somewhere else - my friend really needs her coffee fix in the morning!
There's a cozy little cafe just around the corner where they make a hot chocolate so thick that your spoon will practically stand upright in it!
We spent a lot of time in here looking at all the Cinderella inspired shoes and bags. The nice young shop assistant followed us around, telling us about the inspiration behind the different designs and the special materials that were used. He didn't seem to mind that we were obviously not going to buy anything. It was like visit to a fashion museum!
The little church looks quite normal at first until you turn right and walk into the side chapel.... built on a former cemetery this chapel's walls are covered with bones and skulls of thousands of people!
I have always found the Catholics to have a strange fascination with the dead, but this definitely takes the cake!
Arrivederci Milano, I think I will be back! It's a great city to visit and as we proved during this trip it doesn't have to be expensive at all.
What's more, with the new tunnel through the Alps it will soon be only a 3 hours train ride away!
