Ciao bella! This week I traveled to beautiful Milano and have enjoyed a lot of time sight-seeing. In the four days I’ve been here I have seen and learned a lot. This is the first country I have been to outside of the states so each experience has been new and exciting for me! Here are my three favorite places I have visited so far!

Duomo di Milano

The Duomo Cathedral is one of Italy’s largest and most famous attractions. It is the world’s largest Gothic cathedral and second largest Catholic cathedral. Duomo di Milano is dedicated to Saint Mary of the Nativity. It took nearly six centuries to build beginning in 1386, being completed in 1965. You are also able to visit inside which is personally my favorite part. Stay tuned for my vlog to see more!
