Cosmopolitan Milan (Milano). City of models, fashion, and two of the most famous football teams in the world. I found it a bit overrated, but it's still a beautiful city nonetheless. I guess I just expected too much from it. The highlight of Milan is definitely the immense Duomo (cathedral). For me however, the highlight was standing in front of Leonardo da Vinci's famous "Last Supper", which can be found in Milan. Staring at that painting in person with my own eyes was as close to a religious experience as I've ever had.
