Why do all good things come to an end?!

I don’t know about you…but I hate goodbyes….

And I certainly hated saying good-bye to Milan.

Thank god I had a whole day to do it

We checked out after having our last breakfast for champions.

We left our luggage at the hotel and we were ready to rumble.

The Arco della Pace was not something we set out to see. However leaving Sforza Castle and walking into the large lush Parco Sempione the arch is hard to miss.

Started in 1807 by the architect Luis Cagnola, the arch was intended to celebrate Napoleon’s victory in Italy. However numerous delays and issues caused the arch not to be completed until 1838 under the Austrian rule of Milan. At one time the plan was to link the arch in Milan with the central boulevard of Paris. Unfortunately of course that never happened.

The bronze chariots on the attic of the arch are particularly impressive.

After wandering around for a couple of hours I was ready for a lil shopping tour.IMG_1575 IMG_1580 IMG_1579 IMG_1592

Even though I’m not such a make-up freak…this time I’ve overdone myself haha

We spent like an entire hour at Sephora and couldn’t decide what to buy.

Slowly but surely…I think I might develop a passion for make-up haha

I wanted to go shopping all day long haha but my friend suggested to go visit Duomo.

We were particularly impressed by the rooftop. As Rick Steves describes it, “you’ll wander through a fancy forest of spires with great views of the city, the square, and on clear days – the crisp and jagged Italian Alps.”

There was not much shade on the roof, so if the day is sunny and hot, like it was when we were there, I recommend visiting it either early or late in the day. It is a long way up, so I suggest paying a bit more for the elevator rather than taking the stairs.

1 ticket for the elevator was 12 € and the line was not that long.

IMPRESSIVE BUILDING!

It should be on everybody’s bucket-list

We had a few more hours left till we had to go back to our hotel and leave to the airport.

So it was time for a GELATO!!!

Time flies so fast when you’re having fun….one moment you’re in the middle of the city having fun…the next moment you’re already at the airport waiting for you departure.

Thank god there’s a Victoria Secret shop at the airport…….that took all of our sadness away haha
