We finally arrived in Milan after 24 hours of travel on planes, trains, and automobiles weary and ready for bed. We stayed at a hostel called Pierro Rotta, and while it looked beautiful on it’s website, it left a lot to be desired. The “continental breakfast” was an assortment of cereal and dry breads, and the rooms felt a little like a prison cell—bunk beds and all. Additionally, it was soo far from the central city and we had to take two different metros to get there. But at the end of the day it was a bed and somewhere to leave our things and we were happy! We met some fellow travellers who were very sweet, and spent our afternoons wandering around Milan in the area near the Duomo and eating Italian yummies in the sunshine! A gorgeous city and one I won’t forget anytime soon.
