Milano by dawn

After dropping off my girls at the airport I stayed another couple of days in Italy and wandered into Milan city center at 7 am. It's interesting to be the only tourist and hell the only person in town in one of the most overcrowded cities on Earth.
{the famous Dome of Milan}
{the most famous and luxurious shopping center of Milan, forgot the name...}
{Scala on the left (the building was very disappointing, I expected something grand)}
{there must have been some big design event going on, the square in front of the Scala was full of pink snails, a nice pop of color on a grey and rainy day for sure!}

I love being awake in the early hours of the morning when you feel like the only person in the world!

Wish I could be back in Milano soon.
