To get there however we needed a bus and we missed it. This meant we had to walk, but fortunately there were plenty of things well worth looking at. This is the Basilica San Lorenzo from the back. (I think it looks better from the back).
It was still beautiful though! When we arrived the sun was almost set and the top half of everything was covered in gold.
We had a look at some of their ancient frescos, the man himself and then went on our way. By the time we hit the January sales it was completely dark but Via Torino was still heaving. We pushed our way through the crowds and I could feel desire for buying things evaporating. Shopping on Saturday in Milan is not for the Milanese.
Until I saw this really cute navy buttoned skirt that is.
