In the early morning of 25th December, we caught a train from Florence towards Pisa – a city famous for its leaning tower.
I visited Milan – the city of fashion in Italy twice. Once during Christmas as a part of our Italy tour and once for a couple of hours (Milan was our stopover) while visiting Nice in France. We experienced a rainy day during our first visit and a sunny day during the second visit. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, located next to the famous Milan Cathedral, was glistening and glittering bright on both the days.
The description of Pompeii as a world heritage site, an ancient Roman city in southern Italy would fall short if its existence near the doorstep of Mount Vesuvius– the infamous volcano is not mentioned.
