Today was a day taking the train to Milano, founded in 600 B.C. as Mediolanum, in northern Italy aboard the very comfortable. The high speed Frecciarossa train from Napoli took just under 4 hours. The remainder of this day was spent in the Museo Poldi Pezzoli, a former private collection which featured Italian Renaisance Art led by two excellent works by Sandro Botticelli, then walking around the Quadrilatero della moda, the chi-chi high fashion district in Milano, where Prada opened their first store, and Dolce & Gabbana, Robert Cavilli, and many other upscale fashion shops sell their expensive wares, and then the Giardini Pubblici near my hotel.

Above: This is how parking is done in Milano, and many cities in Europe. Space between cars is for wimps.
