What we did not know, was that the 2 large clubs of Milan, AC Milan and Inter Milan, were having a match that day.
Can you imagine our surprise?
It took us considerable difficulty in reaching San Siro, for every single Milanese was trying to do the same! First we took the metro to a spot that was totally wrong. Then we went back to another subway station, looking for the right place to get on the bus. We found the busstation at last but it took at least half an hour before the tram arrived.
To make a long story short, we arrived at San Siro. By then, we off course had discovered that there was a match. Tens of thousands of Milano's gathered outside and inside the stadium and all tickets were sold. It was a bitter pill to swallow to walk around the stadium while a match was about to start and to hear the sound of thousands of people cheering and singing.
We returned to our hotel. It was our last day and we looked at the Duomo one last time. It was quiet now, just like the first day. It was a trip full of surprises!
