I had a little waiting time in the hotel lobby this morning, until my cousin arrived for our day out and about in Milan. We went to see Leonardo da Vinci’s Codex Atlanticus at the Biblioteca Pinacoteca Accademia Ambrosiana, now my most favourite place in Milan. Partly for the superb mosaic stairway in Sala 12 (dell’Esedra) but mostly because we both adored the library which housed the Codex exhibition. If I could take that home I would. After a late lunch, my cousin took me for gelato at Cioccolat by the Duomo, which we then had to walk off….a delicious but naughty treat! Not sure where dinner is yet, but I am sure it will involve more waiting in the lobby before I’m collected.
