Took the train in from Arona to Milano Centrale with Matt and Sheryl, while the kids played at a friend’s house and Rhonda napped off a bad bout of nausea from yesterday’s boat ride. Took the Metro to the Duomo and the full tour, up on the roof terraces outside, then within the enormous cathedral, and finally to the archaeological digs underneath, to prior churches and other buildings sited 4 meters below the current pavement level. Then a nice lunch, antipasto of cold salmon and fresh anchovies, primo of penne with tomatoes, peppers and cheese, caffè macchiato, and walked to Porto Garibaldi and the train back, where Rhonda was greatly improved.
And a couple of hours later we were back at it again, having a very fine dinner at Vizio 5, great restaurant only a km or so from Matt's place. I had spaghetti alla scogliera, that is, with mixed seafood, primarily squid, mussels and clams. It was excellent, but they are really known for their pizza and I had a bit of Rosie's. It was outstanding. They have a really hot oven, cook a pizza only 60 seconds.
