The first stop on my tour of Italy was Milan, a city known for its fashion, design, and food. It is a beautiful place reminiscent of Paris, and if you're there for anything other than fashion, it's such a peaceful place to be an introvert.

Leonardo da Vinci did most of his work in Milan, and many of his original sketches are displayed around the city, The Ambrosian Library is one of the quietest locations in Milan, and has tons of pages of the Codex Atlanticus, his most famous "sketchbook."

The Last Supper is one of Milan's most famous tourist attractions.
