This church is beyond beautiful and reflects the wonderful architecture of the 17th century. I've been there this morning and I felt the warmth and spirituality as I was starting my new day.

The Church of San Alessandro was built in the 17 century in the Baroque style. There is quite a lot of art in this church and the altar has remembrances of 6 saints. Above the altar one finds the dome and it has beautiful art.

Gorgeous interior and exterior, inside a beautiful quiet piazza hidden from the surrounding busy street traffic. Little cafe's nearby for lunch/dinner/coffee. Very nice "little Italy" experience inside the larger more modern Milan.

to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the

two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
