You have to book in advance to see "The Last Supper"? Wow, what a bummer. I bet lots of people go to Milan just to see that. Whoever would have though that after so many years there is still a waiting list. Well, that brings it down to nine things to see in Milan.
Incidentally I hope you were able to get supper somewhere else.
