... it properly. Today it is kept in a hermetically sealed room to protect it further. Giacomo also pointed out all the symbolism in the painting, all figures cast in light apart from Judas. The grouping of elements in threes to represent the holy trinity, even Jesus depicted in a triangular shape, and Judas and Jesus reaching for the same bread. Leonardo worked on the piece for 4 years, but set up him Milan home and vineyards just across the road.

We boarded and sat opposite each other in quite comfortable seats for about an hour and a half as we both tried not to go to sleep in case we missed our station. John succeeded in staying awake. We alit at Genova station, were met by a man with a sign saying "Pearce" and were then transported in a Mercedes "S" to Monterosso. Our driver told us that he used to ...

Truly enlightening moment! We spent lunch at a small cafe called Caffeteria di via Picini by our hostel. Their version of iced coffee is the most amazing thing I've ever tasted! It is espresso mixed with slushy, sugary ice. We visited the absolutely breathtaking Duomo cathedral (built in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Una Hotel Century Milan
Great Hotel, very friendly
We have just arrived home from Milan after a lovley three night break, the Una Hotel Century could not of been better. We went with our two teenage daughters and the room was more than spacious, bathroom lovely and clean and room in good condition. Breakfast was very nice with Croissants to die for. I would recommend the hotel for quality and location, the Metro, train and bus station are within 2 minutes walk and there are some good little resturants close by.
I recently stayed here with my family for four nights, having got a great deal through Expedia. We had a family room, the kids stayed free but had to sleep on the sofa bed, no problem. The room was huge, lovely crisp linen, fantastic buffet breakfast with more than enough variety to set you up for the day. The reception/bar staff were very helpful and friendly, there was a great vibe in the hotel. It is very well placed being close to the Central Station (but not the sleazy part!) and the tram stops right outside, which takes you right through the City. Highly recommended!
One of best hotels I know in Italy. A unique combination: a business hotel with a cosy atmosphere. Very nice rooms, very clean and very large for European standards. Great offers on their website.
Was at this hotel from May 19th-May23rd 2005. I just have to say that americans will have to adjust their standards to consider this place a 4 star. For $258/night via expedia I was a bit let down. I had requested a non-smoking room as I'm an asthmatic, but was put on a smoking floor #6. However, the room really didn't smell that bad. Also even though the website states the facility has WIFI...they DO not have it. They do have air conditioning...an absolute must in ITALY during the summer. Great sound proof windows. Nice spacious bathrooms...with tubs. Hairdryer in bathroom. Outlet for american appliances in bathroom. TV with 2 english channels..CNN,and BBC. Minibar...with atrocious prices though. An good breakfast of eggs, bacon, cereal, muffins, bread, milk, juices, jelly, etc. Room service also available. English speaking receptionists.
We stayed here in 3/05 when we went to Milan.
Beautiful rooms - we stayed in an Executive Suite which is well recommended (17th floor with panoramic views).
We got a good deal on laterooms - good value.
