... 18th century.
Next we took a trolly car ride to Santa Maria delle Grazzie to view The Last Supper. Giacomo told us all about the differences between fresco painting and the new technique Leonardo tried to invent for this piece and how this difference first led to the wall absorbing all the pollutants duling the work for centuries. How the various caretakers had tried to repair and repaint through it's lifetime until the 1970s when the began the 20 year project ...
... through Galleria Vittorio Emanuele to get to Via Montenapoleone, Milan's upscale shopping street to droll over the designer apparel. We couldn't resist stopping for gelato which was exceptionally delicious! Just when I thought I was getting the hang of the city, we headed to the Navigli area for "apperitivo".... We were completely lost and walking in circles for 3 hours. We ended up at a subpar Italian restaurant, but were happy to be able to sit down. Desperate to actually ...
... to see Puchini's "Turandot" but the rain squashed that idea. However just about fifteen minutes before curtain, it started to clear so I poked my head into the box office and got an 11th row seat. Two operas within 5 days and I'm not sure I even like opera but it seemed like a good idea and I was not disappointed. I don't know if the pictures I sneaked do it any justice. There were over 300 people on the stage with such an elaborate set, that at scene ...

... difference here was that all this activity seemed to be completely choreographed to the music. It surprised me to see that while an aria was in full swing another singer would be hanging out washing for instance, but all was completely synchronised with the music.
I wrote up some notes from the show for the blog and they went on and on for ever so I will leave it at that. Suffice to say that I found the night a wonderful experience.

Historical Traveler Reviews Idea Hotel Milano Watttredici
A new hotel with an interesting but not very practical design (the white carpets are already heavily soiled...).
Wonderful design hotel
Despite the location, the hotel is clean and with modern decor and comfortable duvet, the breakfast is great with a variety of food from eggs, hams, yogurt, fruit to cakes. The staffs are helpful and friendly.
There is a supermarket called Lidl just turn left and then right from the hotel.
From Porta Genova station, you can take no. 74 bus and it takes only 10 min to reach the hotel, we recommend to get off at station Tosi (one stop before Watt) as it's closer. The no. 74 bus runs till midnight so you don't need to worry if you go back to hotel late. Also, it's better to take tram no. 9 which takes you to Central station directly and you don't need to carry with you suitcases up and down the metro and also safer.
Wonderful Modern Hotel
We arrived at 10pm and the staff could not have been more helpful. We checked in, popped across the road for a takeaway pizza and devoured it in the hotel lobby with wine bought from the bar.
The hotel itself was beautiful, the rooms were spotless and very quiet. We found the staff very helpful - other reviews have commented that the bar is unmanned. It is, but if you ask at reception, they'll happily get you a drink or two.
Breakfast was great, plenty of food with a good selection. Things did run out (for example the sliced bread) but if you waited a few minutes it was replaced.
Tram number 2 takes you from the main road straight to the centre - you can buy your tickets from the edicola at the top of the street.
Me quedé muy impresionada con este hotel. La habitación era preciosa y muy moderna. La cama era enorme y muy cómoda. La única pega que tiene es su ubicación. Ir andando a la estación de metro de Romolo, que es la más cercana, lleva bien 10 ó 15 minutos, y puede suponer ¡algo más que un pequeño esfuerzo! después de un montón de pizza y cerveza. Por otro lado, faltaba un poco de organización para los desayunos, los domingos a la mañana teníamos que esperar 10 minutos para conseguir mesa a pesar de que el personal se esforzaba y eran muy atentos. Lo justifico porque todavía debían de estar empezando. Sin duda recomendaría este hotel a quien no le importe tener que caminar un poco. Después de todo no era para tanto y era más sano después de tanta comida y bebida, y además la zona es mucho más tranquila. ¡UN BUEN CONSEJO!: En tu lugar yo no me molestaría en alquilar un coche. Las carreteras son una locura y los conductores no dejan de crear atascos por todas partes. Aparcan donde les da la gana, si hace falta en medio de la carretera. E incluso en esta zona lejos del centro aparcar parecía complicado.
Mi marido y yo pasamos 3 noches en este hotel el fin de semana pasado. Aunque llegamos a las 2am (debido a un retraso en el vuelo), la persona que nos atendió en recepción nos recibió muy amablemente. El hotel es muy moderno, extremadamente limpio y todo el personal fue muy amable y atento. El dormitorio estaba muy bien, tenía una cama enorme y una televisión con pantalla plana. El baño tenía una ducha muy moderna que estaba genial. El desayuno era delicioso -fruta fresca (piña, peladillos, manzanas y ciruelas), yogures, frutos secos, bollería, cereales, huevos con bacon, y distintos tipos de té o café recién hecho, no del instantáneo. Aunque este hotel no está en el centro de Milán, puedes comprar un bono '24 horas' que te permite viajar en metro, tranvía o autobús por tan solo ¡3 euros! Tienes que comprar el bono antes de subir al autobús. La parada de autobús está situada al salir del hotel a la derecha y puedes comprar el bono en el quiosco que hay enfrente a la derecha. El autobús número 74 te lleva a Porta Genova, la estación de metro desde donde puedes ir a cualquier sitio en Milán. Un hotel magnífico.
My husband and I spent 3 nights in this hotel last weekend. Even although we had arrived at 2 am (due to a flight delay) to check-in, the member of staff at reception gave us a pleasant welcome. The hotel is very modern, extremely clean and every member of staff very helpful and pleasant. The bedroom was very nice with a huge bed and flat screen TV. The bathroom had a great modern shower. The breakfast was delicious - fresh fruit (pineapple, nectarines, apples and prunes), yoghurts, assorted nuts, pastries, cereals, bacon and eggs and any type of tea or coffee, freshly prepared, not from a push-button machine. Although this hotel is not in the centre of Milan, you can buy a 24hr ticket for travel on the metro, tram or bus for only 3 euros!! You must buy a ticket before going on the bus. The bus stop is located on the same side as the hotel, along to the right and you can buy your ticket from the newagent's (edicola) across the road and just a little bit further to the right. The bus no. 74 takes you to Porta Genova where the metro station can take you anywhere else in Milan. A great hotel.
I really was impressed with this hotel. Very modern, and lovely room. The bed was huge and very comfy!
Ich war von diesem Hotel wirklich beeindruckt. Sehr modernes und hübsches Zimmer. Das Bett war riesig und sehr bequem!
We have just returned from a 3 day trip to the Watt Tredici and had a great time. We arrived pretty late at night (around 1am) at the Centrale Station (having caught the bus from the airport). Unfortunately on arrival the only option available to get to the hotel was via taxi.....they all had their meters turned off and were quoting a general charge of 40 euros....a little excessive for a 10 minute journey! The taxi driver eventually found the hotel for us, though there is no sign outside the hotel.
A party of 9 stayed at this Hotel for the weekend. Apparently hotel had been open 4 approx a month. Everywhere was new and minimalistic. Bar was adequate, Buffet breakfast had something for everyone starting at 6.30 - 10.30, but when its gone, its gone. Situated a couple of miles from central Milan, turn right out of hotel then next left past the Lidl supermarket, then walk to the top of the road, purchase a ticket for the tram from little cafe on corner, for a euro, or a 24hr ticket for 3 Euros. When you get on the tram the No2 place your ticket in the machine by the front of tram, where your ticket is stamped you have 75 mins to travel anywhere on trams buses, or underground, beware inspectors do issue on the spot fines for no or unstamped tickets. takes about 10 mins on tram you end up in city centre.
