Train from Riomaggiore to Milan

To get to Lyon, France we had to take the train from Riomaggiore, change in La Specia and we stop in Milan for 90 minutes before taking the train to Lyon.


Riomaggiore station.  Ready to go!


Small train and there are barely anybody in the train.  Everyone have to wear a mask inside the train.


We are now at Milan train station.


Milan train station is really beautiful and huge.


The station was opened in the early 1930s, replacing an older and smaller station. The imposing design of the building’s facade was intended to showcase the dominance of then-Prime Minister Mussolini's fascist regime. It's the second-largest station in Italy, behind Roma Termini.


Escalator to get out of the station.


Right at the exit of the station is Mercato centrale which is like a food court but better.



There are a lot of restaurants inside.


This area is for seafood.


All type of fish on display.



Bar area.


Hoa bought a glass of wine.


I am staying in line for some pasta.


There are a lot of tables around to sit.

This is our last meal in Italy so we had to order Pasta one last time and it did not dissapoint.
