Last weekend, in addition to hiking the wonderful Cinque Terre, I also had the opportunity to spend an evening in Milan before the wedding festivities began.

I heard the nickname for this fountain translates to “Wedding Cake Fountain”, but who knows… This took like 10 attempts because my tripod and camera are obviously too small for people to notice and not walk in front of
I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to vote for my photos! Thanks!
