Milan Christmas Day

Try to book at Savini, in the Gallery, or Aimo e Nadia, near Central Railway Station.
Many things to see, The main church, Duomo, the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, with the Leonardo da Vinci "Last supper" ( needs booking in advance, as soon as you can.
The place of "La Scala", the gallery Vittorio Emanuele, via Montenapoleone ( unfortunately shops are closed, a good luck for your American Express.....)
good luck, for Christmas, in my city.
