Day 5—Travel Day! (Aug. 16)

We headed to Milan from Alessandria to tour downtown before catching our flight to Barcelona. Milan was beautiful! We visited the Castello, a fort built in the 15th century, then headed into the main square where Duomo di Milano outshines everything else.

Duomo di Milano is the third largest church building in Italy, dedicated to St. Mary. Team ASA wandered the streets of Milan for a few hours and then it was time to hit the airport, Barcelona was next!

We arrived safe and sound in Barcelona and enjoyed dinner while watching the second game between Barcelona and Real Madrid at our hotel — then off to bed!

Stay tuned for Day 6 — Touring Barcelona and a clinic at Mini Estadi with FCB Escola!
