1.5 days in Milan

Hello. I'll be in Milan for 1.5 days later this month. I'm staying at the Hotel Berna by the train station. I have tickets to see 'The Last Supper'. Other than that, I want to visit the Duomo area. I won't have time to venture outside the city. Any other recommendations for the short trip? How about good restaurants?

Thanks.

The Berna is close to a metro stop, so you'll be able to get around easily. I recommend hoofing it up the stairs of the duomo to the roof - excellent view, and it's cool to see the spires up close. Sforza Castle is pretty good, and if you go early in the a.m., you'll have the place to yourself. I've heard the cemetery is cool but I've never been.

I didn't have much luck with restaurants, but the breakfast buffet at your hotel is MASSIVE by Italian standards. Beware the "bacon" and stick to more recognizable foods.
