Ok, so I guess Da Vinci's The Last Supper isnt for you.

I would say walk around the area of the Duomo.

This is assuming you want to stay in Milan proper. Not sure how much time you have, but if you can swing Lake Como, night be worthwhile

Does anyone know if there are any places in Milan that I can store a backpack for a couple hours? Like a locker?

Definitely worth it. Also, look into Locarno. https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Lugano

we stayed in Milan (for purposes of staying in PH Milan and food) and did day trips - one day to como, one day to stresa (islands there) and one day to locarno.
I highly recommend getting the lonely planet italian lakes book for ideas

We are planning a similar trip. How did you travel from Milan for day trips, via train or car rental, and how was it? Is one day enough for Lake Como, seems like there are several paces to visit?

we rented a car.
it was a pain in Milan because the area near the PH has traffic and no parking. Within Milan we only used it to get to restaurants. But since we were mostly out of Milan, it was great. We went with 2 kids so train wasn't an option.
Como has a lot to do but we allotted one day for it - we wanted to explore the whole region and were only there for 3 days.
That was also a benefit of the car - driving around Como and having the ability to stop in various places.

Thanks! I read that the driving can be scary due to sharp curves on mountains with narrow roads. Is this true or an exaggeration?
