“Impressive” is probably the most used word connected to giant cathedrals like the one in Milan. Well, I couldn’t agree more. The building itself, the third highest cathedral in the world, is awesome, but when you go inside it’s so dark and mysterious. So this photo is taken in there and it’s only one of the beautiful sights in there. Definitely visit the Duomo when you’re in Milan!
That pond you find in Milan in Parco Sempione (“Simplon Park”) behind the Sforza Castle. I always love it when you have a big park in huge and stressful cities, a place where you can relax a bit after a day of sightseeing. You can get better feeling how it is to live in that city, seeing the locals going for a run there.
One of the few photos which I have of Milan with a blue sky. Also in this shot, which my girlfriend took, it was only possible, because the sky was breaking up for a short moment. But that short moment gave a nice opportunity of an ancient church combined with beautiful flowers.
Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano) is the fourth largest cathedral in the world. It took six centuries to complete, and it surely is breathtaking when you’re standing in front of it. I can understand the people, that they built the whole city center around that building. Unfortunately during our stay we didn’t have any blue sky whenever we’ve been to the cathedral, so that’s the best I got.
Both times when I was in Milano it seemed to me that this shopping mall “Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II” attracted more tourists than the big duomo next to it. It is so crowded in there even though there is nothing but expensive shops, fancy restaurants and… McDonalds. And even though it looks great, I don’t like that place as there are way too many people. So I didn’t take a lot of pictures and this one was just a fast shot for the memories. Click here to get more information on the photo!
