Cathedrals in Milan
Milan Cathedral (Duomo de Milan)
(240)
The Duomo of Milan is a famous Gothic cathedral that's a true symbol of this city. This impressively large temple, among the largest in the world, was built during many artistic eras but I'd like to make a special mention of its famous stained glass windows which bend the light in six colors, as well as its six naves and endless columns. It is not known exactly who was responsible for their design and construction, but they stained glass windows of the Duomo are equally as famous as those of the Notre Dame de Paris and the Saint-Chapelle. When you go to Milan, be sure to observe the wonderful atmosphere they create!. The pinnacles and spires that adorn the wonderful and colorful roof of Milan's Duomo are also incredibly beautiful. You can visit the roof and walk among the statues, gargoyles and decorative ornaments. The highest point of the exterior of the temple is the Madonnina, created by the sculptor Giuseppe Perego in 1774. The view of Milan from the roof is absolutely breathtaking!
Shopping Malls in Milan
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
(127)
You walk in and you see that everything changes colour, everything takes a more vivid and golden colour. The truth is that it is beautiful and I loved its domed glass roof in the centre on top of the shield of Milan painted on the floor. I do not think it's a place to buy anything for obvious reasons but it is somewhere you have to visit. Also there is a McDonalds inside and that was the only place we could afford to buy anything.
Castles in Milan
Sforza Castle
(71)
The Sforzesco Castle is wonderful. In addition to finding a great place to spend an afternoon, especially in its gardens, its interior is also lovely. Each room is a treasure, not only for its exhibitions, monuments and sculptures, but the ceilings are wonders in themselves. Each room has a different one and each are wonderful, some with heraldic shields, others with stars... Spectacular!

Milano Centrale Railway Station
(82)
This time we went to Italy, specifically to Milan, a beautiful city whose church, Il Duomo, buildings and galleries I loved. It's really beautiful in every way. I also loved it because you can take public transport anywhere. Here are some pictures of the Duomo, the galleries and some other attractions. I was there in March. I hope you like them.
Squares in Milan
Piazza del Duomo
(72)
It is the main square in the city and it is beautiful. It is one of those places that you see in black and white like of old. The cathedral presides in it, although it was being restored at the time we were there so we saw it covered in scaffolding and mesh. We arrived and it was already full of people, walking from one side to another without stopping, thousands and thousands of pigeons with "panisottos" vendors selling corn so you can feed the pigeons or put your palm out so hundreds come to eat from your hand. It was a little overwhelming, at least for me, I did not like that very much. On one side there is the entrance to the Vittorio-Emmanuelle Galleries. In the galleries there is a bull drawn on the ground, and the legend says that if you turn your heel on the bull's testicles, you will have good luck. Everyone did so, but it pained me a little to see the poor bull even though it was only a drawing. It's definitely worth visiting the square for all the elements that it's composed of. They have created a beautiful architectural complex which is why it looks like a black and white photo.
Gardens in Milan
Parco Sempione
(38)
This is one of the most important parks in Milan. It was wonderful to visit it this winter all covered in snow and then this spring for our first "picnic". The park is very well kept and clean. You can easily go to workout, walk or just have a little taste of green space in this city, which can sometimes be gray.
Shows in Milan
Teatro alla Scala
(35)
The Scala theater is one of the most important theatres in the world. Open since 2004, when the restoration was finished after the damage suffered in World War II, the theatre represents work by the best artists of the genre. Interestingly, all operas are required to finish before midnight. In addition, the theatre has a museum with works of art, busts and costumes from different periods and all related to the world of opera. The most expensive tickets cost € 2,000 (during the season opening) and the cheapest tickets cost €15.

Terraces of the Duomo
(38)
The visit to the terraces of the Duomo of Milan can be done independently of the cathedral itself. For tickets to access the terraces, you have to go behind the cathedral, to a store (I think it was called Point Duomo) that is close to the National Palace. The ticket costs 8€ if you take the lift, and 5€ if you want to climb the stairs. We went by elevator, but keep in mind that there are times when there is a long line. We were lucky and in a little over 5 minutes we were going up to the terraces. Although part of the roof is still under construction, the architectural view of the Duomo up close is great. You can stroll along the terraces and even sit on the roof of the Duomo to see the peaks of the cathedral and its views. From the upper terrace, you can admire spectacular views of Milan, and that alone is worth the climb. It is a highly recommended visit.
Ruins in Milan
Colonne di San Lorenzo
(36)
In front of the Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore (http://www.Minube.Com/rincon/30778) you can find the only Roman remains of the city of Milan. The columns belonged to a temple in the second century. Alongside them there are long benches. The enclosure walls limit him a pointed arch and arch.
Stadiums in Milan
San Siro Stadium
(28)
Guiseppe Meazza popularly also known as San Siro, is in Milan in the San Siro, and is the home of the football clubs AC Milan and Inter Milan. You can visit the interior every day and it is a must see for football lovers.

Nightlife Districts in Milan
Naviglio Grande
(26)
Milan is also known for its canals. It is very pretty area, especially, reaching its peak at night. There are plenty of restaurants, places to drink and listen to music. It is a very cool area.
Train Stations in Milan
Trams in Milan
(17)
The photos attached of the Milan tram are characterized by what makes it special. As I understand it these trams are ancient, but they are very well kept. It's super easy to get around the center of Milan by tram. They tend to run often and have many stops. In fact, when I was in Milan I caught it every day.
Squares in Milan
Piazza Mercanti
(16)
One of the most interesting places in Milan, Piazza dei Mercanti was built in the thirteenth century and is situated in the medieval heart of the city. I visited the plaza my first day in Milan curiously looking for small holes in the walls of the square which, I was told, the merchants have used since the Renaissance to communicateswitch one another. I did not find any however. But apparently, the place also kept other secrets, such as those like the couple of photography.

Historical Monuments in Milan
Porta Sempione
(18)
The truth is that there isn´t much much to say. Just one more arc of the many that are scattered around the world, this didn´t impress me much. It´s very large and pretty but nothing special, with the exception that it was accompanied by one of the characteristic gates of Milan - two twin structures on either side of the Porta Sempione.
Cemeteries in Milan
Monumental Cemetery (Cimitero Monumentale di Milano)
(10)
It doesn't look like a cemetery at first, because the main building is huge and beautiful. When you enter, there are giant pantheons of all kinds and a forest that covers everything. The truth is I'm not big on cemeteries, but this is something else and it's honestly impressive.
Churches in Milan
Basilica di San Lorenzo
(9)
The Basilica of San Lorenzo was founded in 370 or so, was renovated and repainted in the sixteenth century but still maintains its original Byzantine structure. It's not far from the Duomo, but of course after seeing the wonder the Basilica of San Lorenzo you know little. Inside I was only an observer.
Squares in Milan
Piazza della Scala
(12)
Do not miss going through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle. This square hosts one of the temples of opera, La Scala, I had to look for it, having expected a more ostentatious building. Here also is Leonardo!
Train Stations in Milan
Milan Metro
(15)
The Milan metro consists of three lines: the red line for the north-west part, the green line for the south-east part and the yellow line for the north-south part. It is very effective, the time between metro stops is just a couple of minutes, so if you miss one it doesn´t matter because another one will arrive in a flash :D Tickets can be purchased at metro stations, on news stands and in newsagents. You can buy a single ticket or a travel pass for 10 trips, but beware! The travel pass is individual, therefore it cannot be used by more than one person at a time.
