Milan’s Main Sights

I’ve never done much sight seeing in Milan, even though I’ve been many times to visit friends. This time around I only had one evening in the city on my way back to Paris from Umbria. I decided to check out the main sights and work on my iPhone photography.

The main attraction in Milan is the Duomo. The Gothic cathedral took around 600 years to build which gives you some indication of how things work in Italy.

Italians love to protest almost as much as the French.

Is that guy wearing a skirt?

Don't trust guys in tall hats.

Right next to the Duomo is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. It’s an exclusive shopping arcade which leads to the Teatro Alla Scala opera house. I suppose it’s not that exclusive seeing as there’s a huge McDonald’s there.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II: Window shopping at its best. 

My favourite part of Milan is the Castello Sforzesco. Sitting on the fountain in front of the castello with a gelato is one of the most popular things to do in Milan.

Castello Sforzesco: The place to eat gelato in Milan

At the rear of the castle you can sit in the park and relax in the shade (also with a gelato!).

I wish the moat at Castello Sforzesco was still filled with water. That would be cool.

I would like to live here.

There’s lots more to see in the city as you wander around the old town.

Milan is not just grand boulevards and shopping.

Street art and weird curtains.

I will be back in Milan in June. Any tips on other things to see?
