-Milan-08

Hi! So Milan! It was very hot and very nice at the same time. The city is just about perfect in terms of convenience and everything about it, for me was perfect. Lovely Italian food, welcoming people and ultra luxurious shops!

This is a first set of pictures from the city centre and some views from our hotel! The second set will be from a southern part of the city, about that later!

Please press F11, before you start viewing the pictures (unless you already do that), just my advice!

Oh yeah, if you want muzic, plz:

Welcome to Milan!







+25 at 2 o'clock



This little park is just perfect












Central square with Duomo inthe background












Everybody is going places












I had to take a picture of this view, it's kinda cool in some way!







Damn paparazzi!

I didn't knew Milan was such a beauty. I only knew the Duomo so far.
Is that the famous shopping mall on the first picture?

Yes Benonie, A Vittorio Emanuele II

Thank you everyone!

Now it's time for the second set of pictures:

This is still from the city centre:






I was just going around taking pics of the thermometer, I couldn't believe how hot it was!






Pure Italian coffee!



Now this is interesting. The crane on the left is holding people who are having dinner in the air!















Nice trams in Milan!




Metro train at nite!



The following pcitures were taken in the southern area of the city, called Navigli! There is a long canal, where you can find many lcoal shops and cafes along it!





















Guess what it's made of?

This one moves me a lot because the idea of long distance is always close to me, especially considering I have some very good friends in the city you have just portrayed with your great photography skills. Oh, I can't wait until I am back in Italy.

They're made of 'Marzapane'

Marzapane is a Sicilian specialty: a mixture of sugar, ground almonds, and eggs, with which almond cookies and biscuits are made

I just love it
