I just got home form my recent trip to Milano, and I had such a wonderful time!
The highlight was to visit a dear friend who spoiled me the entire time I was there.
On one of the evenings a sweet little dream came true as she took me to one of the most beautiful places I can imagine.
But more on that later;)
First off, let me take you to another stunning place.
It was built between 1865-1877, and even though it’s a famed tourist attraction, I love this building, and i’ve been mesmerized by it ever since I first laid my eyes on it many years ago.
I love how the light plays with the sculptures and decoration through the glass dome and the big arch entrances.
Like the city’s majestic Duomo, which I’ll tell you about next, I always pay these two places a visit when I find myself in Milano.
For me, walking through, regardless of the amount of tourists or locals, I feel so inspired, humbled by it’s beauty and I feel alive.
It’s hard to describe, but I love how the sun has a love affair with this building, playing with it’s glass windows, marbles floor, arches and dome.
Every day, no matter the weather, the sun flirts through clouds, fog, snow or through clear blue sky.
I never really pay any attention to the great shops that call this place home, I may people watch from time to time, but it’s heard for anything really to compete with this building so it always has my complete attention.
To me, walking through this majestic shopping-mall on my way to La Scala or the Duomo, it truly is the gateway to this Italian city.
It’s quite lovely how a building can inspire and make a person so incredibly happy just by walking through it. I don’t even stop to have a cup of hot chocolate at the charming cafes within it’s embrace.
There are so many other fantastic places for that, no, I just wander, slowly and gaze and let all it’s beauty recharge my inner creative batteries.
Well, just peak through one of the arches and the increabide Duomo will wink at you teasing you to pay it a visit.
Of course I’m completely helpless to such an invitation and smile coyly as I try not to skip and hop as I approach it’s massive oak doors.
Next up, let’s look at the Duomo and have a little drink shall we?
