Duomo by night Photo by Walks of Italy

People often forget  that Milan is home to the largest, and one of the most awe-inspiring churches in Italy. The Duomo di Milano is an incredible example of gothic architecture that took nearly six hundred years to build. It tends to produce strong emotions in everyone who sees it – Henry James was impressed, John Ruskin hated it – so the only way to make up your mind about it is to come see it for yourself.

The pedestrianised hub of Milan’s social life, the ever busy Piazza Duomo. In perfect symmetry, 135 pinnacles and some 3,400 statues embellish the Catholic city’s cathedral and prime place of prayer.

Corso Sempione looking down through Arco della Pace to the Castello. Although these are symbols of Milan, I love the slightly Parisian feel of this beautiful wide tree lined street which is not typical of Milan’s narrow shop lined streets.

On a rainy day in Milano, I fell for the city’s many charms…exquisite shopping, gorgeous architecture (and people), cafes serving mugs of hot chocolate and it’s spectacular Duomo. I’ve returned many times!
