Shades of Orange. A few memories from a couple of August days in Milan, capital of Lombardy. Italy and the relaxed lifestyle makes me always reflect and photograph its stunning architecture.
It was my 4th visit to bella Italia. I saw first the Milan Duomo and galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. I walked on Via Giuseppe Verdi and after that on random streets that seemed ordinary, but were filled with boutiques, libraries and beautiful building.
I might exaggerate, but every 5 minutes, on every street in the center you pass a “Palazzo” and each one has its story and architecture style, its history and is a piece of this city.
In a bookstore in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele I realized (once again) that Italian is the most beautiful language.
Fashion & coffee
Milan is particularly famous for Fashion. Hello, Fashion week! I saw many beautiful dressed woman. The mental notes I made involved many outfits. It truly is a city of fashion.
Italy is particularly famous for food and coffee. This trip best stop was at “Princi coffee”. I had a longer list of cafes and restaurants, but many were closed on Sunday and Monday. And others the whole month of August, the time I was there. So keep in mind when planning the trip.
Live as you dream
While in Milan, I casually went to visit Castello Sforzesco a fine Monday morning, and walked by stunning architecture.
Often, I found myself staring for minutes at Duomo di Milano, Teatro alla Scala and the gorgeous houses, and thinking about my life. And all the opportunities I found and did not miss.
