...Ciao Italia - Day 9 - Milano

another use of art to cover construction
...d Gallerie...with skylight roof
...feeding time for d birdies
After breakfast at d hotel, we ventured out for a ronda2 of Milano. Our 1st destination was d Piazza del Duomo, d city's main square, n we used d 'classic' tram (in operation since 1920s) to get there. Within d piazza r d Duomo (d Milan Cathedral) n d equally well-known Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, an imposing shopping mall completed in 1877 with its Neo-Classical (approaching Baroque) style (I read somewhere laa...).

We also managed to made our way to Castello Sforzesco or d Milan's Sforza Castle, built originally in d 14th century. D castle currently hosted a number of museums that include work done by Michelangelo. Other than that, we just wandering about along d pedestrian malls of Via Dante n later in d afternoon, we hopped on d tram to d end of its route n back...n enjoy d view of d various areas of Milano as well as d people. ..


nice tram ehh...everything in the interior was made of timber, this is d original 'Italian furniture' perhaps...slightly different than those collected by M'sian students during our Notts time...


Piazza del Duomo...it was still early in d morning...so not that many people around


n this is d Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II...with tourists thronging it in loads...


foto op for us in d interior of d Galleria


...there's even a Mercedes outlet within it...but more towards selling its 'lifestyle' items rather than car


d Milan Cathedral...took this foto a few hours after arriving there...a much more favorable natural sunlight exposure. Nice blue sky kann...but d construction cranes kiri-kanan tu ngacau jee...


n of course...a foto op for us


...I think even d uniforms for d polizie r designed by one of Italian fashion designers


one of d sculptures, Amor in this case, in d vicinity of d piazza
