Milano

Piazza in Milan, a major roundabout with the department store Coin in the background

The Galleria, the original glass covered shopping mall.

Duomo di Milano - the Cathedral in Milan - dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente, it was built with the goal of housing the city's then population, its now the fourth largest church in the world.

Inside the duomo

On the roof of the Duomo. Yup, you can get up there. Super cool.

In the Galleria, looking up at the murals.

Espana! Nederland! Sunset on the Duomo and football fans gathering for the World Cup 2010. In half an hour, this piazza will be PACKED and the jumbo-tron on a building to the right will be blazing with action. This was one of the only times it was okay (by Italian standards) to sit on the ground, an action normally abhorred.
