Knowing I am going to visit Italy, me and my friend decided to put Milan in our list of places to travel in Italy. For fashion lover or for those who watch fashion shows, Milan shouldn’t be a foreign name for you all. It is known to be one of the fashion capitals in the world with major world fashion centre along with New York City, Paris, and London. Apart from the fashion, Milan is also widely regarded as a global hub in industrial design and architecture. Today, Milan is still particularly well known for its high-quality furniture and interior design industry.
We reached at the city of Milan around afternoon time. A short nap after, we went out to explore the city. We reached the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II where you may have an overview of Milan’s upscale fashion district. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II’s shopping arcade is one of the world’s oldest shopping mall and with range of famous haute couture boutiques including Versace, Prada, and Armani. It also happens to host Prada’s flagship store.
Once you are done with shopping or simply strolling inside, Milan Cathedral is awaiting for you outside. What is the outstanding thing to mention about this cathedral? If you are interested to know, it is actually the world’s largest Gothic cathedral. Moving on, here are some of the places we went to with historical theme.

Before I end my piece, this building caught my eyes with its glittering light bulbs. I was just sitting there for quite some time, resting my feet from all the walks done. Decided to take a shot and keep it for its good sentimental value.
