Last holiday our tour was one of the most enjoyable and
fascinating adventure we’ve ever had before. My brother Moses and I had the
privilege to visit the most wonderful and beguiling city of Milan in Italy on the Europe continent. The city of
Milan is not only known for its diverse museums but also for its great
cathedrals, castles, distinctive streets and many other awesome tourist
spots. Moses had longed for this city
for a span of time. We were most
thrilled and overjoyed when we successfully secured our tickets to the city of
Milan. It was like a dream come true especially to my close associate and best
friend Moses who was the most pleased with that great opportunity. We chose Milan city because of the
availability of numerous and startling tourists attractions. Undeniably, Milan city
was surely one of the enthralling places that made our holiday marvelous. It
was indeed the best city that made our adventure worthwhile.
Cathedral of Milan
first attractive structure we came across. It was actually a large and big
structure having many exceptional features. By fact, the cathedral took quite more
than 500 years to completion. It was one of the biggest renowned Gothic cathedrals
in the city of Milan arena. The cathedral had many wonderful protruding towers.
Actually , the towers were about 135 in number. It also had more than three thousand
statuette on its upper crown. We used an elevator to reach its upper side
because it was the easiest means available, though one can still use the stairs
to climb up to the top. The top of the tower was with no doubt an awe inspiring
and overwhelming viewing point. We had a notable and clear view of the other
buildings in the entire town. We also spotted many attractive and pleasant
places of interest within the city. The cathedral also had Piazza del Duomo
square which was another interesting feature in the hub of Milan which abode
the Duomo museum and the present day art museum. It was certainly the most
enthralling place which made our adventure great and exciting.
We then advanced our great journey to the enthralling Opera house and the Museum of
La Scala. It is one of the historical and extraordinary Opera houses in the
whole city of Milan and Italy at large. Additionally, the museum of La Scala
had many awesome and amazing traditional items like the musical or melodic
instruments, the exciting drawings, unique carvings and without forgetting the
stylish monuments. We took many photographs from the museum which was to help
us to remember and have great memories of the interesting items that we
encountered. The opera house also
encompasses the largest hall in the entire city. The hall in capacity can
accommodate thousands people at a go. We ceased our tour at this marvelous
place having maximized all the interesting and attractive points.
We then proceeded directly to the Gallery
of Vittorio Emanuele II. The gallery was constructed in the 18th
century. It is one of the stunning places with glasses on its crown and on the
roof. Besides, it had many outstanding shops, entertainment halls and
restaurants among many other business premises. We had to buy some unique items
at the shops to carry with us. The items could help us to boast of our great
adventure and remember the city in the coming days. Moreover, the gallery hosts
one of the largest and biggest mosaics which peacefully rest at the wall. It is
used to display many useful places, among them being some of the new and
enticing cities in Italy.
Storza castle was our next
place we adventured. It is situated within the heart of Milan city. It was
indeed another wonderful place that made our holiday great. The castle used to
house the most famous and renowned imperial families. It was later used as the
dwelling place for armies. It was certainly another great and wonderful
experience to come across such a palace which historically was used long time
ago for state purposes. Moreover, the ancient palace contained drawings,
sculptures and other traditional items.
Lastly, we exploited most of our time looking at the primordial works of
art, the ancient musical instruments and the museums of archeological origin.
We didn’t leave anything a chance to go without exploiting its source and use.
It was certainly a great place to be and we vowed to return again in our next
We then advanced our tour to the great Basilica of Saint Ambrogio. It was the most appealing and
alluring place being one of the earliest and oldest churches in the city of
Milan. The exterior features of the church displayed tremendous Romanic
construction style in its architectural design. Moreover, the church had
vestiges and statues of ancient times. They were beautiful in their own kind
which also portrayed certain unique characteristics. Additionally, the church
also had the flaxen altar which mostly was used in the ancient times ago for
sacrifices and offerings. We also came across the monument of the vault of
martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of the church. It was surely an
interactive place and to which we vowed to revisit again.
Park Parco Sempione and Giardini Pubblici was another mesmerizing place worth
mentioning. It was a place that had many excellent concerts for fun, recreation
and entertainment. It was a brilliant
place that married our thoughts and feelings. The park is strategically located
just within the city thus more convenient after a very tiring exhaustive work.
The terrain profile of the place was indeed an admirable one as it was fully
covered with emerald green grass that gave it a pleasant and charming
environment. We relaxed for a moment before dusting our feet again to the next
point. Moreover, the place had an attractive and most amazing fresh water
springs. It is indeed a good place which is fully surrounded with good nature
that offers satisfying and pleasurable moments. It is certainly a friendly and
interactive museum full of fun.
Brera Picture Gallery was the
next place on the list. The picture gallery was definitely the most alluring
place to be. The gallery contained the statue collections which have stored
since primordial to date. The collection of arts dated back from the 14th
century to the modern day. We came across numerous anthologies of more the 600
collections of artifacts. We also had the privilege to stumble upon the good
works of the renowned and popular artistes like the Piero Della Francesca and Raphael
only to mention a few. The gallery also had a wonderful hall where more than 38
exhibitions were displayed to the audience. We ceased our lovely adventure at
this place with an urge to adventure this great place if gotten a chance again.
Lastly, Via Dante in the city
of Milan was another worthwhile place worth visiting. It was so exciting that
we almost extended our trip. It is one of the most superb streets in the world
having various entertaining leisure activities. The street was packed to
capacity mainly by the locals. It had several artists who were performing at
the time of our arrival. It was certainly an amusing place that strategically
ended our adventure with great fun and in good style. The trip was indeed a
remarkable one and more mind-blowing. We definitely without doubt agreed to
revisit the same city during our next trip to Milan city in our next holiday.
