This week, we return to Milan, the historical city in northern Italy which has a plenty of wonderful attractions to offer, some of which date back to the all-mighty Roman Empire. In other words, Milan is certainly a city you should add to your bucket list if you love architecture and history as the streets of this city hide more stories than you can possibly imagine.
While some of the places displayed in the pictures I bring you this week are truly old, others are much newer but still among the world’s first fulfilling their particular purpose. In this case, I am referring to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II which is one of the oldest shopping malls in the world. It was opened in 1877 and both its architecture and décor are simply impressive. This building definitely made it to the list of my most favourite places I have seen. I hope you will like to too.
Speaking of the truly ancient places, though, there are two basilicas in this week’s pictures. The Basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore and the Basilica of Sant’Eustorgio are connected by the so-called Basilicas Park even though the present-day official name of the park in the Pope John Paul II Park. Both these churches have roots in the Roman Empire and their foundations date back to the 4th century. Moreover, they are surrounded by many more antique monuments and sites as they sit in the historic heart of Milan.
Now, I am going to let the photos speak for themselves. Do not forget that you can use them in any creative works you might be working on at the moment or in the future. Just make sure you mention where you got them, we appreciate it.
