The Milan Cathedral, the Milan Scala, the impressive shopping arcade Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the famous painting "The Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci and countless museums and art galleries: Milan is certainly not lacking in cultural highlights!

After the manageable and quiet Bergamo, I was slightly overwhelmed in Milan, hectic, crowds, traffic .......the children liked it Fashion, Fashion, Fashion ....
Milan is primarily known for the countless luxury brands that have their flagship stores here. On the Via Monte Napoleone you will meet rich heiresses and wives worth millions who - without batting an eyelid - spend tens of thousands of euros on a spontaneous purchase dress. Be sure to drop in somewhere for a coffee and just watch people!

thanks for looking

A very busy scene with your trademark of a "sun flare" which helps to concentrate your attention on the people. If anything like the usual main streets in a large town, the coffee will be dear as well, so go up a side street!

When a shopping mall could pass as a cathedral. Either way, it's the architecture of wealth and domination. I can imagine being overwhelmed...

The Italians - especially the females - have style, and that costs!
There's an almost religious feel to this with the light beckoning one to a better place...

A part of me is rather Puritan, and hte idea of spending thousands on a whim feels uncomfortable...

Or maybe I'm just a provincial lad at heart.

Beautifully expressive of an overwhelming experience.

The powerful contre jour works so well, makes it seem a bit unreal, which, for most of us, it is !

Great shot - has the feel of a cathedral with the light coming through the arch - I guess for some shopping malls are their new cathedrals. I can understand why you felt overwhelmed.

It was very impressive - and photogenic - in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, but more for window shopping than buying for the likes of me!! 😁 A fine capture here, Oliver, mono suiting the architecture well 👍
