Thinking of Milan

Last night as the Closing Ceremony of the Winter Olympics drew to a close I thought about some trips that I have taken to Milan, Italy which will be the co-host of the next Winter Olympics.

They showed a video of scenes from Milan and Italy and I thought about places that I had visited during my trips there.

Milan Italy, Duomo, Milan CathedralThe Milan Duomo is one of the iconic views in the city.

2006 Winter Olympics - Turino - Italy - Milan Italy 2006 OlympicsMy second trip to Milan was during the 2006 Winter Olympics and since Milan is not far from Turin there were many people sightseeing between the competitions. Here is a view of Duomo Square with one of the Russian athletes taking pictures.

So many memories have flooded back, especially as I searched for a few pictures to share of Milan. I discovered that I have not shared much about my trips to Milan, I may have to write some more posts about Milan.
