Milan Duomo

First of all Happy New Year! 2013 went by at the speed of light for us. We were in Switzerland for New Year’s Eve with my son and his family. My daughter in law always has her boys make paper hats (she got the idea from an old Martha Stewart video). The boys are so creative and came up with really incredible hats.

The youngest one models one his Mom made.

We made a trip into Milan which is just over the border from where my son lives which means that the people in that part of Switzerland speak Italian. Those by the German border speak German and those by France speak French. The Swiss have their own ancient language too something I never knew until moving to France. This photo shows a shot of the Duomo from down a small street.

Children entranced by the candles inside the Duomo.

We climbed the 250 steps to the top and could see the square down below just packed with people, this being a Sunday and the holidays.

There are hundreds of statues on top of spires.

This man has a great view.

I would have gone into this place just for the view of the Duomo, if not a drink made with Aperol, but having five children along makes you skip things like this.

  1. We have fond memories of Milan, and walking among the spires on top of the duomo.

    Your photo of the children is perfection…you captured the light so well they look like little angels. You should enter this one in a photo contest.
