Weekly Photo Challenge – From every angle

Milan’s Duomo is a masterpiece of gothic architecture. The second largest church in Italy after St Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the 5th largest in the world it took 6 centuries to complete and is breathtaking, even if religion isn’t your thing. Famous for its forest of spires, statues and intricate flying buttresses the visitor is even allowed up on the roof, for a fee of course, so the Duomo can be viewed from every angle!

For this week’s photo challenge I’ve had a rummage through my photo library to dig out a few of my favourite angles for you. I’d love to know what you think – leave me a comment below and let me know which angle is your favourite!

And for more of my photos why not join me over on my Instagram page DreamDiscoverItalia and lets share our views of Italy from every angle!!

    Great gallery! I been in this church … it’s absolutely massive and very impressive. Like your image with the feet in the door.

    • Thanks so much Viveka, your comments are much appreciated! And I agree, the Duomo is very impressive isn’t it! (And the sunlight/door pic is my fav too so good choice!!) Any plans to visit Italy again?

        Hi there, I never been to Florence and Siena – Hopefully I will make it *smile I had very mix feelings about Rome, but it’s many years since I was there.

      • Siena is a personal favourite and fabulous during the Palio season of July & August when the city resonates to singing, drums and large open-air dinners that go on into the wee-small hours! I recommend it! Florence is great for the art which is phenomenal! And Rome, although a busy and sprawling metropolis has its positives – I still love the Pantheon & Forum as the history is just breath-taking! Maybe give it a go out of peak season next time? Happy travels and keep the updates coming!!!

  3. Simply stunning, we have not yet visited this cathedral but it is on our list! The architecture looks so intricate and it’s great you were able to capture it from so many angles.

    • Thanks for your lovely comments – I hope you get to see the Duomo for yourselves one day as the architecture really is fabulous – although its not as bonkers spectacular as Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia!! Keep up the travelling and I look forward to hearing all about your explorations!

  4. So beautiful! I’ve only seen it once and only from the outside… But I am going to Milan at the end of te month and can’t wait to go in and climb up – the view seems spectacular!

    • I can totally recommend taking the trip up onto the roof of the Duomo although I took the lift rather than the stairs!! I hope its a nice clear day for you so you can appreciate the 360′ view and see out to the Alps etc! Thanks for popping by! Happy travels!!!!
