Scenic Views Candidate #3–Canals of Milan

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of new images of only digital photography. Right now I am focusing on images that are scenic in nature. This was taken in Milan Italy in 2011. It is the largest canal in the city of Milan and lined with restaurants, clubs and antique store.

En Bruges

I have never been to Venice where some people say the canals are beautiful and others say they smell like garbage or death. I have been to Amsterdam which is a beautiful city and loaded with wonderful canals which are actually part of the city’s flood control system. I have heard the canals are full of abandoned bicycles but can vouch they don’t smell of death or garbage.

Then there is Bruges which is sometimes called the Venice of the North. A magnificent ancient city with a wonderful network of canals. I have been there a number of times and each time I am struck again with the beauty of the ancient town and the cleanliness and blue waters of the canals. Everyone should visit at least once and if you can’t make the trip then at least watch the wonderful movie En Bruges and you will see what you are missing.

Canali di Milano

Milan was a wonderful part of our European tour a few years and we met great people, saw fantastic sites and ate exquisite cuisine. On one of our last days there we were looking for something off the beaten track and saw in a tour book a small note that said not to miss the canals of Milan. I thought Milan has Canals? That’s crazy, so off we went. This is not Venice or Bruges but the canals are lined with antique shops, clubs and bistros and offer short canal boat tours. The colorful buildings help to create an interesting ambiance.

A lot of tourists miss the canal area of Milan. There are a number of clubs in the area and it is close to some less desirable areas of the city. However, the canal is also lined with antique shops and charming cafes. You can see a more scenic view of the canal and the colorful buildings that line the area in an earlier post The Canals of Milano. You can buy a print of this image by clicking here.

En Bruges

When most people visit Belgium they tend to go to Antwerp and Brussels. Both are wonderful cities in their own right. However, if you have just one place to visit in Belgium it should be Bruges. This medieval city is a gem of medieval culture. During the middle ages Bruges was one of the most important city states in Europe and a shipping center. Now it is a wonderful restored city and frequently called the Venice of the North because of its network of canals.

The Canals of Milano

We spent five days in Milan Italy last summer. It was a wonderful part of our European tour and we met great people, saw fantastic sites and ate exquisite cuisine. On one of our last days there we were looking for something off the beaten track and saw in a tour book a small note that said not to miss the canals of Milan. I thought Milan has Canals? That’s crazy, so off we went. This is not Venice or Bruges but the canals are lined with antique shops, clubs and bistros and offer short canal boat tours.
