I highly recommend you visit when you are in Milan. This was an amazing respite from the city but still within the city. Bring bug spray as the mosquitos were fierce but the views were gorgeous.

Where does this doorway lead? Sometimes you just have to follow it and see!

I collected many such pictures on our trip to Milan last September and have often done the same on past trips to Italy. They are always so fascinating especially when they give such tantalizing views of what lies beyond.

Who works here? What do they do? Where does this doorway lead? 

I found myself asking these questions every time we passed an entry like this. I collected many such pictures on our trip to Milan last September and have often done the same on past trips to Italy.

A couple finds respite in the cool shade of the garden on a hot Summer day. We did the same. After walking through the garden we found a bench and just enjoyed the scenery. The mosquitos got to be a bit fierce, though. Bring bug spray if you visit in summer. 😀

I ended up taking lots of photos of storefronts during this trip. There are so many interesting and unique displays and often the stores themselves are just as unique.

In this scene we get an important lesson on how sight lines can make a garden seem much larger than it is. The leading lines of the pathway, the encroaching growth of the plants and the architecture at the end make it seem like the garden goes on for an even greater distance. 
This garden is hemmed in By buildings on each side and isn’t particularly large, but new vistas were always opening up as you walked about.
