Once upon a time, the Formula One calendar wasn’t the world tour it is today. It was dominated by the Grand Prix circuits of Europe, the continent which pioneered the sport. There are now eight European destinations in 2014′s Formula One line-up, but today I’m highlighting five of them. Not only because of their appeal for quality Grand Prix racing, but also because they are found in parts of the world well worth visiting.
Milan, the city of fashion and the subject of this week’s Flickr Friday.
Apart from being where most of the top designers (including Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Armani and Gucci) in the world are headquartered, Milan is also famous for football, beautiful architecture, the sociability of its people (they invented the aperitivo) and its fabulous food. The cuisine of the Milanesi goes far beyond the simple pasta dishes you may expect.
Enjoy this collection of unusual angles to viewing Milan, and have a great weekend.
