Location: Milano (Duomo)      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 26 November 2017
Not easy pano, taken from the roof of the Milan Cathedral.
There are certainly cities with more beautiful skyscrapers, but are there great cities with a better mountain view?
The Allianz Tower is the second tallest skyscraper in Italy.

Great view! A bit to much contrast maybe.

Nice! I did not know there is such a huge Allianz Tower in Milano.

Stunning.

Convincing presentation with this mountain backdrop, which comes very contrasting therefore.
The question arises as to which city has a comparable background.

An impressive view with the buildings and Monte Rosa behind.

Great Pano! I think there are few Citys within a nearly great Mpountain skyline.. Maybe Munich, Torino or Veneto? I dont know..

Thanks for the friendly comments.
@Sebastian and Heinz: In my opinion, it depends on how much is the minimum number of inhabitants that we take into consideration. If we take into consideration only the cities with more than 500,000 inhabitants, besides those you have already mentioned, I would only add perhaps Lyon (I am not sure). If you take into consideration smaller cities, there are many.
Obviously, I'm talking about European cities. Outside Europe I do not know.

Two further clarifications:
The days when you can clearly see the Alps from Milan are very few (about twenty days a year).
The Allianz Tower, about 210 meters high, is not yet known because it was completed only at the end of 2015 and the offices have moved there a few months ago.

City and nature - an outstanding surreal contrast !!

Tanti saluti, Hans-Jörg

I like this extraordinary view with ab big city in the foreground and the alps behind. The contrast for me is too strong.

Phantastic combination of cityscape and the highest mountains. I agree with Jörg on the contrast in the foreground. Cheers, Martin

Spectacular Tele. Like the "Alps view" from Munich with the only "small" difference is that the mountains have almost doubled elevation here :-)

Stunning contrast between urbanity and nature.

gorgeouse!

Fantastico!!! Kind regards, Matthias.
