The Duomo or as the Italians call it Duomo di Milano.
Considering it took nearly six centuries to complete and it’s the fifth largest cathedral in the world, you simply can’t miss it.
It’s THE thing to see in Milan. It’s everything people say it would be: monstrous, daunting, imposing, yet beautiful.
Its inside is spacious, almost bare, indicative of the Gothic style its builders employed when building it. I must say, though, I prefer the baroque-style, with its intricate details.
Its rooftop is a whole different story. It felt whimsical with the hidden nooks and all the spires jutting out.
I was convinced everything would line up perfectly if I just know where to stand.
Then there is everything else surrounding the Duomo: the restaurants peppering the streets behind it
and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which, while very glamorous, still pales in comparison to the Duomo itself.
Alas, like the moon reflecting the light of the sun, they, too, exist only to bask in the glory of the Cathedral.
