Duomo di Milano (The Milan Cathedral)

I MISS ITALY. So, so much. For those who follow my blog, you'd know that I'm crazy about the country, literally in love with it, and couldn't wait to be back. Until that happens again next year, I will have to be contented with just the memories I brought back from il bel paese (the beautiful country).

Today, I'd like to take you with me to Milan, specifically, the Milan Cathedral (or Duomo di Milano in Italian). This magnificent Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete, and it is the fifth largest cathedral in the world and the largest in the Italy. The view of the Milan city from the top of the Terraces is amazing! Enjoy!


Duomo di Milano is dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente as indicated on the signage above.

The Metro is just right outside this awesome Duomo.

This picture was taken after I came down from the Terraces. By then (almost noon), there were lots of people in the Piazza. I arrived very early in the morning and totally enjoyed myself with very much less people.

A man reading.

I was awe-struck.



It's time to climb the stairs to the Terraces. But before that, you'd need to buy the ticket.

Halfway up. I love this window.







Cute biciclette (bicycles)!
All my photos are taken using this guy that has been with me for the past eight years or more!
