"A Heavenly Park" The Duomo Tip by tpal

The Duomo, Milan: 30 reviews and 38 photos

  Carol on the roof of the Duomo
by tpal

Fondest memory: This is one of my favorite pictures of Carol from our trip to Italy. I can't be sure but in my mind Carol is saying to herself, "Here I am sitting on the marble ridge of the roof of the Duomo in Milan Italy. How cool is this?" Well, it's pretty cool!

This is a magnificent cathedral but then there are a lot of magnificent cathedrals in Italy but how many times do you actually get to basically turn the roof of one these places into a park. In the first place, it's really huge. People are strolling around, sitting and talking, taking in the sights, having lunch and generally just chilling out. I don't think there was ever a moment when the designers of this building ever conceived this kind of usage but what a wonderful experience.
