Milan City Tour 2nd part; 250 Steps Up to Cathedral's Terrace

Central Europe last part; 5-days solo wandering in Italy
October 28 to November 02, 2013


After visiting the Milan Cathedral inside with free admission, I went 250 steps upstairs for sightseeing on Terrace. Admission on this terrace costs 8 Euro. One of the very best experiences Milan has to offer is a trip to the Duomo's roof. You can take the lift, or labour up the steps to the marble terraces, amidst white pinnacles and statues. The view is fantastic, stretching over the city to the Alps, and the atmosphere is incomparable. The entrance is round the side of the Duomo; follow the signs for the roof (Salita alle terrazze). Perched high above Milan, a gilded statue of the Madonna watches over the city. Dating back to 1774, the statue is called the Madonnina, or the little Madonna, despite being 4 metres tall. The Duomo is at the centre of Milan in Piazza del Duomo, and at walking distance from many of the town's other tourist attractions.
