Nigel D. Presents The Milan Cathedral & Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

posted by Nigel D. October 29, 2014 4 Comments

During the summer of 2014 I had a chance to explore a few cities in Italy. One of the stops was one of the fashion capitals of the world, Milan. Two of the most famous landmarks in Milan are the, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II & Milan Cathedral. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is one of the world’s oldest malls.

The Milan Cathedral is the world’s fifth largest and took almost six centuries to build. People are allowed to go inside the Cathedral along with being able to go see the amazing rooftop. You can either take an elevator to the top for ten euros or walk up several steps at a cheaper price of six euros. I will say I did see a lot of people struggle with the walk but they all eventually made it up. The stairway is narrow and people are coming up and down. The line for the elevator was long, while for the steps you could quickly begin your troop. This was the line for the elevator.

The roof is a must see if you visit Milan. It is massive and full of intricate architecture and statues. In fact there are a total of 3159 statues on the building which is the world record. I probably spent an hour exploring the roof.

You also have to pay two euros to be allowed to take pictures inside the cathedral.

I was there for two separate days so I didn’t get to do too much. I have also been to Rome, Capri, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.
