I took a breathtaking walk on the roof of the Duomo in Milan. I've been on top of St. Peter's Basilica but this was even more magnificent. It was one of the coolest things I've seen. I couldn't believe how many statues and spires overlook the city. If you were on the ground looking up you wouldn't be able to see these amazing statues.
Mark Twain, a fan of the Duomo said: "What a wonder it is! So grand, so solemn, so vast! And yet so delicate, so airy, so graceful!
They say that the cathedral of Milan is second only to St. Peter's at Rome. I cannot understand how it can be second to anything made by human hands".
