Milano Sei Meraviglioso

Piazza del Duomo

Milan was marvelous! While all our other friends were sleeping, Lauren, Carson and I hopped on a train at 6am and headed off to the fashion capital of Italy. We spent all of Thursday in the big city, and returned that night to an empty camplus since everyone else had left for a week-long trip to Poland.

I’ll admit I had a pretty rough time waking up so early. But, it exploring Milano was definitely worth the lost sleep. Having learned from my experience in Venice, we grabbed a map and found our route to the Duomo di Milano. Along the way we planned to stop for an early lunch, and walk through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

The Galleria was gorgeous. All the high-end fashion stores and high-priced cafes fit so beautifully into the neat architecture. We stopped by a couple of the shops, and it took everything in me not to treat myself to a luxurious handbag or some other accessory. Good thing the Galleria was right next to the Piazza del Duomo, so we made our way out of the shops and towards the museum.

Another one of the many incredible churches and duomos I’ve been lucky to see, the Duomo di Milano was breathtaking. This trip to Milan was the first time I got the chance to enter a museum and the Duomo itself. Although they didn’t have any student discounts for the tickets, exploring the museum and Duomo was worth the price.

To be honest, I don’t tend to find museums very interesting. They are always just filled a bunch of artifacts with little plaques describing what they are and where they came from. But, I decided to let myself really be captivated by the pieces displayed from the Duomo. There were some amazing sculptures built, and gorgeous stained glass windows which had previously decorated the interior of the Duomo.

After entering the cathedral itself, I was amazed by the architecture and all the small details that completed the beauty of the place. I found myself wanting to learn more about the history of the building and about Milan as well. We eventually made our way to the roof of the Duomo, which gave us an unbelievable view of the entire square.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed our time admiring the cathedral and exploring some of the shops around the square, I regret not going to the Milano Expo. I have heard some amazing things about the Expo, and if I get the chance, I definitely plan on returning to Milan before it ends.

I realized that I need to do a little more planning before I visit every city, so I know what I absolutely want to see and what I can go without. I’ll make sure to do some more research before each of my next adventures!
