The Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano), which took 500 years to build, was captivating from the ground but from the rooftop the challenge of trying to capture its raw beauty in a photograph became evident. While there are no shortage of stunning religious sites in Europe this one definitely tops the list. Our second adventure, recommended in the Rick Steeves - Europe through the Back Door DVD, was taking the street car to the Monument Cemetery (Cimitero Monumentale di Milano) - a site where history, art, peace and family respect become one. Spending the afternoon walking through this very unique resting place was a reminder of the family values, artistic talent, elegance and financial prosperity that define Milan.
