Shroud of Milan
Shroud of Milan
When I visited Milan, the magnificent duomo was, unfortunately, covered almost completely in scaffolding. But then, my whole visit to Milan was a total bonus. I was flying from JFK to Athens (where I was to make another connection to Heraklion, Crete), and I had a 4-hour layover at Malapensa International Airport (MXP) in Milan. Rather than just waste all that time at the airport, I decided to take the express train into the city center. I had no idea what there was to see in Milan, as I had not planned for a visit there; but on the train, I was fortunate enough to meet a fellow American who had a guidebook. Based on my review of that guidebook, I was able to give myself a really quickie tour of just a few of Milan's highlights -- including the duomo pictured above. Then I literally sprinted to the subway station, and barely caught my train back to the airport and avoided missing my connecting flight.. About the duomo itself: begun in 1386, its construction took nearly 5 centuries to complete. And, as can be seen above, it is still very much a work in progress. As a city, Milan dates back to Celtic times, and was later one of the largest cities of the Roman empire. In fact, in the late third century A.D., the Roman emperor Diocletian named Milan the western capital of the empire.
