Duomo day two
in addition to continuing to walk around the city, I decided to go back to the Duomo and pay the 6e to go onto the roof. I saw a photograph online of people literally on the gabled roof and decided that I needed to do this. plus the view was spectacular. the two foot wide tiny spiral stair up and up and endlessly up was quite suffocating and I almost thought I wouldn’t be able to make it. when I got out of the tower I was gasping for breath. the view was certainly worth the effort. it was absolutely incredible. I stayed up on the roof for quite some time just trying to imagine how this cathedral could even exist. sitting on the top of it and seeing the individually cut stones up close made it incredibly real. in the end, I could not fathom it. I think my brain might think it still isn’t possible for it to exist.
