Duomo di Milano, Italy's famous Catholic Church, also known as "Duomo Catholic Church", is located in Milan, Italy. It is the main church of Milan and one of the world's five largest churches, ranking second in the world. Construction began in 1386, the vault was completed in 1500, and the gold-plated statue of the Virgin Mary on the central tower was installed in 1774. Completed in 1965, it took five centuries. It is not only the symbol of Milan, but also the center of Milan. Napoleon held the coronation ceremony in Milan Cathedral in 1805. The Cathedral of Milan is the largest Gothic Church in the world. It can hold religious activities for 40,000 people. After six centuries, architects from Germany, France, Italy and other countries have participated in the design of the cathedral, bringing together a variety of national architectural styles. The church is characterised by its shape. There are 135 minarets with pointed arches, wall pillars and window lattices. They are like dense towers pierced into the sky, and there are statues of gods on each minaret. There are more than 2,000 statues outside the church, which is very strange. If there are more than 6,000 statues in the interior, it is the Gothic church with the largest number of statues in the world. Tickets 2 Euros, it is suggested that booking online in advance, or buy tickets to queue, into the church to queue, bare square, the sun can make people dizzy. There is a toll-free toilet at the ticket office, once a euro. You can climb the top on foot through 920 steps (8 Euros), or you can choose to climb the top by elevator (13 Euros). In the square in front of Milan Cathedral, when I was taking a panoramic view of the front of the cathedral, an old Italian handsome man came up and grabbed my hand, put a handful of corn kernels in my hand, instantly the pigeons stood full of my hands and arms, then I could not give up, took some pictures, and then the handsome man grabbed my hand and let go a handful of corn, still hot. Help me take pictures. I thought at that time that it would not be free, but thought that it should be 5 Euros to be sent, no matter what, I didn't expect to end after 50 Euros, and then bargain for 20 Euros, in fact, there are police in the cathedral door, but I am with the group, do not want to delay the time of team members, there is no police, I suggest that you stay away from these people, take some bread to go. Feed the pigeons. So many times out, the first time was routine, think a little angry. And everywhere there are little black people with red ropes tied to their hands, so stay away from them.
Milan is really not much fun, but it's really a stop to miss. Even for a cathedral. Please be ready for half a day. Big cities have convenient transportation, and the doorway is the well-known Duomo subway station. Previously, I saw a lot of online ticket purchase in advance, but I did not know how to buy the cathedral ticket, and it was not cost-effective. Ok in English or recommend to buy tickets directly at the ticket shop. Ticket office management is very orderly, is the purchase of tickets + gift shop two in one. It's worthwhile to get to the top of the cathedral. The decisive purchase is a 16 Euro/bit Domo Pass A ticket, including Cathedral+Terraces by lift+Duomo Museum+Archaeological Area+San Gottardo Church. It's still easy to get anywhere. Although it is the elevator passage, we arrived at about 10:30 a.m., or a 15-minute queue, acceptable, more comfortable than walking to the top. There are Chinese promotional pages available at the ticket vending place. It's clear at a glance. With security checks, the elevator is fast. 160; the weather is super powerful, and the scenery is infinitely good. Compared with the rain of the previous day, the church became more beautiful with the blue sky and white clouds on the day when it reached the summit. It's amazing to see these five hundred years of lacy Gothic architecture at close range. How delicate the sculptures are in the details. From top to bottom, the sculpture is full of complexity and exquisiteness. Walk slowly and pat on top for about an hour. After getting off the elevator and taking the fast way to visit the interior of the church, I immediately remembered that the melody decoration and design of "painted glass windows, decorated with Gothic churches." were very artistic, and the whole church itself was a work of art. The archaeological area seems to understand or not, but you might as well go down and have a look. If you have time, don't forget to visit the Cathedral Museum. I think it's interesting. Come out and go straight to the gift shop, the price is more conscientious. T-shirts are not expensive around anything. A Swarovski necklace, 29.9 Euros. If the church doesn't mean anything, then feeding pigeons in front of the square will be very nostalgic. If you don't bring snacks, you may be entangled by Xiao Hei to buy food.
Milan Cathedral has more sculptures on its exterior walls than other churches, so that it looks like lace. Walk more than 900 steps to the top and take the elevator to the top floor. They are 9 Euros and 13 Euros respectively. There is a special statue inside the Cathedral of Milan, which was created by Michelangelo. At first thought he was a thin ascetic monk. Look closely at a disciple of Jesus who was tortured by skinning. Muscles and blood vessels were clearly visible, and what looked like a robe was his own skin. Looking closely, you can also see the outline of the face, hair and hands and feet on the human skin. There is also a crystal coffin in the basement that holds the remains of a bishop 400 years ago.
From Milan Central Railway Station to Cathedral Station by M3 Yellow Line Metro Station 4, the ticket is 2 yuan, you can visit the church. It costs 11 yuan to climb the church on foot and 15 yuan to and fro by elevator. The interior of the church is magnificent, exquisite and historical. Upon reaching the top, you can get a close view of the sculptures on many spire pillars on the church roof. It is suggested that at least two hours should be allowed to attend carefully, so as to reach the top level.
