Begun in 1386 and at 350 feet tall,
Milan’s Duomo Cathedral is well worth the climb.
The stairs are worn and winding, just as you’d expect.
And the stairs do go on and on.
It’s the fifth largest Christian Church on the planet.
Canals had to be constructed to bring the marble in from almost 60 miles away.
Keep climbing. Stay away from the low parapets.
And don’t look down.
30 stories later, you’ll find your way to the roof.
The Duomo Milan was built off and on for centuries.
Napoleon actually finished building it at the start of the 1800's.
You are now 350 feet closer to heaven.
And the view from up there is, of course, is heavenly.

Champion boxer Floyd Mayweather will take on MMA scrapper Conor McGregor on August 26th.
The purses could be as high as $400 million for Mayweather and $127 million for McGregor.
To be fought as strictly boxing, even at 40 years old
Mayweather enjoys a monsterous advantage.
But don’t count McGregor out.
He’s a dozen years younger and he's insane.
