In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19, public and private meetings are strongly discouraged in all the country.
People must stay at home. A distance of a meter or so is kept in case of any personal encounters. Webcams have temporarily become the default communication tool.
Shops, bars, restaurants, museums, exhibitions, theaters, concert halls and cinemas are closed till Monday, April 13 at least; so are schools and universities. Supermarkets, pharmacies, tobacconists and computer shops are allowed to make exceptions to the rule. Sport events have been suspended at all. More official news here.

 
One of the largest Gothic cathedral in the world, Milan's Duomo has a population of 6,000 statues, a solemn and lofty interior resembling a sequoia forest, giant multi-colored stained-glass windows and works of art to make any museum green with envy.

It's the seat of the one and only Roman Catholic diocese which - following its patron, Sant'Ambrogio still keeps to an ancient calendar of its own. Which is why Milan is still going wild with its Carnival when the rest of the world has started Lent...

Duomo

Take a walk outside, around the back of the enormous church, your nose pointing skyward to admire the interplay of pinnacles and buttresses. Then go to the top floor of laRinascente department store and look at the spires face-to-face.

You can also take a lift to the cathedral's roof - to scan the city from above - and visit, now that it has been reopened, the Museo del Duomo, or Cathedral Museum.

Climbing to the roof and entering the church are on payment. Respectively, fares are Euro 13 and 2.
