In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Starting from Monday, April 12 shops may stay open, bars are allowed to provide take away service till 6pm and restaurants till 10pm. Museums, however, are closed, and so are theaters and cinemas. No evenings with friends: two guests max, no more than once a day. Curfew 10pm-5am anyway.
.:. Official news at the YesMilano website.

 
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.
