Needless to say, I wandered around the cemetery for hours.

I spent a total of five and a half hours in the Cimitero Monumentale, after which it was time for a cocktail, so I headed down towards the Duomo to find a place to reflect on my day and sip a negroni!


I finally settled at a table outside, facing the Duomo, at Bar Duomo, where I ordered the most expensive negroni i have ever had!  Without looking at a menu, I asked for a negroni.  The waiter then asked me if I wanted a small one, or a large one.  I really only wanted a normal one.  I didn’t say that, though and ended up with a negroni that was big enough to satisfy three people, and set me back E 45, or about Fifty Five Dollars.  It was a hell of a drink though!  (Stay away from this bar).


After finishing the drink, I walked around for a bit more, and then headed over to a restaurant called BYS Milano where i dined on Wild Boar Terrine, followed by Deer with grapefruit and mushrooms.  It was heavenly.
