Needless to say, I wandered around the cemetery for hours.
The monument titled “the kiss” is one of the most famous in the cemetery.
The Campari family tomb is nothing less than a life size version of the Last Supper. It is incredible to see!
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.
