Tourist Manages To Get Stuck On Top Of Duomo Cathedral in Milan

There are plenty of places where it would be amazing to be accidentally locked in for the night. This might not be one of them.
Details are scarce surrounding this report. We do know that the tourist is 23 and owns an Illinois passport. Aside from that, the report states the poor guy was apparently overlooked during the final security pass by guards.
Instead of causing a fuss, the anonymous man just sat up there enjoying the Milan night until Tuesday morning came around and officials discovered the mistake.
The man didn’t face charges, per the report. We imagine the frustration of spending a night in solitude was enough.
Now if you want a similar experience, the cathedral does offer a 360-degree feature on its website.
We know many of you will consider being stuck on a beautiful rooftop for a night in a wondrous city would be an amazing turn of luck.
Sure, but it’s not like this was planned. Of you could savor the stars in this remarkable spot and reflect on your life in a location that breeds those kind of thoughts.
What do you do after that?
After an hour stuck on a roof we may have gone a bit stir crazy. Now getting stuck in a bookstore like another tourist once did; that’s something.
We are just impressed that in this era of smartphones and security systems it’s still possible to get locked in by accident.
If you need us we will be hanging out in toy stores on our next vacation.
