An American tourist had an unexpected sleepover on the spired roof of Milan’s historic Duomo cathedral this week. He was apparently using the bathroom during security’s final pass, and was subsequently locked in for the night.
Police said the 23 yr. old visitor found himself locked inside the spectacular landmark cathedral when he went to leave. He decided not to create alarm and spent the night on the spired rooftop, reporting himself to authorities when they reopened on Tuesday morning.
A good choice considering the views and fresh air – as opposed to being inside a huge creepy dark church.
The tourist, from Illinois, did not face any charges and authorities declined to identify him.
The caretakers of Milan’s Duomo have requested additional police surveillance.
