So you obediently whip out your Excel spreadsheet planner for your upcoming trip and start typing names of the usual suspects- The Duomo of Milan, St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Amalfi, and you’re starting to see a smorgasbord of Italian words like chiesa, basilica, duomo, and cattedrale, and your brain is slowly.
