I understand that everyone needs to make a living, but the greatness of surrounding architecture was significantly more difficult to enjoy because of a number of men "giving" some bracelets (even though I told them many times that I will not buy anything) and then asking for money. I understand that they would not be there if nobody would give... More

The square has lots going on in it from the Duomo, to the shopping, restaurants and people. You can get a great view of the Duomo, by very expensive clothing and jewelery and eat expensive meals but you can also get some reasonable cost meals. Duomo is welll worth a visit and is free and roof top tour is a... More

We visited the piazza at 8pm last night, and it was very busy with tourists. The site felt safe, there was a police presence to one side of the square. The views of the Cathedral are impressive and you are able to wander round the outside at your leisure. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity of... More

Various acts (musical or dance) played in the square and although it was busy it was not uncomfortable of intimidating. You can relax and hang out whilst watching the others enjoy the area

From every direction something amazing and the great Duomo Cathedral and wonderful statues of lions. If you can dodge the harassers with bird feed and friendship bracelets take a second and really enjoy this heart of Milano! Going early is a plus if you want some quiet and almost people less photos.

It is a must in this city. You have to go to the Duomo, so it is necessary to come here. Personally, I hate pigeons and people offering wrist bands when you don't want... And that's what you're going to find here.

Just this place is amazing enough. Must-see. Lots of craps sellers in the place but that's everywhere in tourist places.... Walking around gives you the overall grandeur of the place. Enjoyable.

I visited Duomo Square in admittedly the peak of the tourist season - both in respects of date and time. The cathedral itself is beautiful, as are the surrounding buildings and statues. The main issue however were the men giving out 'free' wristbands/bracelets to tourists. Despite her best efforts to escape, one friend actually got a band forcibly tied on... More

Of all the cathedrals from the various Italian cities I've visited during my stay, Duomo di Milan was the last one I visited. As I only had 1 day to spend in Milan, the beautiful facade of the cathedral did not disappoint. Its location at what seems to be the heart of the city prevents aimless wanderers, like myself, from... More
