During our visit to Milan and because of the proximity of our hotel to this square , we have been to AlDuomo square on daily basis. The place itself is lovely and you can sit and relax for one or two hours and you will not get bored. The cathedral itself is beautiful and elegant. You can also visit the... More

This is a great place to sit and watch people walk by. The only downfall is the men that try to sell you something. Nice to sit on the steps and have a sandwich. Enjoyed walking around and visiting the Duomo and shops.

Wandered around the Duomo square for the day. Lots to see and do in this area. As you can imagine, the Duomo itself is very impressive. If you go to Milan you have to go here.

This is a huge square that includes both the Milan Cathedral and the Vittorio Emanuelle Gallery, both beautiful in its own way. The Piazza itself is impressive, most days visites bu huge crowds which include tourists and local families, so the ambiance is vibrant and fun.

Just like the pictures you've seen, not as beautiful as Piazza San Marco and not really any place to sit and people watch. You'll have to go into the Galleria Emmanuel Vittoria to do that.

Every time when I come to Milan, I visit this place. When I saw this square for the first time, I was so amazed because the square was full of people of different nationalities.They took photos with pigeons, met with their friends, talked and laughed.But the main thing was the Duomo. I have never seen such a beautiful cathedral. As... More

The black people aka Africans will ambush you and tie the band on your wrist and demanded money from you claiming you bought it from him. These useless band costs like euro10-50.

The Duomo in Milan is breathtaking. The square is impressive and there are a lot of restaurants and designer shops (great for window shopping only if you are on a budget) nearby. There are always a ton of people in the square and pigeons everywhere. Beware of panhandlers and pickpockets. As I was standing there admiring the beauty of the... More

The square is impressive, with the Duomo and the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery, but way too crowded at all times: you can't really stay and admire such beauties, since you would be distracted by someone trying to sell you something or just pushing you by mistake. The square is surrounded by shops and restaurants (even a McDonald).
