The cathedral is already a beautiful view to see and the square adds life to the surrounding. Yes, there are a lot of tourists but you'll still be able to take pictures of the iconic church. There are also living statues around which are very interesting. Just walk around and enjoy the view.

You can't miss this as seems all life in Milan focses on the square- architecture and history meets hig-hend shopping for luxury brands, fine dining with affordable pizza and street musicians

The sheer sight of the cathedral is captivating. The gothic architecture stands out through the massive statues throughout. Each wall has its own narration. The street performances around it add vibrance in contrast to the starkness of the structure. Platform in front makes an excellent seating space to catch your breath. I love going there in the evenings everyday!!

Not much to say. It is a square, some well made statues. The best thing about it, the architecturally impressive backdrop of the Duomo.

A beautiful wide piazza surrounded by the art gallery, the Galleria and the Duoma, Milan gathers there for concerts, demonstrations and just to people watch. It's terrific.

The Duomo square is really lovely, the cathedral is awesome and just pity that there is impossible to really enjoy the overall scenery - I was just running away because of terrible pushy guys and their wrist bands, of course a gift for free. Honestly, I made 2 pictures and run away from the square. Duomo is really nice and... More

Like major European cities, the city centre, or Duomo Square is a wonderful gathering place, surrounded by nice shops and plenty of choices for food.

Sunday is family day it seems in Italy and Duomo Square is an area where family, friends and everyone meet on a Sunday. Great atmoshere when we went. Music and singing (but heavy police presence)
