You get a great view of the cathedral from here but when it gets into the early evening you are surrounded by men trying to either tie bracelets on your arm or give you seed for the pidgeons then hassling you for money - the usual scams beggars etc..also be aware of pickpockets. You can also sit in the square... More

Such a beautiful square, it's a shame that there are beggars, people firing toys in the sky for sale, people charging to take photos (etc). I'm sure pickpockets must be around so just be careful if you do go for a walk here. Such a lovely square otherwise.

A place where tourists and milanese inhabitants find together. A lot of people during the day and the night that causes a nice ambience (as long as you like people). It's a perfect place to observe passants and other people. The bars and restaurants unfortunately are overpriced. I payed 6€ for a 33cl Coke !!

Ok, As Squares go, this one is ok as flanked by great architecture and of course the magnificent Duomo itself. However, as seems to be the case now in most of Italy's tourist spots , you need to avoid the scammers ( pigeon feed and bracelets here) . Also, I know Milan is a big but loud music from nearby...

Filled with restaurants, cafes, gelaterias and bakeries, all offering good food but at a price! All they offer on their menus can be found in almost any other café and restaurant but obviously the one thing they may have that others don't is the view of the Duomo. In summer it is heaving with people and the pigeons take full... More

A busy location because of the surrounding architecture, especially the magnificent Duomo--take the rooftop tour; it's worth it.

It is a perfect place for closing a date. Near the statue of the square and during the date it is a perfect place to rest and take photos with Duomo view.
