If you come to Milan, you absolutely must come to see the Duomo and main square (Piazza Duomo) and from there you can walk down Via Torino for shopping, or behind the Duomo to San Babila for other shopping leading to the famous Montenapoleone for luxury shopping. The Scala is right there as well if you walk left if facing... More

Duomo was a magnificent site to see upon embarking from the Metro station stairs. Unfortunately, Easter Mass was held in a side room in from of a red draping. The square itself is sketchy - with lots of men trying to aggressively sell you things, take pictures etc.

Nice central square, always full of tourists. But also full of beggars, scammers and other annoying people who'll try to sell you crap you do not need. So just walk and see it and that's it.

This is where you spend your evenings-seeing the Duomo lit up. Or go in the mornings for coffee. Or to a cafe for lunch. Or to a nearby restaurant for dinner then come to the Duomo Square to see what music or concert or activity is happening. There is always something going on in the Duomo! On Saturdays sometimes an...

This is the unavoidable place to go in Milan to catch the city's spirit. You might not like the bulk of tourist and chaos but it is here where you can get the inner vibes of Milan's life. Last but not least the Cathedaral is absolutely amazing.

My husband and I have visited this square on many occasions and I am always moved at the first sight of the Duomo when we enter this square. We usually take a local tram to close by and then walk through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. The Duomo is externally one of the most spectacular buildings in the world so is... More

Duomo is a impressive building, make sure you go and see it before you leave Milan. The Duomo is very impressive, specially if you take the metro and take one of the exits that get you straight to the Duomo. In my opinion, more impressive and beautiful than the Florence cathedral and La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Make sure you... More

Place with charm, a lot of people walking from different styles and countries. So many pigeon birds flying and walking around, like a movie scene. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED walk there to see it!

A lovely square with lots to see and do, from the shopping arcade to the cathedral (duomo). Plenty of places to eat or have a coffee around the square, Was a bit disappointed by the the number of Africans loitering around the square trying to give you a 'free' bracelet, made it feel a bit unsafe and concerned about the...
