The shopping area around is beautiful and awesome, but... the water fall? Never on... Again, its nothing compared to everything around it. Still had a great time with many tourist areas, and shopping centers.

There's really not much to do there, shopping nearby at the H&M, Diesel is pretty nice the Fontana is not that amazing! Just a great place to meet up and head off to Duomo, or to the Brera district

it seems more a pool than a fountain, but it's nice. Modern italian art just close to metro station named " San Babila ". In a big square, San Babila, surrounded by tons of shops and crowded and jammed streets, you will see this fountain that works as a meeting point for all the people in Milan. so, if you... More

you will no doubt pass close but dont even think of stopping. One thing they cant do in Milan is organize decent fountain 'shows' as they do in dubai or madrid or london...it's not even an attraction.
