The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

I walked on via Dante several times during my visit to Milan in late December 2019 and early January 2020. Via Dante is a pedestrian street with many stores, cafes and restaurants. I just used Via Dante to walk between Castello Sforzesco and Piazza del Duomo. The weather was cold so maybe it is much better during the summer.

Via Dante, a large and popular shopping street that is somewhat reminiscent of the Antwerp Meir. It is really overflowing here and at some shops there are long lines of people queuing outside because only a limited number of visitors are allowed in due to the Covid pandemic.

One of the most beautiful streets in Milan, a wide pedestrian area filled with shops and great restaurants.
Connecting Duomo part of the city with the Castelo Sforzesco.

Wide pedestrian shopping street with lots of outdoor restaurants under tents. In the afternoon most of the street is in the shade making it a pleasant walk in the summer heat. Walking this street is probably fastest way to get from Sforza to Duomo.

This is a nice pedestrian street here in Milano. Connecting the Castello Sforzesco and the Piazza Cordusio. For me the nicest walking / shopping street here in the city center. Lots of shops and Restaurants. Ok, many shops are chains, but it has a charming character and is best enjoyed when you're not in a rush (enough visitors are), so take your time.

It's a nice little stroll down to the Duomo. Be sure to stop by the excellent "Signorvino" on Via Dante 13/15 for a glass of Prosecco (or a bottle of wine).

Even though visited by many, it doesn't feel overcrowded, due to the width of the street.

A popular street with many shops and restaurants. It is always very crowded so you should be careful while walking here.

Via Dante offers you lots of things to buy, cool restaurants, gelato places and always a few street performers that entertain people 🇮🇹🍻🥂👍
It's prety expensive - as you see, I paid 12 eur for ice cream and a coffe - but so is all the Milan 🌁
You can go for a walk in Via Dante but don't expect to much 😉

It is pleasant to stroll on this street and the restaurants with their outsize outdoor seating area sure look tempting but the restaurants here are on the pricey side. Afterall you are paying for the privilege of people watching.
