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

The group tour guides are free. They wait for a group to form (at least 10 people I believe), then do the tour.

Yes. You get 15 minutes to take as many photos as you like. There are no restrictions but as long as nag not too big you should be fine. Worth the effort though a great attraction.

Things to do/see near the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (3 Replies)
After our viewing of the Last Supper and a visit of the Church & Museum, are there other interesting places nearby that we could & should think about? -- Interesting shops, other churches, other cultural or architectural landmarks, something more current & of the present, etc.? We will appreciate any pointers you can provide. We hate to be so single-minded about seeing the Last Supper to the point of missing our immediate surroundings!

And of course the Castello Sforzesco and the Parco Sempione are not far away.

close to train station and tourist attractions? (4 Replies)
I will be in Milan for one day in Sept. I am coming from Bern and departing to Florence via train. What area of the city should I stay in to be close the train stations and the tourist attractions (specifically Duomo and Santa Maria delle Grazie)? Is it possible to be centrally located to both? Also, if possible I would prefer to stay away from the business sector b/c I have heard it basically shuts down at night. Thanks!
