The area
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.

This nice Door built in 1790 on project of Piermarini, it’s on the line of Spanish Walls.
Going back to the time and going towards city center, the oldest Oriental Door was on the Medieval Walls few steps from San Babila’s square

It’s a nice walking in Milan. As well, near by, there’s a park very nice. And not so far, the Monumentale Cemetery.

Porto Venezia is the historical gateways to Milan. One of several gateways.

This was easy to get to as we walked up and down the shopping street of Corso Buenos Aires several times.

The neo classical buildings are very photogenic.

The nearby public garden is worth a look as well.

Prominent City Gate building on the busy Corso Venezia. Not the most spectacular bujilding in Milan, but nevertheless has its place in history and architectural style. Watch for it as you zoom past on your scooter.....
