This is one of the most crowded spots in Milan. Either visit first thing in the AM or late in the PM. Worth the visit - the view is stunning. Just choose your time wisely.

Great for building watching and people watching! Watch out for petty theft- people asking you to take photos for them is often used as a scheme to lure you into a pickpocket situation. But the vibe in general was pleasant and the beauty of the architecture undeniable!

It was lovely to just walk around, shop a bit, sightsee. Very romantic setting. Countless restaurants and coffee shops to choose from. From the fancy to normal takeout. There's something here for everyone.

There was a lot going on in this area, so it was good just to sit and soak up the atmosphere and the going ons within the square. There are a lot of people trying to sell things and they get annoying as they won't take no for an answer

I loved the feel and ambience of Milan from this lovely piazza. It is busy with people, but not overwhelming or crazy like San Marco in Venice. So many shops, geleterias, cafes, and shopping surrounding the square.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
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.
