This square has as many pigeons as people. The view of the Duomo is gorgeous. It is an awesome place to people watch.

The Piazza is a mandatory place to go, wherever place you stand is perfect for pictures. At Piazza there is always some kind of street art that you can enjoy for free. Around it there is a good variety of stores, bars and cafes.

We walked up from the metro and other first sight we saw was the cathedral and it was absolutely breathtaking! We didn't go inside the cathedral however we did walk up the terraces on top of the cathedral which was a fantastic experience. I would recommend taking the lift as it is a lot of stairs!

There are many places in our travels that match the grandeur and vibrancy of being in a meeting place such as the Piazza. Time Square in NYC, Las Ramblas in Barcelona, Piazza Navona and Spanish Steps in Rome, and many others. They are all unique and exciting in their own ways. Piazza Duomo gave us a sense that we were... More

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.
