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 is the small square between the 16 column Colonne di San Lorenzo and Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore. In the centre of the square is a statue of the Roman Emperor Constantine. There are bench seat to sit down on and relax.

With stunning architecture and tucked out of the tourist shuffle, this quiet square was a beautiful place for an afternoon drink. There is a lovely cafe in the centre of the square, and a few, like Cafe Zebedia, around the corner where you can sip an Aperol Spritz in some quiet.

This place is some kind of a park now. Many years ago there was an urban area with its own (often criminal) history.

...but it is a bit confusing. Technically all maps show the location of Piazza della Vetra as being behind the church, Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore.

It is a beat up park, where the kids play on the grass and the dogs and birds do their business.

The Roman columns opposite the church date from the Imperial era and were moved here from their former location. It's a nice stroll and a good place to hang out and people watch while you are taking a break from your walking tour. Good gelato nearby at Grom.
