Owner description: This busy and vibrant city square features the gothic cathedral, one of the largest in Europe.

I always amazed by European Cathedrals. This was also impressive one. However, the main reason that I visited this square, is one of my friends who lives in China, frequently visits here to shop!
I liked the inside of the cathedral but outside, the facade of the chatedral is more impressive. Better place to take a photo is at the edge of the square.
At the main entrance, there is sculpture of Jesus who were torturing by a solder. There is some story, if you touch this sculpture, good luck will come over to you. The Jesus' leg is really shiny because of people's touch!


I also liked the mall street but could not dare to buy!

Makes a difference at Christmas and full of people. Don't forget Napoleon street - unfortunately I left my Ferrari at home.

The Piazza del Duomo is the beating heart of Milan for better and for worse.

To start with the former, the Piazza is where all the hot sights in Milan are found: obviously, the Duomo itself; the many museums; the historical Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II; and endless fashion shops and outlets -- the Piazza combines the historical Milan with the ultra-modern fashionista capital that it is.

On the negative side, however, the Piazza has become overcrowded with the usual tourist scams. A quick Google search will reveal many of these, but as always when travelling a polite nod or simply ignoring these people will do the trick.

Enjoy it!

It just feels that it's an extension of the cathedral. It's ver nice an large, full of people trying to shove things in your face to buy, especially birds foods. I totally ignored them and walked on my way with my family. Be careful of pickpocketing as it really gets crowded somtimes. Beware of suspecious looking people lurking around you.

A crowdy place, a very wide square! At December there is an open market with italian products (food, wines, etc) from all around Italy. At Saturday, after 15:00 you cannot walk from people!
