“Pretty but watch out for the Pigeons”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We visited Milan in January 2013 and Duomo square appears to be the central point in Milan. This is a very pretty place with the Cathedral the star attraction, however be careful for the many street traders putting bird food into your hands for the pigeons and then charging you for the privilege.

“The heart and center of Milan”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The Duomo Square is not only defined by its namesake Duomo, but also Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the oldest shopping mall of Italy. Even if someone is for the first time in Duomo Square, she or he can easily find a cultural or shopping activity in Via Torino, Via Mazzini or Via Dante which all lead to Duomo.

“Where you can meet Milan soul”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

A nice piazza, owned by the duomo, with a lot of cafés, shops and restaurants near by. In the cold nights, at the aperitivo time (happy hour), it is really nice to seat by the heaters and ask for a glass of wine (snacks are free!). You are going to pay much more, but it is really delightful just to be there and see people passing by. Beware of the guys who try to give you a kind of bracelet as it was for free, so they will ask for some money afterwards and they can be very pushy. A firm no is enough to keep their distance.

“amazing historical monument”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

take some time to admire the beauty and the majestic presence of the Duomo cathedral, go all around, check the small details, touch the stones, you can't help from thinking the stories these walls could tell.

“Historical Magnificence”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The cathedral, the space, the city, it's all good! There is no better shopping in Europe. The Rinascente store, which has a rooftop restaurant, just across from the cathedral, is fabulous.
