The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Nice stroll
Sep 2019 • Family
One of the original main streets of downtown Milan, and a nice place to have a stroll wandering of the architecture.

Corso Magenta
Oct 2018
Corso Magenta will take you to the museum that displays The Last Supper as well as to the castle.

I found it to be an elegant area as I visited it on the walking tour. Fashionable shops, gelatos, bakeries and cafes that nestle among churches and museums.

The main artery of Milan.
Jun 2019
Walking on the Corso Magneta, which is the main artery of Milan, you’re passing several impressive buildings, museums, churches, since this Corso is a quite long street, leading from the business district to Corso Vercelli where the fashion shops are congregating. On Corso Magneta you find the Santa Maria Delle Grazie with Leonardo’s Last Supper. For the history and art lovers, another delight is the Museo Archeologico in the former convent Monastero Maggiore of San Maurizio, where the visitors can enjoy not only the exhibitions but the unique building as well, the charming cloister of the monastery. Have a drink in one of the bars, have a gelato, and visit Parco Sempione, where if you climb up to Torre Blanca, a magic view will be your reward.

Pleasant but not memorable
May 2019 • Couples
We walked from San Maurizio Church to Santa Maria delle Grazie Church along this road. It was pleasant but not memorable, just another street.

Important street
Oct 2017 • Couples
This is the street where you will find the church with Leonardo's Last supper. There are a lot of shops - normal, not the high end brands - restaurants. It is a residential area, with nice 19.th and 20.th century houses.

One of the most iconic streets of Milan, very old and very beautiful.
However, because of its narrow sidewalks it's quite stressful to walk here when it rains because you risk being splashed by passing motorists.

Great area
Aug 2017 • Couples
The elegant street, as well as the whole Magenta district, is a long residential street with number of shops, restaurants and hotels, but mostly characterized by an amazing wealth of the historical, architectural and artistic treasures. The district was structured in the 15th century and it was named to celebrate the French-Sardinian victory over Austrians in Magenta during the Second Italian War of Independence in 1859. It is a great street, relatively quiet and full of charm, not to mention all those important monuments and nice buildings.

Lovely street
May 2017 • Couples
We went up and down this street several times during our four day stay in Milan. It's rather nice and in several sections it is almost very quiet, but in other sections it tends to be very busy, traffic wise, full of cars, trams, and people. There are numerous shops along this street, including restaurants, cafes, cake shops, and importantly fashion shops of all descriptions. We did a lot of window shopping! This is the street you walk on when you want to go to the Santa Maria delle grazie church, where you will see Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper. It is a street you will not forget in a hurry!

Nice street to walk when heading for the Duemo
May 2017 • Solo
My very nice hotel was located on the Corso just next to the Vineyard of da Vincy.
The distance to the Duomo was 15 min. and it is a very nice walk.
The street is a mix of shops, restaurants, hotels and small cafés and some interesting buildings housing museums, EU offices and the City of Milan offices.
There is a lot life, local and touristic and the tram 16 is running on the street as well.
