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.

Incredible library and nice staff but...
May 2018
My first comment is that the staff is really very helpful! I cannot find fault with any of them. The library has an INCREDIBLE amount of books and documents available to consult free of charge. However, there are two things that I find really irritating. One is that this library is in Corso Di Porta Vittoria - slap bang in the middle of town, situated in an old building - however, apart from the facade and the internal garden - which is on the main road - as soon as you walk into the library you wonder what happened to the old building, It's all very run down and ugly and sort of thrown together, absolutely not what you would expect from a library in this location. We went in May and although the temperatures were way higher than what you would normally expect for the season, the one place that should have been cool and comfortable (the reading room- where people were genuinely studying) was sweltering! I cannot say if they have air-conditioning or not, but I certainly hope so because in July it would be unbearable. The second thing that bothered me was the fact that there are so many people "scrounging" the free wi-fi! Now, I don't mean to sound horrible, but it is a library after all, yet the amount of people using the space in the seating areas and chairs and tables placed around the rooms, for Facebook/Youtube and other social networks really surprised me. Why do I complain, you may ask yourself? I'm asking myself that same question, but to me it just seemed really wrong to to be there just to take advantage of the free internet service.

Stands out
Sep 2017 • Couples
In the area of Milan where this Palazzo is located, there are not many buildings of a sort, which only makes this one stand out even more.
