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.

Magnificent!

Magnificent square but can obviously get overcrowded and be overpowering. Try to avoid Saturdays! Great for people watching.

It is be simply breathtaking walking up to this church for the first time. Loved it by day and loved it by night. It was quite busy on the Piazza during the day but it is great to see that tourists have returned to Milan.

Its a nice square with a nice view on Duomo and the Galery. Though its very crowded so I wouldnt recommend staying there for too long. You might see some street artists also.

If you like selfies this is your spot. This has to be the most photographed place in Milan. Don't worry If you cant take a great selfie there are photographers just waiting to take your picture and give it to you on the spot. At $3.00 each

Worth the Trip
Jul 2021
Whether you get a ticket to get inside or not, it’s worth the quick trip on the subway from downtown. The area is filled with shopping and restaurants. I highly recommend getting a ticket to tour the inside. Guided and self tours are available. The self tours are more frequent than the guided depending on the language you speak.

Early in the morning
Aug 2021
Visit the plaza early in the morning to have the best impression of it's size and atmosphere. as soon as there are many people it looses a lot of it's value and 'grandeur'.
