You got into a different world. Much less crowded and you fins yourself in the middle ages. The houses here around are something to look at. It is a nice place.

A narrow little square where you can take a breath from the crowded Duomo or Galleria that are nearby. We were here in the morning, so there were not too many places open, there is a small souvenir shop there.

Piazza Mercanti is a nice little square, only a few minutes from the central square where the Milan cathedral is located. This small square does not have the "life" the Duomo square possesses, but it hosts a number of impressive old buildings, or palaces that...More

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
