Piazza Fontana is 2 blocks from the Duomo. Really nothing special in this Piazza but it does have numerous tram and bus stops.

Nice and relaxing small square/park, near the Duomo. Terminus station for many trams going to the east part of the city. Very nice small fountain in the centre of the square.
