Our lunch at this restaurant was our first in the week we spent in Italy. We found a crowded place near the Duomo and opted to eat there. Boy were we wrong. The service was very slow and arrogant and the food bland at best....More

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

expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
