Great view, restaurants, and shops!

It's like being back on time with the view, but having all the modern shops and restaurants that you like. Very good!

This is one of the most popular place it is at intersection of a lot of place so you will be here either you want it or not and it is nice but it's nothing special for a tourist so I'd say average.

As I mentioned with the Duomo, the square is steps from the best shopping in the world. The square itself is filled at all hours and is great for people watching. The only downside is all the African men trying to pitch crap at you like bracelets, selfie sticks and other chuchkas. A place not to be missed though. It's... More

Great views of the Duomo from the Piazza. But it is always busy. Early morning is the quietest, but in the late afternoon the sun on the Duomo makes it appear to glow. Lots of pigeons...and people trying to sell you bird food! Yuk! Just keep your wits about you, as you would in any crowded square. They are beggars... More

The Piazza is a vast space with great distant views of the west facade of the Cathedral as well as of the entrance to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle.

Wow, what a hopping place! Crowded with tourists during the day, at night the plaza becomes a giant party, filled with bands, dancers, food, drink, and revellers. Go, enjoy, or even just watch.

Don't miss the chance of visiting this cathedral. Absolutely beautiful!. The line to get in is pretty long so its best to come a little earlier.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
