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.

The square is named after the neoclassical fountain designed by Giuseppe Piermarini in the late 18th century with three basins made of pink granite. The two statues of mermaids squatting on dolphins, supporting the largest overlaying basin, are the work of Giuseppe Franchi. It is...More

Piazza Fontana is a nice area, a bit more quiet than the main Duomo square which is about a block or so away. There is a really lovely fountain in the piazza, which is not extravagant, but provides a bit of a distraction and the...More

This is a nice and quiet place to get away from the nearby crowed Duomo square. You can relax here, while admiring the fountain and the surrounding architecture. Otherwise, nothing fabulous and you can give it a miss.

This is a decent square not far from Milan's cathedral. What makes the square somehow unique is the beautiful classical fountain in its middle. Worth going through this square if only for the photo-ops of the fountain and the huge cathedral in its back.
