Nice square with lovely statue of Leonardo de Vinci. Full of people every time we went through it, but places to sit, and also to get to La Scala.

This is a nice place to come and sit a little bit away from the flock of people near Milan Cathedral. There's some shade and a great statue of Leonardo.

So named for the famous La Scala opera house which faces one side of this piazza. It is easily accessible from one of the exits from the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. It is surrounded by other nice buildings some of which date from the 16th century....More

It's a slightly quieter location than on the other side (Duomo) of the galleria. There's plenty of seating and a drinking water fountain here. It's right in front of La Scalla opera house.

Even if you do not see an Opera at La Scala, you must visit the square and behold one of the most famous Opera Houses in the world! Everyone should be able to say "yes, I have been to La Scala!" Great place for people...More

A good place to sit and breathe away from the busier Duomo square. Lots of stone benches and free wifi. Still busy and a nice atmosphere.

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
