Piazza Del Duomo

Really fun to visit at night! The lights on the Duomo are beautiful. There are many pigeons during the day that will fly into your arm if you have food . A fun thing for kids!

Simply stunning, the Duomo is worth seeing if you're ever visiting Milan. The architecture is breathtaking and the surroundings are just as wonderful.

The cathedral dominates this large square. The surrounding buildings are impressive with shops and restaurants dotted around the square. A lot of tourists (and pigeons) in the square. Beautiful area.

This is a lovely square in front of the cathedral, though there is a lot of security around at present. But watch out for the pigeons - the square is overrun by these dirty creatures, who literally skim past your head. Horrendous!

The piazza was lovely first thing in the morning before all the pesky hawkers showed up. By the time we left one had to be actively rude to people trying to force "stuff" on you.

A must-see location and all, a great photo spot but riddled with beggars and often aggressive scammers. The square is filled with fearless pigeons who will sit on your shoulder and are good for a fun picture. Typically the scammer will place popcorn kernels in your hand to attract them and then demand money so be careful. Also the bracelet... More

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.
