We lived in Milan for 2 years and still each sunday I was going to the Duomo just to have a coffee or 5 minutes of the view. I am complete in love with this building. Go inside, the air is heavier once you are there, maybe because of the large walls or because so much has happened, go around... More

It's great that the Metro station is exactly in the square. As you get there you'll be amazed, looks very beautiful everything

The Duomo is the star of the square and a magnificent presence. Stroll, sip coffee at one of the many cafes and just soak up the culture.

Enjoy the sights, the lights and the buzzy atmosphere of the church and the square and then select a nice bar nearby or restaurant to complete your evening

We spent a Day in Milan and had lunch in a small restaurant facing the Duomo while waiting for the city tour bus. We think the refreshments, while acceptable did no represent value for money - the portion were small and not especially hot.

You cannot do Milan without visiting this church. It is a fantastic meeting place and has very breathtaking views. The Duomo di Milano cathedral on one side, the Galleria on the other, and the Monumento Equestre a Vittorio Emanuele II statue as well. The only negative aspect is that the pesky street peddlers do harrass you some, so be careful... More

Pigeons and people and tourists everywhere, no tree in sight, this is not a good place to be in a hot summer day, take my word for it. I did it and I immediately regretted it. It's nice for a walk at night, but the birds never leave, they are kinda annoying and dirty.

nice but you are almost unable to walk because of people around you who wants to sell things. Do never get any food for birds from other people. This means you will have to pay 20 € for or .... bad story

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.
