high price and no quality food is no t the mirror of the price. we advice people do not eat on turistic areas. Look for restaurants outside that areas. Good food and less expensive.

Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon

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
