For me the best place near Duomo where to take icecream. Not most near, not the cheapest one, but definitely the best taste :)

Prices clearly based on the location. Food was bland however the chicken and mushroom pasta wasn't awful. Drinks extortionate.

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

expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
