You got into a different world. Much less crowded and you fins yourself in the middle ages. The houses here around are something to look at. It is a nice place.

Beautiful square, adjacent to the Duomo square, but much less crowded. Filled with nice restaurants and shops. Very historic and beautiful architecture. Worth checking out.

A narrow little square where you can take a breath from the crowded Duomo or Galleria that are nearby. We were here in the morning, so there were not too many places open, there is a small souvenir shop there.

It's nice to break away from the crowd nearby areas and get in this little square. It was half under restoration and not too much info available.

Not so crowded as the nearby Piazza del Duomo, this little square was the heart of the city in the medieval times. At the time, there were six entry points to the square, each connected to a different trade. Today, it is pretty quiet place...More

A small piazza right near the Duomo. Less than a 5 minute walk from the Duomo is this tiny piazza where I felt transposed back to Italy 800 years earlier. There is an old town hall there dating from 1233, my book told me, nearby...More

This looks an interesting square when walking by, and it does have some nice buildings and statues, but what makes it quirky is a nice restaurant at one end of the square and Macdonalds at the other!

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
