It is hard not to pass by this magnificent statue if you go near the Duomo. I wish that there were places to sit. Impressive, especially the way it sits alone in the middle of the Duomo Piazza.

Beautiful monument but the pigeons spoil it ! Nearly stand on them there’s so many! However the equestrian statue is worth a look. Bustling area with lots of people and traders selling selfie sticks which are a bit annoying!

Sitting at an outdoor table at Coffeejoint12oz (where you get a good-sized cappuccino for €2.50) and watching the world go by looking at this impressive monument. Nice way to fill in time on a glorious spring day while wife shops

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
