The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

A really beautiful place to sit amongst the small crowd and enjoy our lunch. BEWARE THE PIGEONS!! They are many & cheeky. Really saddened by the young man who thought it acceptable to kick one of the pigeons VERY HARD; so hard that the poor bird was smashed into the wall of the nearby building and, in all probability is now dead. This was seen by a few who found it very distressing.

A few days ago we passed through this small square again, located in the center of Milan.
Unfortunately it is still used by cars.
Some noteworthy buildings surround it and it is dominated by the baroque façade of the large church of Sant'Alessandro, in which I was baptized way back in 1947,
One of the buildings houses the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures of the State University and its students crowd the square and its premises.
