My wallet was almost stolen by a middle eastern looking guy. We noticed lots of people bumping us. The place is always full even on a weekday because it is a tourist destination. Keep your belongings safe.

Not the most impressive thing I've seen in my travels but still lovely enough and worth taking a stroll through if you're in the neighborhood. High end brand names and pricey restaurants. Enjoyed a nice enough meal with my daughter there. Can't really expect cheap...More

This of course is a must do in Milan. Loved the Marble and the cleanliness. Restaurants in the arcade expensive. We walked through turned right and came across several bistros. Had a great lunch plus Aperol Sprits for a more reasonable price.

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
