Top ways to experience Piazza del Duomo
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.

The Duomo is spectacular by day or night, but is so massive that it's hard to get a decent photo of it if you're too close. What's really fun is to watch the would-be influencers striking their poses and then give it a try yourself.

This piazza is very large and takes a while to just walk round it but it’s worth it
The square is massive but so are the number of people in it
Of course it’s a bit of a tourist trap for food and drink but if you just wander down a few back streets you can find some great little restaurants at reasonable prices

It’s basically a can’t miss if in Milan

The Piazza Duomo is a must see in Milan. If you are a history buff it’s better to book a tour. Check out the stunning detail and carvings on the Duomo.

Not quite Napoleon,s drawing room of Europe as there are no cafes or rest On the Piazza,but for such a large public pedestrianised area it must come a close second.Whilst Rome is consistently pilloried for rubbish on its street, the Milanese Council are doing a grand job of public space cleanliness with literally thousands of visitors, seven days a week

Simply stunning the pictures don’t do it justice…there was live music, the Sunday seemed a lot busier than normal. Get there early and it was quiet or on a weekday!

The piazza was fenced off for a concert so I didn'tget to see it as I might have hoped. Lots of interesting buildings around the outside and a bustling place to spend a few moments taking in the scene.
