Most of the people just walk past this magnificent church while shopping in Corso Vittorio Emanuelle II. The church has really amazing huge dome built under strong influence of Pantheon in Rome. Do not miss to see its grandness.

Quick stop for drink and tiramisu. Service slow and then they brought the wrong drinks. Toilets are awful. Do not stop here.

This basilica is not that old by Milan standards only being constructed in 1847. It has been built in a neoclassical style and is very beautiful inside. It does't have the over the top gaudy decorations you see in some churches especially from the renaissance...More

Outstanding food and service. Home style cooking in a laid back location at the hart of the action. What won my vote was the staff hospitality that makes you feel like a regular.

The Basilica of San Carlo Al Corso was the work of architect Carlo amati and finished in 1847. It has a Neoclassic design. What is nice is the fresco of the cupola over the main altar.

Best spot to take a short break in between shopping sessions. View by a small lively plazza, just next to the basilica romana minor, a place where you can enter and calm dawn for a few minutes...after that, you can have an instant refresh at...More

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
