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.

Timing is everything
Jul 2021
We walked through this Piazza multiple times a day and it was always different. On one occasion there was a parade of sorts through the area and it brought the whole Piazza to life

Big Square in front of the Cathedral
Jul 2020
It is a big square in the center of Milan in front of the big Cathedral. When you visit the cathedral, you probabely pass this big square. Nearby, there is also the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the Rinascente store and the Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale). As I was a few days after the end of strong Covid restrictions in spring, the place was quite empty and I had a wonderful view. Unfortunetely, souvenier sellers were quite aggressive, as they had not much opportunities to sell anything. There is also placed the Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy.

Majestic but crowded
May 2021 • Solo
The Piazza del Duomo is a huge square with the church of the same name in front. Beautiful for pictures and a must see stop, but very crowded and filled with pidgeons.

central Duomo square
Oct 2020
It is also extremely busy on the central Duomo square, mainly due to a peaceful protest action by hundreds of event employees who have been without income for months due to the corona crisis. Everyone is dressed in black and at some point they all hit their metal material box at the same time. Impressive, but it probably won't make much of a difference.

Beyond this it is a very beautiful square with impressive buildings. Especially visit at night.

Great view
Oct 2020
The view of the front face of the Duomo is incredible. The Piazza was extremely busy and full of people even during the Covid pandemic.
