The eye sees spaces that aren't there thanks to Bramante's outstanding planning and fresco. The church is open for visitors thanks to a volunteer organization at specific times only. Check opening times beforehand because it's well worth a visit.

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

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
