The sculptures are great and its in front of Galleria Vitorio Emanuel. You can sit and enjoy in the view. Too much migrants trying yo sell you something and they wont stop. Everything else is great

We stopped at this famous Leandro da Vinci statue on our way to Duomo di MIlano. It is a smallish square where this statue is in the middle of it. Busy place with tourists. Worth stopping by.

An interesting monument, it's not a must see but you'll probably notice it as you walk around the centre of the city.

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
