Nice environment with authentic shops and bars. Nothing more than that, you can walk from the Piazza del Duomo to the opera building

This stunning gallery is beautifully ornate, with wonderful frescoes and arches as well as a good view on Da Vinci's statue (facing La Scala) and the Duomo of Milan. Walk through and admire the art and high-end boutiques, and don't forget to dig your heel...More

It’s just breathtaking. The ceiling, the floor you just don’t know where to look. We didn’t even bother looking in any of the shops!

Crowded but just not to be missed. Evening strolls from La Scala after opera was nice. respite from boiling sun. Visit the stores during twice yearly sales. Dutti is friendly, others not. Small pizzeria on side alley is great.

Located just off Duomo Square, this is a really fascinating area, full of shops and eating places and of course people. Loved the architecture highli ch hted by a high dome ceiling and beautiful tiled floor in atrong colours and patterns. A must do.

This beautiful building is very impressive... Go early to spin on the "bull with no balls" for good luck and avoid the crowds of tourists and instagrammers who inevitably show up... There is no concept of queuing in Italy so be prepared to walk briskly...More

We stumbled upon this place while walking around Malon, and didn’t even realize where we were until we recognize the ceiling. It is very beautiful but not as large as I thought it would be, worth walking through.

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

I was there on a Sunday in February and all the stores were still open after 9 pm. I left early Monday morning so can't be of great help in this regard.
