Milan is about Piazza del Duomo, one of the major landmarks in the city. The setting is rectangular, with a vast area about 183,000 square feet. The piazza is by far the foremost tourist attraction of the city. In the centre of the square, the statue of the first king of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II stands impressively.
What had charmed me about the main plaza is not because of the fact it is the main shopping streets, but the magnificent architectures of the piazza and Milan Duomo. The structure of the piazza consists of an octagonal space topped with a glass dome. The arcade contains restaurants, cafes and bars (some of them are the oldest in town) and high-end brands such as Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton…
I would advise you to be careful of the street vendors offering birdseed for feeding the pigeons. It is a way to steal while you’re distracted. Another favourite trick is to ask you to break a large bill. The bill they give you in return is usually counterfeit, but by the time you realise, they’re already gone with your money. Or, even offering help to take photos, but run away with your camera.
City of Milan is about lifestyle and fashion. Despite of being one of the most ancient cities in Europe, Milan remains the centre for high-end fashion, all about fashion designers, supermodels and international paparazzi.
