Considered one of the city's main landmarks, the mall is home to some of the region's oldest shops, as well as a number of modern, upscale boutiques, including Louis Vuitton and Prada.

  • Beautiful architecture. Great people watching. Good selection of restaurants and reasonable prices. Lots of high end shopping. Easy to get to by tram or Metro. Definitely worth a visit when in Milano.
  • I was craving a good Neapolitan pizza with salami and this place delivered. Also had the lamb with past and raspberry cheesecake. All very delicious. We were worried this might be too touristy because of the location but felt like a small family restaurant. The staff was all very pleasant and attentive. Recommend getting a reservation especially if you want to sit out by the plaza.
