After taking a picture with Duomo as a background, walk along Vittorio Emanuele Avenue to San Babila Square, charming for those who love architecture because it is bounded by important buildings dating back to the first half of the twentieth century.
Discover the chic side of Milan walking towards Montenapoleone Road and the Quadrilateral of Fashion: you’ll see the elegant buildings and windows of luxury shops and boutiques as you follow these streets.
