Sightseeing tour 4 hrs: Piazza Duomo - Vittorio Emanuele II open gallery. – Sforza castle.
The wide rectangle square of Duomo (the cathedral square) is the real centre of the town. The Gothic cathedral took five centuries to be completed and is the fourth-largest church in the world.
Milan Cathedral is 157 meters long and 40,000 people can fit comfortably within. It has become very popular thanks to its true Gothic style façade and its openwork pinnacles that are punctuated by a grove of spires and topped with statues that overlook the city. The huge building is made of brick faced with marble from the Candoglia quarries, on the Lake Maggiore.
From the Northern arcades it is possible to see the well-known Vittorio Emanuele II open gallery. Your 2nd leg of the tour will be the "Sforzesco" castle, in front of the Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo), at the opposite side of the avenue which joins them. It was the main residence of the Dukes of Milan built starting from 1360.
Today the castle hosts some civic museums and some permanent exhibitions, as a picture gallery with 230 masterpieces of Italian paintings with special attention to the Lombard and Venetian artistic production. Within a stone's throw from there you will be absorbed in the windows-shops of the Milan fashion area, having a look at the most exclusive and elegant streets of the town, going shopping or just drinking a coffee in one of the famous locals situated along Via Monte Napoleone, Via della Spiga and Via Manzoni.
