Milan: Piazza del Duomo at Xmas
Milan

Piazza del Duomo is the very center of Milan. It is a large square built in mid 19th century and dominated by the Duomo.

The Cathedral itself was started in 1386 under the Visconti Rulers, the marble being transported via the Navigli canals. The large church was almost completed in few decades but the façade was actually finished under Napoleon in the beginning of 19th cenury. The Duomo has 5 naves and hosts more than 3000 statues.

In the 360Photo on the left of Duomo it is clearly visible Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, dressed with Xmas lights.
