About Visit Piazza del Duomo Square

The fabulous Piazza del Duomo is the main city square and the heart of Milan. Named after the Duomo church or the Milan Cathedral that dominates the square with its sheer architectural brillance, this plaza is the most visited place in Milan. Spread over 183,000 sq ft this rectangular plaza is adorned with the most important buildings of Milan, and perhaps Italy in general. It is also a hub of key commercial activities of the city. Some other buildings to be admired here are the Royal Palace and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II arcade. At this plaza also stands the historical Arengario - the town hall, and the place where Mussolini gave his speeches. The first buildings of the Piazza date back to the 14th century, and the area has gradually been developing ever since - including the Duomo, that took about 6 centuries to complete. A visit to this centre of Italy's history, culture and art is an absolute must-visit for anyone. Stroll its streets and find yourself awe-struck by the sheer brilliance of it all.

Historical Context: The first buildings of the Piazza date back to the 14th century, and the area has gradually been developing ever since - including the Duomo, that took about 6 centuries to complete. The chief architect who gave the piazza its current form is Giuseppe Mengoni, who designed during the second half of the 19th century.
