Important jewellery, design and furnishing showrooms can also be found here.
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele
A wonderful structure with a glass roof, it offers visitors a unique opportunity to visit its traditional cafes, bars, bookshops and the legendary Prada boutique. It connects the Duomo with the famous opera house, La Scala, and is one of the most prestigious shopping arcades in Italy.
Teatro alla Scala
One of the world's most famous opera houses, owes its name to Santa Maria della Scala, the 1381 church it was built upon. The traditional opening night of the opera season always takes place on 7th December, feast of Sant'Ambrogio, patron saint of Milan.
One of the largest churches in Europe and the symbol of Milan, its construction started in 1386 and ended in the late 19th century. It is made in white Candoglia marble, and characterised by 3400 statues and its fabulous stained-glass windows.
Such a huge monument requires endless attentions and restoring works; scaffolds are to be seen all the time around the Duomo. In Milanese dialect, "fabrica del domm" (Duomo's factory) is an expression used to indicate lenghty and somewhat complicated operations.
