What a place..if I only had money. Truely wonderful. Went early around 7 am. When no one else was there ,took awesome photos. A delightful experience.
Beautiful and amazing architecture. I would say most people don't need more than 30 minutes here to take pictures and appreciate the architecture. Most of the stores are the typical brand names (LV, Prada, Gucci, etc.). They even have a Gucci Cafe! Unless you're going to ball out on the brand name goods or eat at a meal here, you can make your way to the Duomo which is right outside.
if you come with your wife be sure that your wallet is full :), there you can find the famous Italian designers of Gucci, Stefanel, Tod,Pucci, Filpucci, I liked the historical construction method, as I know that the building is up to 200 years ago
Beautiful architecture. Take it easy! Have a glass of wine (or two) at a place that pleases you and enjoy the Italian 'dolce far niente'.

It was a amazing sight!!! The top was Gothic and the bottom modern. Be ready to spend money if you are willing to shop here.
