  • The piazza surrounding the statue is without a doubt the filthiest plaza I have ever seen in Europe, due to the many hundreds of pigeons surrounding it and eating from the tourists feeding them. Also the plaza is full of people pushing trinkets and services of all types for as much as they can get from tourists. For example, there was one who's gimmick was to get pigeons to cover the arms and head of a tourist and then sell them a photo of it. One of the most disgusting things ever.
  • It's a really good place to meet up with friends or a place to rendezvous if you get seperated, plus it has a really good view of piazza duomo and the cathedral..
  • Very nice beautiful place where you can enjoy the view of the Duomo di Milano, there's just one thing! Be careful from the Africans and Egyptians that try to trick you into taking seeds to feed the pigeons. They will stick their hand out DO NOT take anything from them. They might say it's free to get you to take it by tricking you. Just ignore them and enjoy the view. Besides if you feed the pigeons they might crap on you. If they still linger and bother you, you can always approach one of the police officers.
  • This is a very beautiful place with a lot to see and do. There is A LOT of people here.
  • Very beautiful church from outside and especially from the inside. The sound and acoustic of the organ music is just amazing.
