Corso Vittorio Emanuele II Full review
avatarpicture janeortico THE BEST REVIEW
Great Shopping Place : This pedestrianized street runs from the Duomo to the Paizza San Babila. It is full of high street brand name shops and also cafes. The January sales were still on when we visited so there were bargains to be had at a more reasonable price than the high end fashion houses. The street was always busy with shoppers and buskers.

Away from the city, a fountain with a history: Iconic fountain from the 1600s that is located in the outskirts of the old town.
