for those who don't know Milan, Corso Como, the area shown in the picture above, is one of the movida locations of Milan. There you can also find one of Italy's most famous and exclusive discos, Hollywood.
This means that the area around this skyscraper is not just a financial district, desert on night time. It is indeed one of the hearts of Milan, at any hour and day.

Actually this is corso Garibaldi (pic taken at the intersection with via della Moscova, in largo La Foppa), the prosecution of corso Como

Actually there aren't completed modern areas, but you can visit the beautiful city centre, which is totally full of shops (somes are really huge!) and restaurant, ecc... You can start from The Castello Sforzesco and doing Via Dante, Piazza Cordusio, Via Mercanti until Piazza DUOMO. From the place, hearth of the city you can choose between Via torino, with a lot of younger shop. If you want you can go straight until San Lorenzo and Ticinese's Area (a beatiful zone) and you'll arrive at the dock. The most attended zone is Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Piazza San Babila, behind the dome. Here's there are tens of tens huge shops. From Piazza San Babila star the High Fashion District : via montenapoleone and via della spiga. Back from the dome, you can entry in the Gallery and arrive to La Scala's theathre and Marino's Palace.

for the evening and dinner you have to go in Brera's zone or in Dock's zone (here there's a pedestrian island along the canals and a lot of locals). For reach brera from la Scala you have to follow Via Giuseppe Verdi and you'll arrive at Via Brera. Here's start another pedestrian island, the most nice in Milan: Via Brera, Via Madonnina, Via Fiori Chiari. Here on the evening there are a lot of seers, fortune tellers and street performers.

For the night Corso Como is the hearth of Milan's Movida. It is just in front of the majorc construction sites: you'll see the Garibaldi District here. In corso como thera are a lot of bar and discos

Thanks for the information. I could enjoy Milano and lucky the days were great, clear, sunny etc... I did take some pics around the town and many from Il Duomo. As soon as I can I will post the pics for share the great views from this point.

Have a nice day!
