"Piazza della Scala" Piazza della Scala Tip by antistar

Piazza della Scala, Milan: 7 reviews and 16 photos

On the other side of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele from the Piazzo Duomo is the Piazza della Scala. This is much smaller than the cathedral square, but hosts two more of Milan's great buildings, the recently restored and world famous La Scala opera house, and the Palazzo Marino, which is now Milan's town hall. It's a pleasant, traffic free square that would look fantastic in many a city and town across Europe, but next to the amazing Piazza Duomo it seems a little tame in comparison!

The centre of the Piazza contains a statue of Leonardo Da Vinci, which is surrounded by benches and water fountains which appear to be supply drinkable water (at least the locals seem to think so).

Directions: Walk through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele from the Piazza Duomo.
