CiaoMilano .:. Milano. Corso Vittorio Emanuele II
 
Corso Vittorio Emanuele is a wide street connecting Piazza Duomo to Piazza San Babila. During the day, because it is traffic-free and has porticoes lined with shops - particularly clothing and accessory boutiques - it is the ideal place for shopping and window shopping. Post-war reconstruction has provided for a series of shop-lined small covered galleries branching from the side of the Corso.
In the middle, between Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Corso Europa, these galleries surround the tiny old church of San Vito al Pasquirolo (whose newly built adjoining cultural centre is a brilliant example of how to blot the architectural landscape).
In the evening the Corso comes alive with the densest concentration of cinemas in the entire city; here a number of bars and snackbars remain open until late into the night and are crowded with cinema-goers. Corso Vittorio Emanuele is always milling with a motley crowd of Milanese and foreigners, old and young, who come not only to buy, but also to display new and diverse fashions in dress and behavior.

Corso Vittorio Emanuele

HOW TO GET THERE. At both ends of the Corso, that is both in Piazza Duomo and in Piazza San Babila, there are subway stations. It only depends whether you prefer to walk towards or away from the Duomo.
