Take the time and rummage through thousands of items. On the tables of the peddlers and between them you will also find quite a few wonderful street food booths. The atmosphere here is pleasant and inviting, especially in the morning and afternoon.
Also, in the surrounding area, we will mention that it is one of the most fashionable areas in Milan. You will find a wide range of cafes, restaurants and ice cream parlors. Alongside them will be clubs, art galleries, fashion shops, design and cheap second-hand shops. Enjoy!
TipsTry to arrive early in the morning, before it gets crowded and before the good finds will be gone.
Park in a legitimate parking lot, because cars that park on the street get towed or get very big fines.
