Just beside Piazza Duomo and nearby Piazza alla Scala, is a small square named Piazza San Fedele. I have always been fascinated by this place because in Milan there are not so many little squares like this and also because even if it is situated in the very center of the city it is always very peaceful, maybe because it’s quite small.
It is not so famous even if there is a statue of Alessandro Manzoni and a nice Church which gives the name to the square.
If you are around this area for shopping or for a tour I recommend you come here for a nice break. I like to come here with an ice cream or with a snack (perhaps eating one wonderful panzerotto from Luini (check the Luini article) which you can by just a few steps away from the square) and rest for a while, just people spotting or reading a book.
