Worth knowing

Tradition says that if a person spins around three times with a heel on the testicles of the bull from Turin's coat of arms this will bring good luck. However, this practice has caused damage to the mosaic and a hole developed on the place of the bull's genitals, so we recommend you do not try it.


Visitor comments

  • "Probably one of the most beautiful places in Milan after the Duomo. Go there! It's just unbelievable!" - Trip Advisor
  • "This is an amazing piece of architecture that houses some of the greatest fashionistas! Built at the end of the 1800s its worth a visit. Its sits on the edge of the Piazza del Duomo ("Cathedral Square"). There are lots of affordable cafes for espresso or gelato ;-)" - Trip Advisor
  • "The architecture is stunning! The shops are mainly high-end boutiques and there are some nice cafes. We love to walk through this on the way back from the Duomo. It is picturesque and great for resting after a long walk." - Trip Advisor
