If you're spending the day in Piazza Duomo don't pass by the recently inaugurated "temple of taste in the heart of Milan". Spanning four floors in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, Il Mercato del Duomo is a product of sheer architectural ingenuity designed in collaboration with architect Michele De Lucchi. Stepping through its doors, stop to admire the impressive bronze sculpture of a centuries-old olive tree dangling above; a symbol of Italy's gastronomic roots. After an espresso in the historic Motta Caffè Bar, head upstairs to Il Mercato's rendition of an urban street market showcasing the finest of Made in Italy. Temptations abound on every floor, including the seasonal cuisine at Bistrot Milano Duomo and the classic aperitivo overlooking Piazza Duomo at Terrazza Aperol.
