Tips and tricks in Milan

Tips and tricks in Milan

  • Be aware, that Milan is a city of contrast – there are splendid buildings that represent everything that you think about Milan, and then there are ugly leftovers from the war.
  • You have to visit Brera - the real old town of Milan. With it's magnificent small streets, design shops, and Pinacoteca di Brera museum, it is a must.

  • Of course, there would be no visit to Milan without visiting Duomo, with it's stunning views from the rooftop (just remember that you need to get up early to get up high – otherwise standing in line will be your reality)

  • One of the most spectacular views of Duomo is from across the way at the Museo del Novecento top floor. Most memorable view I had in Milan.

  • Parco Sempione – beautiful.

  • On your way to Pavè and Flower Burger, there will be Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli.

  • Bio c’ Bon – if you, like me, are looking for organic food everywhere you go.

  • If you want espresso, ask for caffè. If you are looking for something longer but still strong – ask for caffè lungo. Macchiato – espresso with tiny bit of milk foam. These three are the most popular among the locals. And never ask for cappuccino after 12:00.

  • Be careful crossing the street – even the police sometimes choose to “not see” the zebra. Checked.

  • Remember – restaurants work from 12:00‒15:00 (+/‒) and from 19.00‒23.00. In the meanwhile, it’s siesta time.
