Hi, my name is Giorgia (@giorgia_piz) and I am 22 years old. I am from Italy, currently living in Milan and studying Fashion Management at Domus Academy.
My favourite spot in Milan is Marchesi 1824 in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. I usually order a croissant, honey, chocolate or cream, it depends on the day, and a cappuccino. Typical Italian, am I not? I don’t really like salty breakfast, I always opt for something sweet.
As my university is close to the Navigli area, when I have lunch break my classmates and I go to Temakinho. I love their poke bowls and also I am a big fan of sushi. Light and healthy, also they are very quick to serve because I don’t have much time from a class to another.
I always find myself visiting museums and galleries like Museo del 900 or Pinacoteca di Brera. There are numerous fashion and art exhibitions at any given time in this city. I keep my eye on a Facebook page called ‘The Colors of Milano’, you can find a lot of information there. Plus top tip: every Tuesday of the first week of each month, museums and galleries are free to visit.
Milano is special at every time of the day, although always crowded with tourists, especially if you are around the Duomo area. If you visit Milan, you must know that evening equals Aperitivo time. At 6 or 7 pmish, I would find myself drinking Aperol Spritz with my friends in Terrazza Duomo 21 or Terrazza Aperol - the offical Aperol spot.
The best ‘chilling spot’ in Milan is at the park. I love walking through Parco Sempione when it’s a sunny day outside and you can breathe in the fresh air. It’s also a good spot for picnics.
I would definitely suggest Aero Gravity. It’s basically a flight experience inside a wind tunnel. Before entering, the instructor will explain to you the position to hold during the flight and he/she will accompany you throughout it to guarantee complete safety. It’s definitely something you should try if you haven’t yet!
I would suggest Navigli or Corso Buenos Aires because they are very central, close to touristic attractions and also to nightlife.
I would recommend visiting during Winter or Springtime, because during Summer the city is very hot and it’s more enjoyable to go to a maritime city instead. However, during Winter and especially during Christmas time the city is magical, with the Christmas market and the Christmas tree in Piazza Duomo, or the lights on the streets. It is also not that cold and it doesn’t really get snowy in Milan. Nevertheless, the Spring season is also a good time to travel to Milan, you can enjoy walking in the park and seeing the flowers blooming, the city paints itself in different shades.
All of these I would say. There are different options and places to visit depending on your needs. The city is big and there are plenty of attractions and things to do for kids, families, friends or couples. Milan is well connected through public transportation and is not expensive to use buses, metros or trams.
