MILAN+ DIARY

TRAVEL / ITALY

June , 2014 

 

Milan has always been a favorite! This time around though, we really got to see a much different side of this city. Aside from tourist landmarks, we got some local insider scoop on new venues and areas we had no clue even existed, thats what made this visit extra fun and interesting.

 

Milan is much bigger and happening than what the average person might think, it could even take more than two weeks to get a slight idea of its areas. Brera was one area that truly spoke to us, we could have easily hanged out here every single day without a problem! Loved its pedestrian streets that have a line up of great cafés, bars, restaurants and always prove be lively and charming. Here's to great dinners that ended up in piano bars singing to classic italian songs!

Navigli is an area that we hadn't visited before and surprised us with its beautiful canals during the day and with its heavy yet fun crowds at night. We recommend Rita for aperitivo, a DJ spins on the patio and it is great fun with great music. Corso Como was also a favorite! High-end stores and restaurants that set tables on the street for a nice meal outdoors! Very nice for dinner.

We liked walking all around whenever we had the opportunity and that's what brought us to stumble upon quirky streets and lovely spots, especially around Porta Venezia. Highly encourage anyone to get lost and enjoy what you come across with: it can range from an amazing small cafe to a great vintage store. Feel free to roam and discover. 

 

For aperitivo (because this is where it originated and it instantly becomes a must!) theres all sorts of great places for every taste and preference. From having a fabulous drink at the bar at Hotel Diana, Gold, or the rooftop at La Rinascente to walking around Porta Venezia or Naviglio Grande and entering a small cozy place, or even head to La Vineria at Porta Genova- doesn't disappoint! But whatever you end up choosing make sure it matches your mood, that way its a good time guaranteed. 

 

Of course we also had to do the obvious: gelato by the Duomo, a picnic at Parco Sempione and really just strolling around the city center. The Duomo is never a drag, this landmark still to this day has been one of our favorites, beautiful in every aspect and I still take the time to analyze its incredible details.

 

Our time was limited and we still had so much left to see, but we can't wait to be back and learn some more of the exciting things Milan has to offer!
