Top Tips for Visiting Milan
More Than Pizza and Pasta
The food in Milan is unique a sublime. Unlike the regions of Italy to the south, where they favour olive oil and carbs, here you’ll find rich and creamy risottos, plenty of succulent meat, and signature cocktails to pair your meals with.
Despite being a modern metropolis, the business hours can be pretty old-fashioned. Many of the stores will close for lunchtime and will be closed all day on Sundays. Restaurants and bars open quite late as it’s not unusual to eat dinner past 9 pm.
The Green Oasis in A Sea of Concrete
Milan is a vibrant city, but you can find luscious parks that are picture-perfect picnic spots, perfect for the warm sunny climate. Visit any one of the stunning parks in Milan, and you’ll be able to listen to the babbling brooks, birdsongs and see (and smell) the flowers.
