Milan: what to do?If you’re visiting Milan for the first time, you might feel overwhelmed with so much to see and to enjoy. Where to eat in Milan? What to do at night? What are the shopping secret spots in Milan? I wrote this guy to help you feeling like an Italian, without the stereotypes. From the City Life district with the new skyscrapers and The Mall to Gas Aulenti square, from Navigli to Brera, from the Castle to the Duomo.

Milan weather?Weather in Milan is not an issue: our tips go from summer to winter, with the sun or with the rain. Enjoy the city’s pools during summer or ice skating during wintertime.

How do you get to Milan?By plane at Malpensa, Linate, or Orio al Serio airports or at the Central Station, you’ll find all info on how to discover the city without a car, even with the help of the exclusive Expo 2015 Milan metro map.

Events in Milan?Even when Milan is full of events like the Milan Fashion Week or the Milan Furniture Fair, or Milano Film Festival, you can still enjoy a hidden Milan, far from the spotlights and the movida. Or, enjoy the Milan to drink, a famous pay-off of the 80s which underlines how Milan has always been a social city. There are so many insider tips for the kind of Milan you want to discover. Milan by night is even more beautiful: visit one of the seven spots I found and enjoy feeling like a local.

What are the best restaurants in Milan? With so much choice, you really risk to miss what’s typical and post-modern at the same time. That’s why I chose 7 of them where you will hardly find any tourist. Discovering Milan like a local is an opportunity you can’t miss. Tasting typical food: from the yellow saffron risotto to pizza. Do you know that peperoni in Italian means peppers? What you might be looking for is a “pizza al salame”. And then, sushi bars, fashion restaurants, pan fried pork cutler, that we call cotoletta alla milanese.
