Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Milano, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Content: Another one of the best-known Milan landmarks can be found just to the side of the Duomo. The Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II, one of the most luxurious shopping malls in the entire world. Built in the late 19th century, its elegant double arcades connect the Duomo to La Scala, another one of Milan’s starring attractions. It happens to be the oldest active shopping mall in the country and the name brand stores attract everyone to flock inside (even if only to window shop and try to snap that coveted photo). Top tip: go before or by 8 am, or you will have to fight the crowds.

Duomo di Milano

Milano, Duomo di Milano

Content: Duomo: There’s no sight more synonymous with Milan than its stunningly breath taking Duomo, the largest church in Italy which took six centuries to complete. Naturally one of the first things you should do in Milan is stop by here and admire its stunning details up close. The architecture will just blow your mind at the amount of detail you can see one every single part of the Duomo. Morning is THE time to come, before the masses arrive and the crowds take over the square. A climb (or elevator ride) to the top is an absolute must for the best panoramic 360 degree views over the city

Content: This was the one place I knew I wanted to try before we came to Milan. I was so excited and boy did it deliver in every way possible. We went right at opening time and didn’t realize that they have a limited menu for the first two hours, but the wonderful woman said if we could give her 20-30 mins to get set up she would be happy to make our order for us early. I ordered a fancy coffee which was a Moroccan coffee with milk foam, coco powder, cinnamon and hazelnuts (€2), my partner ordered a peach ice tea (€3), we decided to split the rainbow pancakes …. these were straight out of heaven. I cannot recommend these enough, the custard paired with the fresh food and the fluffy as cloud pancakes was just perfection (€6), I ordered the hangover open toast, which is soft bread covered in avocado spread, fresh grilled chicken, delicious crunchy bacon and a fried egg (€11), my partner ordered a closed BLT and he said it was wonderful (€8) Address: Piazza della Trivulziana, 5, 20126 Milano MI, Italy

Milano, Gelato Fatto Con Amore

Content: Fatto con Amore: this adorable family run gelato shop is a must! The guy was so friendly and gave us basically a sample of every kind of gelato they had. He was wonderful with recommendations on how to pair them as well. We had 6 scoops (4 in a cup and 2 in cone) for €6.80 – My partner had Greek yogurt, lemon, raspberry and peach , while I also had the Greek yogurt and peach. If I have to recommend one…. GET THE PEACH….WOW!! Address: Corso Magenta, 30, 20121 Milano MI, Italy

Sforzesco Castle

City, Sforzesco Castle

Built in the 15th century, this dashing landmark has worn countless hats over the years, acting as a defence fortress, private residence, military barracks, was once the seat of the Duke of Milan and now, home to various museums and exhibitions. Even if you don’t pay to visit the inside, the castle courtyards are a scenic treat to explore, and totally free. Address: Piazza Castello

Sempione Park

Milano, Sempione Park

Content: Right behind the Sforza Castle, you will find the Parco Sempione. It’s the largest park in the city center of Milan and a local’s favorite. If you are looking for a little respite from the hectic tourist madness, or a place to find some shade to escape the summer heat, then this is where you’ll find it. I recommend to bring some food and drinks for a picnic!
