Discover the city

Milan is the biggest city of the North and the second largest city in Italy. It is also the capital city of Lombardy and a huge industrial hub. It does not mean, though, that tourists have nothing to look for here - quite to the contrary, industrial plants are located on the outskirts, while the city…

Leisure time

The first item on your Milan itinerary should be St. Mary's Birth Cathedral - one of the biggest Gothic temples in the world. It is hard not to notice it, chiefly because of nearly 2,000 sculptures adorning its facade. Opera La Scala is one of Italy's, and Europe's, most famous opera scenes.…

While in Milan, you cannot miss deep fried panzerotti doughnuts stuffed with cheese or ham - a victual to be bought at Piazza Duomo. They are made of yeast dough and resemble Polish pierogi, or dumplings. Cannoli are Sicilian cakes, also popular in Milan. They are shaped like little pipes, deep fried, and stuffed with ricotta cheese. It is usually served sweet. Risotto alla milanese - risotto seasoned with saffron, and polenta - a dish of corn groats, as well as widely recognizable Italian cheeses, such as gorgonzola, bel paese, and grana padano are all typical flavours of the city of Milan. Minestrone - a well-known thick vegetable soup or busecca - calf tripe with beans definitely taste different in the capital of Lombardy. Less popular, yet by all means equally tasty, is veal served with germolta sauce, best washed down with wine from the Valtellina region are also worth your while.

In Milan, as in all of Italy, we usually eat at traditional trattorias, the most famous of them being Bagutta on Via Bagutta 14/16. You should be prepared for a service charge, comprising tips and, for instance the mise en place, that is customarily added to every check. During siesta, restaurants usually close down, so if you get the munchies between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., look for bars and fast food joints. Aperitivo, which in Milan means happy hour, is a name for a drink ordered between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. which entitles us to complimentary snacks. So indulge in molto milanese, based on prosecco. The best panzerotti are to be had at Luini bakery on via S. Radegonda 16. Other noteworthy addresses are: Osteria di Porta Cicca (Ripa di Porta Ticinese 51), Solferino (Via Castelfidardo 2), L’Antico Ristorante Boeucc (Piazza Belgioioso 2), Cantina della Vetra (Via Pio IV 3), Don Carlos (Via Alessandro Manzoni 29), and Trussardi alla Scala (Piazza della Scala 5).
