Many people say that except for Duomo there is nothing to see in Milan. And I always fight to prove the contrary. For me this city is full of suprises, beautiful places, lovely bars and vivid memories. This is my city and I want my close friends to fall in love with it as much as I once did.
When I come back to Milan my first day is always the same: I go for the same route over and over again to reconstruct the memories like a puzzle. I start with Corso Porta Romana, the street that brings directly to Duomo. In Duomo I always spend a couple of hours and I go for a lunch in Fresco & Cimmino followed by the most tasty gelato in the world in Cioccolati Italiani (and yes, 30 minutes queue is worth it). I always take Bianco Avorio and Pistacchio… 3 years, but nothing’s changed :) I would always sit on one of the benches in Piazza della Scala and listen to some live Italian music (there is always somebody playing and singing, trust me).
After that I always walk back though Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and I may stop for some cappuccino and desert (or better no desert after ice-cream, right?) at Gucci. Then I continue towards Castello Sforzesco strolling along via Dante and I walk through the castle to cross the park. I may decide to lie down and sunbathe on the grass or just go straight away to my favorite place. Already from the park I can see the target – zona isola crowned with the Unicredit skyscraper. It was built just two years ago and for me it’s the most beautiful place in Milan. A small square under the Unicredit HQ with fountains, lights, bars and music. Just the perfect place to finish the day. My choice is usually an aperetivo at La Feltrinelli RED with a spritz and an amazing view…
