Once in Milan, you will simply need to decide what to do first. For your convenience, we have prepared an itinerary specifically designed to advise you what is a must do in the city in just one weekend. Assuming you arrive on Friday evening, we recommend that you immediately immerse yourself in the elegant Milanese nightlife. If you love nightclubs we recommend the Just Cavalli and the Old Fashion in the Sempione area, to enjoy fun evenings with international DJ sets. Another event not to be missed is the Tocqueville in the Corso Como area, the local symbol of Milanese nightlife. If you don’t like dancing, don’t miss out on a drink in one of the many lounge bars in the Navigli area. The following day, we advise you to take a tour in the centre and allow yourself to discover its main points of interest; from the beautiful Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, visit the Duomo and take advantage of the visit to its famous spires (ascent on foot 9 euros / 13 euros using the elevator) from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city. Spend time in Brera, then go to the Castello Sforzesco and visit it. Also not to be missed is a tour of the Fashion Quadrilateral, and a jump in La Rinascente for a luxury shop. If you love big fashion brands don’t miss the many shops along Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, Via Torino, Via Dante and Corso Buenos Aires. In the afternoon, take the subway and reach Garibaldi station. From here head towards the Isola neighbourhood and admire the wonderful Vertical Garden and take a walk around. If you have enough time, it is really worth taking the subway and heading towards the Tre Torri district and taking a trip to the Shopping District called CityLife. Towards late afternoon, a visit to the canals for an aperitif in one of the many rooms with a view is mandatory. On Sunday, take advantage of the morning to visit some of the most beautiful museums in Milan; the Pinacoteca di Brera (12 euros full price / 8 euros reduced ticket), the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana (15 euros) and the Cenacolo (28 euros full price including Pinacoteca di Brera). Subsequently, we especially recommend spending the afternoon in nearby Como where you can admire its lake and its beautiful historic villas. Continue reading by clicking the button below>
