...otherwise you would avoid Expo itself! The "arts and food" exhibition is very well organized and managed. I visited it with friends and kids: everyone was enthusiastic and enjoyed the time spent there (some hours even with small babes)! Unlikely is not much advertised in Milan.

Triennale design museum (free with expo ticket) – excellent, better than the expo. Take the 3EUR audio tour – this is what an audio tour should be, max 1 minute sound bites and well explained

First of all the entrance is free of charge with Expoticket. You need to reserve at least 1,5h to visit everything. The arrangement of the whole exhibition is divided into 3 parts, each very interesting. It is definitely worth visiting!

We got the free entry with the expo ticket, but it's not worth the visit. Unless art and design is your thing. The exposition was unexciting and you couldn't touch anything. At every new part you needed to show your ticket.

I've visited the museum during the Expo 2015. They surprised us with free admission. The museum is fantastic, one of the best of it's kind. It's a must see if you are in Milano.

For lovers of classic Italian design, this place is heaven! Some really unique classic Italian design pieces on show here. Give yourself atleast 90 minutes here.

This extremely ambitious exhibition was one of the highlights of our recent break in Milan. After visiting the Expo site a few days before ( liked the architecture and pavilion buildings but content appalling) I couldn't help but think here was some original thoughts and ideas about Food. Well these images and items are from artists imaginations rather than for... More

Very interesting museum with an emphasis on food, kitchens and obviously design. Lots to keep one occupied. The iPad is worth getting for a commentary on selected items on display. Remember to keep your ticket as it is required for scanning at several points throughout the museum.

We came here expecting to see displays of Italian design. All we saw was 'Arts and Food'. I found it quite interesting, but my partner could only look at so many vessels and utensils, and had hoped for something more wide ranging. None of the staff I spoke to had enough English to answer my question 'Is this all there... More

We came here for the Arts & Foods Exibition. The entrance is free for Expo ticket owners. Differently from Expo 2015, everything present in this pavilion is related to food. Raccomended!

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
