I have been client of Marchesi (Santa Maria alla Porta) since ages and I was so curious to step in and have my first experience at the Montenapoleone new store. My husband and I walked in with a giant stroller and our 5 months baby girl asking for a table for lunch. It was really stuck and busy, but the... More

This place looked so inviting with all the pretty windows filled with pastries and sweets, presentation inside was so enticing and always busy, so we decided one morning to go for breakfast. It was quite a let down, the breads/croissants were not at all what we had been used to and the service not so great either. For the price,... More

This is a very traditional sweet shop in Milan, very old and known in the city. When i was young we could not spend a Christmas without its panettone (traditional Christmas sweet from Italy tradition). You cannot miss it when you are in the city center: sweet are displayed in such a nice way! Especially for some occasions, the right... More

Our tour guide pointed out this little gem on our way to see the Last Supper. I made it back and had a croissant ham sandwich, a creamy green bean quiche, a blackberry tart, chocolate pear tart, and a cup of espresso, they are all so tasty and best of all, for less than 13 euro. This is it, a... More

Finally had the best coffee since we started traveling in Europe two weeks ago. The panini and croissant was also good. We went on a Sunday afternoon and there were lots of people. We were greeted by a very nice lady in Prada outfit,yes, it's now owned by Prada. Customer service was great. It was a bit slow due to... More

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.
