Via Privata Adelchi, 5, 20131 Milano MI, Italy
Birrificio Lambrate is a well-kept secret in Milan, a city that generally prefers bitter cocktails to beer. The microbrewery opened its second gastropub just outside the city center last year. It’s already much loved for its free happy-hour...
Milan, Metropolitan City of Milan, Italy
We finally found it! Officine Del Gelato Milano; a modern, absolutely delicious gelato parlor. They had us coming back (three times in one day) until we had tried every flavor—including every kind of gelato popsicle. It was a guilt-free treat and...
Via Giovanni Boccaccio, 9, 20123 Milano MI, Italy
As a connoisseur of all things sweet, I was drawn to Shockolat's cioccolata calda or hot chocolate a mere three hours after arriving in Milan. Rich, creamy, and thick, it is hands down the best hot chocolate I have ever had. In fact, it is so...
Via Santa Radegonda, 16, 20121 Milano MI, Italy

One of the most amazing aspects of Italian life is the investment in fresh food, and the twice-weekly markets, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, offer up an unimaginable bounty of seasonal produce (as well as meat, cheese, fish, and household goods)....
Viale Vittorio Veneto, 30, 20124 Milano MI, Italy
At "The Lair of the Wolf" you can eat and sing like an authentic old Italian living in the Alps. When you walk into La Tana del Lupo, you quite literally feel as if you are entering into an old cabin high in the Italian mountains. The doors are...
Via Giovanni Omboni, 20129 Milano MI, Italy
Piazza Sempione, 20154 Milano MI, Italy
Parco Sempione is Milan's biggest park and it has everything- cute caffès, picturesque setting, a medieval castle, a modern museum, a pond and charming foot bridges. If the sun is shining, this is the perfect place for a morning or afternoon walk,...
