In Porta Venezia, the verdant garden of HClub at the Hotel Sheraton Diana Majestic has been a stalwart of the fashion crowd’s summer drinking scene for a number of years now, and deservedly so. Featuring magnolias, cyclamens and adult trees, the garden is re-planted seasonally and is a great place in which to sample the salvers of vegetarian sushi and queen olives.

It's best to book online. Plan to stay: Less than 1 hour

The Poldi Pezzoli Museum opened in 1881, two years after the death of its founder, the nobleman Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli (Milan 1822-1879), one of the most enlightened art collectors of his days. His is one of the first and most successful examples of historicism in Europe. Each room was inspired by a style from the past, and hosted an exceptional selection of antique art and decorative arts. Arms, glass, clocks, porcelain, carpets and tapestries, furniture and works in precious metals, paintings and sculptures from the 14th to the 19th century, all intermingled to create an extraordinary and ensemble donated ‘for public use and benefit’. During the Second World War, in1943, the bombs destroyed most of the house’s interior decoration. Today, alongside the surviving historic rooms that have been restored to evoke the collector’s house, new rooms and exhibits, such as the Armory designed by Arnaldo Pomodoro, can be visited.

The Boschi Di Stefano Museum-Home at number 15, Via Giorgio Jan, has been open to the public since February 2003. In these premises – once inhabited by the married couple Antonio Boschi (1896-1988) and Marieda Di Stefano (1901-1968) – about three-hundred pieces are exhibited selected from over two thousand works, donated to the City of Milan in 1974. The collection – which comprises paintings, sculptures and drawings – is an extraordinary testimony to the history of Twentieth Century Italian art from the first decade to the end of the Sixties.

Teatro alla Scala is not only a symbol of Milan but one of the best places to see opera in the world. The theater was renovated in 2004, with a significant improvement on the sound quality. I recommend a guided tour of the Theatre Museum to look behind the scenes of one of the most beautiful Opera Houses in the world, and if you love Opera or Ballet, you shouldn't miss one of the great performances taking place here. Tips : Even if you don't see a show, visit the museum - which features costumes, instruments, and portraits of great opera singers - and you'll still get a peek in the auditorium. Note that the last entrance to the museum is 12 pm daily. Book well in advance, as shows sell out quickly. Check the website before visiting the museum to make sure that there are no rehearsals going on. Plan to stay: 2-3 hours

The first Milano Centrale station opened in 1864 in the area now occupied by the Piazza della Repubblica, south of the modern station.[1] It was designed by French architect Louis-Jules Bouchot (1817–1907) and its architectural style was reminiscent of Parisian buildings of that period. The station was designed to replace Porta Tosa station (opened in 1846 as the terminus of the line to Treviglio and eventually Venice) and Porta Nuova station (opened in 1850 as the second terminus on the line to Monza, which was eventually extended to Chiasso) and was interconnected with all lines, either existing or under construction, surrounding Milan. It remained in operation until 30 June 1931, when the current station was opened. There is now no trace of the old station left. King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy laid the cornerstone of the new station on April 28, 1906, before a blueprint for the station had even been chosen. The last, real, contest for its construction was won in 1912 by architect Ulisse Stacchini, whose design was modeled after Union Station in Washington, DC, and the construction of the new station began. Due to the Italian economic crisis during World War I, construction proceeded very slowly, and the project, rather simple at the beginning, kept changing and became more and more complex and majestic. This happened especially when Benito Mussolini became Prime Minister, and wanted the station to represent the power of the Fascist regime. The major changes were the new platform types and the introduction of the great steel canopies by Alberto Fava; 341 m (1,119 ft) long and covering an area of 66,500 square metres (716,000 sq ft). Construction resumed in earnest in 1925 and on July 1, 1931, the station was officially opened in the presence of Foreign Minister Galeazzo Ciano. Its façade is 200 metres (660 ft) wide and its vault is 72 metres (236 ft) high, a record when it was built. It has 24 platforms. Each day about 330,000 passengers use the station, totaling about 120 million per year. The station has no definite architectural style, but is a blend of many different styles, especially Liberty and Art Deco, but not limited to those. It is adorned with numerous sculptures. “The ‘incongruous envelope of stone’ (Attilio Pracchi) of this gigantic and monumental building dominates Piazza Duca d’Aosta.” [2] On September 25, 2006, officials announced a €100 million project, already in progress, to refurbish the station. Of the total cost, €20 million has been allocated to restore "certain areas of high artistic value" while the remaining €80 million will be used for more general improvements to the station to make it more functional with the current railway services. The project includes moving the ticket office and installing new elevators and escalators for increased accessibility.[

In 1456 Francesco Sforza decided to build a huge hospital complex for the poor called Ospedale Maggiore Ca' Granda in order to increase his fame beyond his wealthier citizens. The complex not only included a hospital, but also shops and workshops, and for this reason was called 'Ca’ Granda' which means 'Big House.' After a renovation to fix damages the building suffered during World War II, the University of Milan moved here, and today the buildings and grounds make for an interesting guided visit. Tips : Take a tour around the beautiful courtyards. Do not miss the so called "Crociera," the cross-shaped room where patients were hospitalized. This room is now used as a library by students. To reach the University by metro, take the Yellow Line (Line 3) and alight at Missori. From here it is a 10-minute walk. One of my favourite parks, "Giardini della Guastalla," is nearby.

Located southeast of Milan, not far from Linate Airport, Idroscalo is an artificial lake, often referred to as 'the sea of Milan.' Originally constructed in the 1920s as an airport for seaplanes, today Idroscalo offers all sorts of water fun, from kayaking to water skiing, as well as a variety of biking and running paths, a climbing wall, and more. It's a great place for a picnic followed by a nice walk around the lake. Tips : Water sports and other sports competitions, like speedboat racing, are held here frequently. In summer, special events and concerts are organized here. To get to the park, take bus 73 from San Babila Square in the city center. Unfortunately, swimming is forbidden, as the lake is considered unsafe because of frequent water vortexes. Plan to stay: 2-3 hours

This beautiful little garden opened in 1939 and is located close to Ospedale Maggiore, the Court of Milan and Università Statale Ca’ Granda. Commissioned in 1555 by Countess Paola Ludovica Torelli della Guastalla, the green areas are well preserved, and feature a playground and a dedicated dog area. The Baroque building, 'Pond Lake,' is a particularly perfect example of Giardini della Guastalla's splendors. Tips : Take Via Francesco Sforza after you exit the park, and enjoy a pleasant walk through Duomo square. The garden is located in a posh area of Milan, and you'll notice beautiful buildings on all sides of the park. From Via Francesco Sforza, it's easy to find University Ca’ Granda and admire this architectural jewel. Plan to stay: Less than 1 hour

Located near Sforza Castle, Parco Sempione is the largest green area in Milan. Situated on the site of an ancient Ducal-era park and hunting ground, called 'Barcho,' the English-landscaped park features rich flora, jogging trails, a playground and courts for volleyball and basketball. Many activities and events also take place here throughout the year, thanks to the nearby Civic Arena. Tips : I like walking through the center of the park towards the pond and the locally-named "Little Mermaid's bridge". Do not miss La Triennale, a venue for contemporary exhibitions and events located inside the Palace of Art. A free wifi network covers the whole park. Branca Tower is located inside the park, as are the Civic Aquarium and a public library. The triumphal Arch of Peace acts as a sort of virtual gate into Sempione Street, where RAI, Italy's public broadcasting company, was historically located. Plan to stay: 2-3 hours

Commonly known as 'Giardini Pubblici' or 'Giardini di Porta Venezia,' this park was later renamed in memory of the famous journalist, Indro Montanelli, in 2002. Whatever you call it, this is the oldest park in the city center, and is popular with the local Milanese, who can be seen walking here during their lunch breaks and on weekends. The park is home to the Civic Museum of Natural History — the largest of its kind in Italy, and one of the most important in Europe — plus the planetarium 'Ulrico Hoepli,' which also shares the 'largest in Italy' distinction. Tips : A plant-and-flower fair called “Orticola” is held here in May, and is a nice opportunity to learn more about gardening. To get here by metro, take the red line (Line 1) and alight at Palestro Station. A bronze sculpture dedicated to journalist Indro Montanelli was inaugurated here in 2006. I like walking in the nearby gardens of Villa Reale, a peaceful escape from city chaos. Plan to stay: 1-2 hours

Parco Nord, the 'park for everyone,' covers more than 600 hectares and six different districts in Milan's northern outskirts. Established at the end of the 1960s in a down-trodden industrial area, today it is a popular place for jogging, cycling, strolling and birdwatching. Since there is a plethora of wildlife, from ducks and turtles to rabbits and foxes to spot, it's also popular with photographers. Tips : To get here by metro, take the Lilac line (Line 5) and get off at Bignami-Parco Nord station. A small open-air theater here often hosts free events and musical performances. Made with waste from an old steel factory's blast furnace, “La Montagnetta” is an artificial green hill that is not to be missed. Plan to stay: 2-3 hours

Also called 'Parco Formentano,' Parco Marinai d'Italia was founded in the 1960s on the former site of a historic fruit-and-vegetable market called 'Verziere.' In addition to beautiful landscaping and promenades, the park also features some impressive architecture. In particular, the beautiful Palazzina Liberty — once the meeting point for people visiting the market — hosts several concerts and special events. Tips : Starting at the park, I like taking a walk to Palazzo di Ghiaccio, a beautiful Art Nouveau building on Via Piranesi 14. The park features a nice playground, that's also accessible for children with disabilities. The “Water House” distributes free sparkling and still water to promote eco-friendly habits. There are special fenced-in dog areas, so you can sit on a bench while your pet plays. If you're feeling playful, check out the park's volleyball and bocce courts. The Verziere market was moved to Via Lombroso, and you can still visit it there. Plan to stay: Less than 1 hour

Not far from Linate Airport, Parco Forlanini offers plenty of space for peaceful walks. Its centerpiece, Lake Salesina, is a favorite habitat of small birds and fish, and there are several ancient farmhouses to explore, including Cascina Cavriano and Cascina S. Ambrogio. The Lambro River, which runs along one side of the park, is another scenic touch, and in 2002, the park opened 'Bosco dei Faggi,' a forest of beech trees in honor of the 118 victims of a 2001 plane crash at Linate. Tips : Take bus 73 from the city center and walk under the flyover to reach the park. “Centro Sportivo Saini,” a well-known sports center, is located nearby. In 2008, the park opened a municipal doghouse to shelter homeless dogs and cats. In the center of the wood is a beautiful sculpture,“Dolore Infinito,” which was donated by Swedish artist Christer Bording. Plan to stay: 1-2 hours

Before it was renamed for Pope John Paul II, Parco Giovanni Paolo II went by 'Parco delle Basiliche' because of its proximity to two famous basilicas: San Lorenzo and Sant’Eustorgio. Formerly a seedy area, the park underwent a major renovation in 2002, and today it is a tranquil escape from the noisy Corso di Porta Ticinese. Thanks to its beautiful gardens and many benches, it is also a popular lunch spot for Milanese who work or attend school nearby. Tips : Check the opening times, as the park closes at night. Do not miss the opportunity to visit both churches and enjoy Colonne di San Lorenzo, just outside Basilica San Lorenzo. Navigli district is not far from here — a good area to stroll around. Before or after your visit the park, take a walk in Corso di Porta Ticinese, where you can find trendy shops and bars. Plan to stay: 1-2 hours

In medieval times, Milan was a network of criss-crossing canals, most of which have since been covered over. The Navigli District takes its name from the remaining canals, Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavese, and offers some interesting cultural sights like the S.Maria delle Grazie al Naviglio and the Vicolo dei Lavandai - a corner where women once washed clothing.

Milan's majestic Cathedral is the symbol of the city, and its Gothic architecture screams "romance", especially if you take the trip up to the Duomo terraces, where you'll be treated to close-up glimpses of the church's 135 impressive spires as well as magnificent city views. Tips : On the roof, look out for the Madonnina, a gilded figure of Mary on the tallest spire. It was the highest point in Milan until the Pirelli skyscraper was built in 1958. Try Sunset among the Spires, a one-hour guided tour of the terraces (English tours: Friday, 6 pm; Italian tours: Friday and Saturday, 7 pm). Book in advance. There are two options, lift or stairs, for reaching the Duomo. Even if you choose the lift however, you may have to still climb a few stairs! Plan to stay: 1-2 hours

Try Sunset among the Spires, a one-hour guided tour of the terraces (English tours: Friday, 6 pm; Italian tours: Friday and Saturday, 7 pm). Book in advance. There are two options, lift or stairs, for reaching the Duomo. Even if you choose the lift however, you may have to still climb a few stairs! Plan to stay: 1-2 hours
This unique monastic complex is located just south of Milan in a little village surrounded by the green. It is one of the city's most important Cistercian monasteries and a place well-beloved by Milanese. Once inside, you can admire its beautiful paintings and frescos, created by famous artists, and be dazzled by the amazing XIV century original cloisters. The monastery also produces its own liqueurs, honey and health products, which are sold in the shop located in the ancient refectory and make for great and unique souvenirs! Tips : The fastest way to reach the monastery is by car. Otherwise, take Metro Line 3 (Yellow Line) and alight at Corvetto, then take bus #77 to Abbazia di Chiaravalle. Guided tours are organized mainly on Sundays. Check the website for the opening hours. Look out for the commemorative stone showing a stork holding a pastoral staff in its beak. A beautiful floral carpet ("Infiorata") is prepared by the monks with the help of parishioners for the feast of Corpus Christi each year. Plan to stay: 1-2 hours

Arena Civica was commissioned by Napoleon and built using recycled materials from the fortifications of Sforza Castle. Many important events and shows have been held here throughout the centuries, including the end of the first 'Giro d’Italia' (the Italian bicycle race), and it is still used to host sporting events and concerts today. Inter Football Club even trained here for many years before moving to San Siro Stadium! Tips : Check the website for open hours before visiting. Don’t miss the Triumphal Gate with its four monolithic columns and Loggia Reale with its fine columns and porch. The Arena is located in Parco Sempione, very close to Sforza Castle, so you can plan to visit both on the same day. To get here by metro, take the Green Line (Line 2), alight at Moscova and have a nice walk in Corso Garibaldi before reaching the Arena (a 10-minute walk away). Plan to stay: Less than 1 hour

During the renovation of the La Scala theatre in 2002, this building was inaugurated to ensure that La Scala Opera performances continued. Its huge, innovative two-level auditorium can host an audience of almost 2,400, and its acoustics are unbeatable. In fact, the sound here is so amazing that after La Scala reopened, Arcimboldi continued to be used to host concerts and musicals, and is easily considered the city's second Opera House. Tips : Book tickets for performances online in advance. Hangar Bicocca — a space which hosts contemporary art, exhibitions by international artists and free activities for kids — is a short distance away. To get here, take bus #87 from the Central Railway Station and alight at Via Chiese (Hangar Bicocca). Plan to stay: Less than 1 hour

This award-winning building complex (the seat of the Lombard Regional Council) features a 161-metre high skyscraper with 39 floors, which until recently made it the highest building in Milan. A great place for a birds-eye view of the city, on its top you'll also see a copy of the famous Virgin Mary statue 'Madonnina,' which was placed here in 2010 to protect all Milanese from its position up-high. Tips : Admission is free and you don’t need to book in advance. "Il Forno di Via Pola," a nearby bakery, is well worth a visit. Plan to stay: 1-2 hours

This panoramic tower is 108 meters high and was erected in only two months in 1933 (when it was known as Torre Littoria). A quick lift ride takes you up to the panoramic terrace in less than a minute, and from here you can enjoy wonderful views over the city. You can even see the Alps and Apennines on a clear day! Tips : The tower is located in Parco Sempione, the biggest city park in Milan. There is a small entrance fee. Take the metro Red Line (Line 1) or Green Line (Line 2) and alight at Cadorna FNM-Triennale to get to the tower. Just Cavalli Cafe (owned by fashion designer Roberto Cavalli) is located at the bottom of the tower. Plan to stay: Less than 1 hour

This beautiful church and sanctuary was one of the earliest examples of Renaissance architecture in Milan and is one of my favorite sacred sights. Hidden in Corso Italia — which can easily be reached by bus — the church features a painting of the Virgin Mary, believed to have miraculous powers. It is tradition for newly married brides to visit and offer their wedding bouquet to the Virgin, in the hope of a happy and long-lasting marriage. Tips : It is only a 15-minute walk from Duomo Square. To reach the church, enter the main door and go beyond the courtyard. The small church of San Celso is just beside the sanctuary, but is normally closed to the public. Parco delle Basiliche, also known as Parco Giovanni Paolo II, is only a short walk from here.

Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is one of the most popular shopping streets in the city centre, featuring clothes and accessories stores, as well as shoe shops. This is a pedestrian street, making it the ideal shopping destination, with nice bars scattered along its sides and al fresco tables providing welcome break opportunities. You'll find all the big chains here, including Diesel, Max Mara, Mango, Luisa Spagnoli, Replay, H&M, Benetton, Intimissimi, Zara, Bershka, Sephora and many more. For something more upscale, admire the smart shoes on display at Vergelio and the trendy jewels at Morellato. The massive Mondadori Megastore features a cafe, a wonderful reading corner, and a wide selection of books in several languages. Good for Must SeeLuxury TravelerShopping FanaticTrendsetter Tips A multiplex cinema, The Space Odeon, is located on Via Santa Radegonda. The flagship of La Rinascente, the famous department store, is located along this street, close to the Cathedral. Don't miss Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the famous covered shopping mall with smart stores, coffee bars and restaurants. During Christmas holidays, this street is decorated with lights creating a magical atmosphere. Take Via Santa Radegonda and stop at Luini to taste one of their famous panzerotti. I like the traditional ones with the tomato and mozzarella cheese filling. Plan to stay: 1-2 hours

This trendy shopping street starts at Colonne di San Lorenzo - the famous square with romanic columns - and continues up through Piazza S. Eustorgio to Piazza XXIV Maggio, the virtual gate to the Navigli District. At first glance it may look like a minimalist street with not much to see, but as you start walking, you'll soon notice the variety of shops that make Ticinese so interesting.

Loosely translated as "Washerwoman Alley," Il Vicolo dei Lavandai is a small corner of Alzaia Naviglio Grande famous for its old wash-house where ladies used to wash their clothes up until the 1950s. Today the area is more artsy, and offers several restaurants where you can try traditional dishes from Milanese or Lombard cuisine, like Milanese risotto with saffron, pumpkin and parmesan stuffed pasta or polenta. Tips : Check out the nearby courtyard where you'll find an art gallery that offers free entry to its exhibitions. Visit in the morning to avoid the crowds.
