Sonia C's City Tips

  • Taxis are white and are widely used in Milan. Catch a taxi from one of the many taxi stands or simply hail one in the street.
  • MilanoCard offers free public transportation, free entry to 20+ museums and discounts for some restaurants and attractions. You can purchase it online.
  • The fastest public transport is the Metro. Both day and multi-day passes are available.
  • There could be an extra charge if you have a drink seated at a table - it is a tradition to enjoy drinks standing at the bar counter.
  • Restaurants often include the service charge, but it is nice to tip if the service warrants it.
  • When ordering a drink, first order at the till, then pay and take your receipt with you to place the formal order with the barman.
  • Milan is the capital of fashion, and you may discover an unwritten dress code in some venues. Rule of thumb: Dress sharp when going out.

    Sonia C Says:

    Located in the very heart of the city, the famed Duomo is one of the largest Gothic churches in Italy. Its highest spire is dominated by a golden statue of the Virgin Mary, affectionately known as the 'Madonnina,' the protector of Milan. The most precious relic on display inside is the True Cross, believed to belong to Jesus when he was crucified. Weather permitting, visit the rooftop to gaze at an amazing view of Milan and its courtyards - a great photo opportunity. To reach the rooftop, you can choose to take the lift or use the stairs. Bear in mind that there are still some stairs to reach the rooftop, even if you chose to take the lift!

    Tips
    • Visiting the Cathedral is free, however a bag check is required by the security guards at the entrance.
    • You cannot enter the Cathedral with big bags and suitcases.
    • The Duomo sometimes holds concerts, which are well worth attending - the organ is one of the world's greatest, and the music schools trained choirboys since the 15th century.
    • Remember to dress appropriately - covered legs and shoulders - when entering the cathedral.

    While the Opera House facade is not that impressive, the luxury interiors are breathtaking. If you like Opera and Ballet, this could also be the ideal occasion to enjoy a performance and test the sound quality of the acoustic system, which was remodeled in 2004. Otherwise, you can glimpse the auditorium from the boxes by taking a tour of the theater's museum, as long as rehearsals are not taking place.

    To the left side of Teatro alla Scala Opera House, you'll find Giuseppe Verdi road, a street lined with antique shops and stores selling professional products for fine arts. Follow this to the pretty neighborhood of Brera, with its narrow streets, cute chops, and tasty restaurants. Via Fiori Chiari, one of the most iconic streets here, is full of good restaurants. Brera is also famous for Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan's main art gallery which houses beautiful paintings of the Lombard and Venetian schools. The most famous of these include Caravaggio's 'Supper at Emmaus', 'The Kiss' by Hayez and 'The Montefeltro Altarpiece' by the Italian Renaissance artist, Piero della Francesca.

    Sforza Castle was built in the XV century by Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan. Today the impressive structure is home to several museums, including the Egyptian museum and the Museum of Ancient Art, which features Michelangelo’s final (and unfinished) sculpture, Rondanini Pietà. After your visit, exit from the rear entrance to find yourself in Sempione park, the biggest green area in Milan. If you have time, continue walking until you reach the Arch of Peace, the triumphal arch and a sort of virtual gate to Sempione Street.

    • You can reach the castle by taking Via Dante, a pedestrian street close to Duomo Square and lined by trendy shops and bars.
    • Along Via Dante, look for “Piccolo Teatro di Milano”, Italy’s first permanent theatre, founded 1947, and now with 3 sections: Theatro Grassi, Teatro Studio and Teatro Strehler.
    • Guided tours are sometimes available of the Crenelated roof, the Ghirlanda underground passages and the Guardroom. Check the museum website under "Culture and Events" for details.
    • A very popular Christmas fair, called “Oh bej! Oh bej!,” is held near the Castle early in December. It sells traditional festive food, decorations, antiques and souvenirs.
    • Each museum has its own admission, or you can purchase a 3-day pass which offers free admission to all Civic Museums.
    • Free admission to all is available on Tues. from 2-5:30pm and after 4:30pm Wed. through Sun.

    Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio is one of the oldest churches in Milan, and second in importance only to the Duomo Cathedral. The Church is dedicated to St Ambrose, bishop of Milan, whose remains lie in a crypt here, together with the bodies of martyrs Gervasio and Protaso. Milanese people are proud of the Ambrose religious rite, which includes a mass celebrated with a slightly different liturgy to the Roman one, and more holiday days during the Ambrosian Carnival.

    Founded in 1973, the Museo della Scienza is dedicated to Italian genius Leonardo da Vinci. It is the largest museum of its kind in Italy and one of the largest in Europe. There are seven departments in the museum: Art & Science, Energy, Communications, Materials, New Frontiers, Transport and a section with interactive labs for children. Don't miss a guided visit onboard the majestic Italian submarine in the transport section - I can still remember when it was driven through the narrow streets of Milan on its way to the museum in 2005.

    This beautiful church, built in the second half of the 15th century, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to da Vinci's 'The Last Supper,' a definite Milanese must-see. The seven chapels located on either side of the church were originally used as burial places for the most important Milanese families, and are also worth exploring. Of these, the Chapel dedicated to the Virgin of Graces is the most interesting - it existed before the church itself.

    Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, which was once one of the most prestigious Benedictine female monasteries in Milan, is often referred to as the city's 'Sistine Chapel' because it hosts some of the most important frescos from the Milanese Renaissance. Visit Bezozzi Chapel to admire astonishing frescos by Bernardini Luini, a famous Italian painter who was clearly influenced by Leonardo da Vinci. Among his works are scenes of the life and martyrdom of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, as well as his last paintings, which were finished posthumously by his sons Aurelio and Giovan Pietro.

I highly recommend a visit to Saint Aquilino's chapel, a mausoleum featuring a third-century fresco, fragments of precious mosaics dating back to the Paleochristian period, and a sarcophagus believed to have been built for the burial of Galla Placidia, daughter of the Roman Emperor Theodosius. The presbytery also hosts a casket containing the remains of Saint Aquilino, and behind the altar there is a small ladder leading to the basement where you can see the foundations of the old church.

    ´Naviglio´ is the name we use to refer to the canal system that runs through Milan. Starting in the 12th century, Navigli were built to connect Milan with Lake Maggiore, Lake Como and the city of Pavia. Unfortunately, as part of a regeneration project, by 1960 most of them were covered, and today only two canals are still open. The area is beautiful however - lively and romantic, buzzing with art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and bars. But remnants of the area's history also remain - while walking through, you'll discover many 'tenements with communal balconies,' typical Milan council houses also called 'case di ringhiera.'

    It may be hard to believe, but Monumental Cemetery is the second most visited place in Milan, after the Cathedral. Also called an 'open-air museum,' the Cimitero Monumentale is an ode to history, art, and ostentation. Founded in 1866, the cemetery is the final resting place of many Milanese elite, most of whom are celebrated in grand style with monuments commissioned from well-known artists like Luca Beltrami, Pietro Cascella, Lucio Fontana, Arturo Martini, Giò Pomodoro, Giò Ponti, Medardo Rosso and many more. Start your visit at the Famedio (the Temple of Fame), a majestic building that contains the tombs of some of the most prestigious citizens of Milan: Luca Beltrami, Anna Kuliscioff, poet Salvatore Quasimodo, Francesco Hayez (painter of 'The Kiss'), composer Arturo Toscanini, poetess Alda Merini, singer and composer Giorgio Gaber, actress Franca Rame, and many more.

    Tips
    • For a unique experience, try to visit during Milan Fashion Week, when international fashion brands flock to the area to showcase their new trends and collections.
    • Although it is tempting here, avoid wearing high heeled shoes since cobblestones in Via della Spiga can make your life difficult.
    • Whether or not you are shopping, enjoy a nice walk around Via della Spiga and try to peek into the charming courtyards.
    • Nearby San Babila Square - with its peculiar, relatively recent fountain and concentration of nice shops and offices - is the favourite meeting point of many Milanese.

    Sonia C Says:

    Located near Sforza Castle and Parco Sempione, La Triennale di Milano is not only a museum but a cultural institution, hosting temporary exhibitions and events that involve design, architecture, urban planning, music, and arts. There are always many things going on at once here!

    • The al fresco tables at La Triennale's Design Cafè are a great place to rest after browsing an exhibition here.
