The Teatro degli Arcimboldi hosted an amazing concert event with Tim Reynolds and Dave Matthews visiting. The venue was spectacular, not a bad seat in the house. The staff were friendly and courteous. I would definitely recommend seeing a show or concert here.

I went with my cousin to see Gianluca Grignani. It was very convenient to get to and parking was surprisingly easy. It as a bit weird to sit down at a rock concert (!) but we were really comfortable. Nice big venue and good organisation.

Staying in Bicocca

Neighbourhood Profile
Although Bicocca is a peripheral district, many visitors will find it appealing. The district is enveloped by the immense Parco Nord (North Park), one of the largest parks in Europe. Inside is the theater Arcimboldi, one of the most important contemporary theaters where concerts and shows are organized. In the same area, there is the University of Milan Bicocca, whose distinct architecture rivals a movie set. Coffee shops, a multiplex and a shopping center are in the campus, along with the Fondazione Hangar Bicocca, one of the most famous museums of Contemporary Art.
