Best Cities for Food Experiences: Milan

The fashion capital

As you probably know from scanning Vogue or keeping up with your favorite models (any Karlie Kloss fans?), Milan is a popular fashion destination because of the high-end fashion weeks that take place every spring and fall.  If you love food and enjoy longin meal avoid the fashion week if you don’t want to be surrounded by thousands of models in the street with bone and flesh and will cut your appetite. Although the spring fashion week occurred in March, there is still an air of grandeur as locals and tourists alike wait expectantly for their favorite designer’s autumn/winter collections.  Here are some recommendations on where to find classic treats/drinks:

  1. Breakfast/Pastries: Pavé
  2. Gelato: Ciacco Gelato
  3. Pizza: Piccola Ischia
  4. Traditional cooking: Trattoria Madonnina
  5. Apertif (happy hour): Da Otto
  6. Sweets/Candies: Marchesi

Another one of those absolute musts. Gelato is just better here and even more so on a hot day. Grab a cup, a cone, or a brioche (highly recommended) and take a stroll along the Navigli (the canals).
