Shopping:

What better reason to come to Milan than designer clothes and accesory shopping! All the shops of Italian luxury labels can be found in the Montenapoleone area. Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II offers some of the best shopping. We love 10corsocomo for their unique and of-the-moment brands. Don´t forget to shop at Prada, the Italian fashion label founded in 1913 in Milan. The Prada shops are in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, in Via Montenapoleone 8, Via Spiga 18 and Corso Venezia 3. For luxe discount shopping, head to Milan’s many outlets, where you can find designer clothes with a discount up to 70%.

Eat:

When you become hungry while you’re shopping in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II there are many restaurants and bars directly in the shopping zone, like Ristorante Galleria for lunch. For dinner you can go the stylish and elegant restaurant Roses in Via Cesare Beccaria 4. The newly restyled restaurant Chandelier in Via Giuseppe Broggi 17 is full of colourful sofas, bold prints and ornate busts. In this glamorous restaurant you can choose from typical Italian dishes paired with one of your favorites from the rich wine list.

Nightlife:

In Milan there are hundreds of bars, lounge bars, wine bars, pubs, live music bars, and discos. The who’s who head to Hollywood. The DJs usually play a mix of different types of music and you can enjoy the night on the dancefloor or in the privé. The largest club in Milan is Alcatraz. The music program varies from night to night, so you will always be in for a surprise! Another hot place for clubbing in Milan is Must Milano. If you enjoy house music, you have to go to the Atlantique. The restaurant, bar and private club is a great option to dance with the music from the most famous house bands.

Stay:

If you want to stay in the historical city center of Milan to have all the shops, bars and restaurants around, the Hotel Straf is the right choice. This hotel, complete with a stunning intellectual design, offers rooms and suites with modern stylish furniture designed by Vincenzo De Cotiis.

Four Seasons Hotel is a former 15th century convent. Most of the 118 rooms have a view of the courtyard. Another option is Hotel Principe di Savoia, which was renovated in 2006 boasting a contemporary style.
