📍Via Monte Napoleone & Quadrilatero d’Oro

While many people will make a trip to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II for its famous shopping Centre, a great alternative is to visit Via Monte Napoleone and Quadrilatero d’Oro where many of the same stores have boutiques that line the street. You'll be able to walk amongst the beautiful buildings while browsing the windows of some of the most famous designers. 

📍Parco Sempione 

Take a stroll through the largest park in Milan, close to the historic city centre. Inside you'll find Castle Sforzesco, Arco della Pace, a beautiful pond, and plenty of places for a picnic or to grab an aperitivo. 

📍Sforzesco Castle

At the entrance of Parco Sempione, you will find a 15th century medieval castle where Leonardo once worked. You can take guided tours inside or spend your time exploring the exterior and beautiful courtyard- the perfect picnic spot. 

📍Piazza Sempione 

Once you're through the park, you'll stumble upon Piazza Sempione where you can grab a bite to eat and sit outside to enjoy the sunshine
