24 Hours in Milan

The Ultimate City Guide

The second most popular city to visit in Italy, Milan is undeniably the city of style. With culture, history and food (that’s almost too good) on every street corner, we’ve got your 24 hours in Milan covered.

Get Up and Go

Spend the morning getting cultured – you’re in one of the world’s most historic cities after all. Home to The Last Supper of Leonardo Da Vinci, tickets to enter Santa Maria delle Grazie are notoriously difficult to come by, so you’ll need to plan in advance for this one. If you’re lucky enough to bag yourself tickets, seeing the artist’s iconic painting in the flesh is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“Spend the morning getting cultured.”

While you’re on the culture train, head to the Duomo. A spiked gothic-esque cathedral, you can climb the 150 stairs to the roof (we’re taking the lift), where you’ll be met by a truly beautiful view. Said to be one of the best scenes in Italy, on a clear day you can see past the city and catch a glimpse of the Alps.

One-stop Shop

Calling all shopaholics, head to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele for a shopping experience you won’t forget. Built with marble floorways and decadent mosaics, it earnt its fame as the home of some of the most stylish people, and shops, on the planet. Spare yourself a few hours to browse this world-famous mall.

Eat Up

Treat yourself to a Michelin star meal at VUN Andrea Aprea. Offering an elegant twist on Italian classics, all infused with locally sourced ingredients, this fancy restaurant is imbued with authentic Italian culinary traditions and Neapolitan heritage.

If you want delicious food that’s a little more relaxed, head to Luini for delectable treats. With a queue that snakes down the street on weekends, wander over to this hole-in-the-wall take-away during the quieter hours to avoid the crowds.
