From exploring Piazza del Duomo and shopping in one of Europe’s most historic malls, to aperitivos in Navigli and delicious Milanese food, this is the ultimate guide to spending one day in Milan.
We all love to take our time when we’re travelling, but occasionally that luxury just isn’t there. Whether it’s a quick layover, or a little gap before or after a work trip or holiday, sometimes a day is all we can spare.
In all honesty, when I’d asked friends for tips for my time in Milan, a few had said they didn’t like the city very much. It was disappointing to hear, but I knew I’d make up my own mind. I arrived there after an amazing few days in Lake Como with relatively low expectations. Needless to say, I was surprised. REALLY surprised. In fact, I warmed to Milan straight away, and was excited to recommend it to others.
