Milanese ZIS parent Massimiliano Nunziata shares his insider’s guide to the global capital of fashion and design.
Enjoy a pastry
Pasticceria Sissi is famous for its pastries – their fruit pastries with cream are sensational. And its shady garden is a good place to hideaway for a coffee or freshly pressed pomegranate juice.
Browsing in Brera
Brera is one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods and where you’ll find the Pinacoteca di Brera art gallery. But there are many smaller clothes and antique shops that you’ll only find in Milan.
Explore a food hall
If you know the food halls of Globus or Jelmoli in Zurich, then Peck is like that to the power of ten. This friendly indoor market has high-quality produce, including fruit, ham, cheese and wine.
Visit two Scalas
Catching an opera at Teatro alla Scala is a must, but there’s another Scala to visit – the San Siro football stadium (and watch the Milan derby, between AC Milan and Inter Milan if you can). 1
Enjoy art in the park
The Triennale di Milano is a large gallery focused on modern art and design. It’s located in a park and they have an outdoor restaurant, so you can combine your visit with an early supper.
