I'm not a creature of habit, and luckily the area offers many different things to live and see.
First of all, Porta Venezia looks like the pastry district: from the neighborhood one, Rovida, to the more eclectic (almost surreal) San Gregorio, to the more 'fashionable' ones: Pave' and Gelsomina.
Grabbing a coffee: at the Orso Nero or Pause (or always from Rovida, to meet with neighbors and talk about plans for the neighborhood), while Bar Basso remains the preferred option for an aperitif or after dinner drinks.
To watch art exhibitions: at the Gio Marconi gallery, and at Arte Invernizzi.
The various bookstores along via Tadino are places to get lost and find yourself among the pages of old or new books.
The Children's Library makes readings for children of all ages (because Milano Baby Friendly also wants its part!).
Manicure and Pedicure: at Violette.
And then the food: a vegan lunch from Alhambra, Korean from Gaya or Miga, Indian from Just India, Italian from Sabbioneda, Chinese from Lon Fan, Swedish from Björk.
And last but not least, ice cream: at Gelato Giusto, at Terra or a Sicilian granita at the Bar Pasticceria Sicilia.
