In search of perpetual wonder, the gourmet torurist is wandering the world.

Let’s discover how to spend a day like a true food lover and bon vivant in Milano city center, where taste and beauty are meeting - and you can take stunning pictures for your Instagram account.

From breakfast to dinner, let’s eat the most amazing food that Milano can offer, while seeing some beautiful sights.

Breakfast

Near Duomo, we kick off the day having a typical italian breakfast at Pasticceria Sant’Ambroeus counter. This Pasticceria was recently awarded as one of the best historical in town: respectful of Milano’s traditions in bakery and pastry making, in a beautiful and charming athmosphere – the Tea Room is just precious. Have a creamy cappuccino and eat a lovely pastry: Italian breakfast at its best!

Beauty in details

Duomo beauty is grand and somehow imposing. If you love details, take a look to “Santa Maria presso San Satiro”. One of the most beautiful and peaceful churches of the city.

 

Milano da bere - “Milano to drink”

Drinks before lunch? It was a common thing to do during the Sixties, in Milano. After a lovely walk around the Duomo, let’s go to the Gin Rosa bar and taste one of the most iconic cocktails of the city. A lovely meeting place for people that want to taste a shaked Gin Rosa, one of the best cocktails of the city.

 

Gourmet Lunch

Lunch is a pivotal moment of the day in Italy. So let’s choose an exceptional location. Under Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the Michelin star is shining above Ristorante Cracco.

Relaxed and elegant at the same time, the dining room is decorated in Art Déco style, with yellow and golden tones.

Tradition and innovation are meeting in the dishes designed by Carlo Cracco, a global chef celebrity: try red snapper with yuzu jelly and shaved scallops.

The restourant is also famous for its cellar: you can taste and also buy a special wine, choosing among the two tousand lables and ten tousand bottles keeped.

Eating at Cracco is really a special experience.

Afternoon: art or fashion?

If you are foodie, but you also have other interests, there are a number of activities you can do.

While some might prefer taking a stroll in the Fashion District to find out the lastes international trends, others might choose a visit to Osservatorio Prada. The art gallery of the fashion maison is an exhibition space mainly dedicated to photography and new visual languages. The exhibitions have a contemporary taste and host international artists.

Aperitivo at the foot of the Duomo

In Milano, you cannot miss Aperitivo. To taste one of the most iconic drinks of the city “Zucca Lavorato Secco”, let’s head to Camparino. Recently renewed in a contemporary fashion, that is not forgetting the timeless elegance of the bar, remembering the bar founding year, 1867. The recent renovation envolved the inclusion of an high end offering of food, with Davide Oldani, one of the best local chefs.

Sipping a drink, with some snacks and olives, while admiring the Duomo from the windows is really wonderful.

Dinner with a view

To round off the evening, we go above “Museo del Novecento” (“The Museum of ‘900) to enjoy a dinner in a stunningly elegant location. Giacomo Arengario restaurant brings togheter innovation and tradition and it’s just perfect spot to enjoy the view of Duomo spears while dining. Is included in Michelin guide “Forks”, appreciated for the quality of the ingredients and the Chef skills.
