Join the lively atmosphere during evening aperitivo by the water. For a unique view, hop on a boat tour to admire the city's beauty from a different angle.

Palazzo Lombardia: 

Piazza Città di Lombardia, 1, 20124 Milano MI, Italien

If you're looking to experience breathtaking views of Milan beyond the Duomo, head to Palazzo Lombardia. Located in a skyscraper, this modern marvel houses an observation deck on its upper floors, providing panoramic vistas of the cityscape. From the heights of Palazzo Lombardia, you can enjoy sweeping 360-degree views that showcase Milan's stunning architecture and surrounding landscapes. It's a must-visit spot for anyone seeking a bird's-eye perspective of this vibrant city.

Villa Necchi Campiglio 

Via Mozart, 14, 20122 Milano MI, Italien

In interwar Milan, the elite gathered at Villa Necchi Campiglio, now a stunning house-museum. Designed by architect Piero Portaluppi in the 1930s, this landmark in the Quadrilatero del Silenzio boasts Milan's oldest private swimming pool. Explore and admire the Villa’s art-filled interiors and enjoy the poolside ambiance with a coffee, just like the villa's original guests afterwards. Experience the charm and history of Villa Necchi Campiglio, a true treasure of Milan.


Orsonero: 

Via Giuseppe Broggi, 15, 20129 Milano MI, Italien

If you're looking for a fantastic coffee break while exploring Milan, be sure to visit Orsonero. However, don't expect a traditional Italian corner cafe here. This stylish spot could just as easily be in London or New York. The interior is minimalist, featuring white walls and light wood tables. The menu is elegantly simple, offering espresso drinks, filter coffee and tea, along with a selection of pastries and sandwiches from local producers. Treat yourself to a coffee, relax and savor the Italian way of life at Orsonero.

Related Brand: Barena Venezia

Barena Venezia, a small, family-owned company has significantly influenced the way men (and women) dress in and outside of Italy over the past twenty-seven years. Before “sprezzatura” and “soft tailoring” became go-to terms for fashion editors, Barena was showing men how to dress casually and with class utilizing sartorial fabrics for rather sporty, workwear garments. The inspiration for Barena traces back to the style of the rural inhabitants of Venice: in fact, Barena derives its name from the term “baro,” which in Italian translates to “emerged lands” — a reference to a key feature of the Venetian landscape where both hunting and fishing were practiced by a slow sailing on a “Sanpierotta”, the flat-bottom boat depicted on the brand's recognisable logo. “Nothing inspires us more than life by the sea and the lagoon” says Barena creative director Pigozzo. Since the brand was founded in 1993 it grew significantly season after season, extending to womenswear in 2010 when Francesca Zara – daughter of the founder Sandro Zara – became part of the family business and Barena Women's creative director. Meanwhile, Barena maintains the fabric-first ethos it was founded upon. Pigozzo and Francesca Zara build each collection from the ground up, starting by looking for interesting materials and then basing their designs off the fabrics they find, often using original early-20th century patterns from the now rich brand archive.
