Things to do in Milan in one day

Often, you end up visiting big cities only briefly – for a flight connection, a stopover enroute to another destination, or by choice. That’s what we did when we decided to spend 12 hours in Milan.

When you don’t have long in a city you have two options: pass your time wandering aimlessly, or make it unforgettable – and make the short hours you have feel like days.

Milan. Art, culture, food, fashion, finance, history. What’s the best way to expand the time we’ve got? The secret is in the intensity you give to the hours you have. The people you meet, the things you discover, and how you immerse yourself in the stories that surround you.

It’s the only way to change your perception of time, and feel thehours magically transforming themselves into days.

Crazy about street food? Nestled between the skyscrapers of Milan, there’s a place that’s out of this world. Unique, inimitable, unsurpassable. It’s not a kiosk, it’s not a tavern, it’s not a restaurant. What is it then? It’s a place that can only be called and defined by its name: Mangiari di Strada (Street Food).
