Below you can see their favorite go-to spots in Milan.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I frequent some restaurants like Langosteria Cafè, Il Baretto, Da Giannino, and Da Gino, but also the Bulgari Hotel or the Trussardi alla Scala. My favorite is Camillo Benso, for its Neapolitan cuisine.

WHERE TO SEE ART

The museums and foundations that I frequent are the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Triennale di Milano, the Museo del Novecento, HangarBicocca, Fondazione Prada, and Fondazione Carriero. The galleries that I go most often to are Raffaella Cortese, Zero, Massimo De Carlo, Kaufmann Repetto, Giò Marconi, and the younger ones Galleria Federico Vavassori and Clima Gallery.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX

When I need to relax, I usually take a walk to Sempione Park, near my house, or I shut myself up in a museum, such as the Pinacoteca di Brera. I also like to go to the spa and then to the cinema. I prefer historic movie theaters like the Arlecchino or The Space cinema on Via Santa Radegonda.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Giacomo Arengario for the view, atmosphere, and wine selection. Langosteria is the best place for fish in Milan. Drogherie Milanesi is super-casual, with incredible food and a very friendly staff. Have the carbonara and the tapas! For drinks, the Mandarin Oriental and The Yard, and try brunch at the Bulgari Hotel (but you have to book).

WHERE TO SEE ART

Fondazione Prada, Pinacoteca di Brera, Cenacolo Vinciano, Triennale, Pirelli HangarBicocca, and while you are walking around, just look up—you are surrounded by art and beauty in Milan.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX

I love the Armani Spa, and I’ve heard the Mandarin Oriental spa is very good, too. I like to meet my friends for coffee on the Navigli or in Brera or in my beloved Marchesi. It’s best to avoid the Duomo area on the weekends. Milan is all about the people, so if you are with the right ones, you can have fun everywhere.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Masuelli for a real Milanese food experience. I recommend Il Piatto del Buon Ricordo. If you are in Milan, you can’t miss a Negroni at Bar Basso, one of the most historic places to have a drink in the city. And Pasticceria Marchesi is the most elegant pastry shop in Milan. Stop by for a sweet break or just a coffee during a walk downtown.

WHERE TO SEE ART

Fondazione Prada is a total experience. And I recommend a visit to Fondazione Prada Osservatorio—the venue dedicated to photography, with an amazing and unexpected view of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Casa-Museo Boschi di Stefano is an immersive experience into the sophisticated taste of one of the most relevant Milanese collectors. The Boschi di Stefano collection is an extraordinary testimony to the history of 20th-century Italian art. Don’t miss the stunning Fontana room!

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX

The Palazzo Parigi Hotel & Grand Spa is set in the heart of Milan’s fashionable Brera district and is an absolute treat after a busy day in Milan. Plastic wrote the history of clubbing in Milan. It’s not just a club, but a melting pot of music, art, and culture. In the eighties you could meet Andy Warhol and Keith Haring there.
