Italian restaurants generally have very high standards and one thing Italians are really into, is quality food. So it’s a good idea to follow the locals around lunch and dinner time.

Food is one of the most important aspects of life in this country; Italians discuss what they’ll have for dinner while they’re having lunch, So if a restaurant has a lot of Italian guests you are sure to eat well.

Besides the names you can find in the Michelin guide we recommend the following places. The price levels are varied – € 20-30, €€ 30-50, €€€ >50 – but note that it isn’t necessary to spend a fortune to eat well.

360° degree view over Milan

If you want a fun experience and a view of Milan that takes your breath away (don’t worry you won’t have to walk all the way up there is an elevator) then you have to go up in the Torre Branca.

Right next to the museum Triennale di Milano is the 108 m tall Torre Branca which was designed by architect Gio Ponti in 1933. From its top you have a  360° panorama over the whole city. If there are strong winds or the weather is bad they are closed. It costs € 5,00 per person.

You could combine your vist with a visit to the Triennale museum and maybe even have lunch at the museum’s restaurant Terrazza Triennale. Or you could take a walk through the park and visit the Castello Sforzesco.
