5 things to do in Milan this weekend From July 29 to 31

The heat is not loosening its grip on the city, but this only serves to push us out of our homes in search of distractions. Just because it is summer in the city does not mean there is nothing to do; on the contrary, this very season should be an opportunity to discover new secrets of the city

Here then, without further ado, are the 5 things to do in Milan this weekend

To Eat – Motelombroso

At the end of the Naviglio Pavese canal, in a former cantoniera house from the late 1800s, is this garden restaurant, conveniently tucked away from the road and thus endowed with the look and intimacy of an oasis. The restaurant's menu is concise and expressive: lemon and pecorino spaghetti, monkfish, and the dessert Roccioso dominate.

Alzaia Naviglio Pavese, 256

To Chill – Eurojolly Biliardi

A historic pool hall at the Navigli, as well as a gathering place where time seems to have stopped somewhere between the 1970s and 1980s, Eurojolly Billiards is an alternative institution in the city. If the bar table has bored you, if the energy to go dancing is failing or if you are simply looking for something different to do, you now have the right address.

Corso Cristoforo Colombo, 13

To Club – La Cannibale @ Castello Sforzesco

Dancing at Castello Sforzesco has always been a must for the Milanese summer. It may be the lawns, it may be the ancient walls and towers, it may be the open space - but at night the Castle is a paradise. You will still have to deal with mosquitoes so, in addition to RSVP for the evening, bring Autan like it's raining.

To Shop – Madame Pauline Vintage

To stay in the Castello area, why not visit this historic vintage store that, by the way, hosted the Valentino Vintage initiative during Design Week? The choice and selection of clothes are legendary nor do they need any introduction-not to add that a little shopping before leaving for the vacation can only do good.

Foro Buonaparte, 74

To Discover – I Marmi Torlonia @ Gallerie d’Italia

An incredible collection of ancient marble statues collected over the decades by the historic Torlonia family and recently made the focus of an exhibition in Rome has landed in the city, and if you haven't already seen it, it's a good time to go now. 

Piazza Della Scala, 6
