5 things to do in Milan this weekend From the 1st to the 3rd of March

The beginning of this weekend coincides with the first day of March: officially starting the countdown to the long-awaited spring, which promises to bring along mild weather that, hopefully, can improve our mood. Unfortunately, for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of this week, there will still be gray skies and rain to accompany our activities, from outings to art exhibitions to nightclub evenings recommended by the faithful nss guide. Here are 5 things to do this weekend in Milan.

Where to Eat - Cantun Bakery & Bistrot

With a well-established presence in the catering sector, Cantun Bakery & Bistrot opened its third branch on February 29. A great choice if you intend to have lunch with quick and tasty dishes. The menu offers a variety ranging from club sandwiches, bowls, burgers, salads to tartare. Consider Cantun also for aperitifs: you can choose from a wide selection of wines, beers, and cocktails accompanied by platters, burgers, club sandwiches, and other specialties such as the new entry Scrocchiarella, a light and unique crispy pizza.

What to Visit - Milano MuseoCity 2024

This week we don't recommend a specific museum or exhibition: from March 1st to 5th, Milano MuseoCity returns, the annual event where over 100 museums and institutions open their doors to the public, offering various types of events, including guided tours, conferences, meetings, and special initiatives united by a single guiding theme. The most special aspect of Milano MuseoCity 2024 lies in the variety offered, as each institution interprets design from artistic, historical, photographic, or scientific perspectives. You can find more information about all the institutions participating in the project on the MuseoCity website.

Where to Relax - La Manierina

A place that can guarantee privacy and intimacy might be just what you need as a remedy for this gloomy weekend. Discover the lounge at La Manierina, a wine bar (which is also a bistro and gourmet lounge) in the Porta Venezia area where you can enjoy a wide selection of wines. The multifunctional place is a creation of the renowned chef Francesco Germani, who, after returning to Italy following an experience abroad, realized the desire to make his customers feel at home.

Where to Shop - Little Market and Buona Domenica Market

Only the fearless will hit the streets of Milan with the intention of shopping considering the weather forecast for this weekend. Little Market and Buona Domenica Market are two excellent "outdoor" options. The first is a great place to buy designer craft pieces, while the second is inspired by the American concept of a flea market. Expect to find all kinds of items, from fanzines and clothing to other categories of second-hand goods.

Where to Have Fun - Disco Stupenda

Ken Laszlo, the king of Italian disco music and author of the 80s hits Hey Hey Guy and Tonight, will be the special guest of the new monthly appointment at Disco Stupenda. Spinning the records, as always, will be the resident DJ Tommiboy, accompanied by Pascal Viscardi. Get ready to dance to the notes of the hidden gems of Italian disco music.
