10 modi per sopravvivere a Milano quest'estate

10 modi per sopravvivere a Milano quest'estate


#1 Gelato

Italy is famous abroad for two things in particular: pizza and ice cream. To refresh yourself in the hot summer afternoons you can go for the second, and lick it possibly far from indiscreet looks. 


#2 Pool Party

Do you want to refresh yourself in a swimming pool but you hate that unsightly swim cap you wore when you were little? You can crash a pool party, or you can discover here the best outdoor pool to chill at in Milan. 


#3 Darsena

The new Darsena is for all the nostalgic people who have been to Paris and fell in love with that typically French habit to make picnics by the river. Now Milan has its little Seine: you can relax on the banks of the Naviglio and have a drink there. If you are lucky enough, you can also assist in a free open-air concert. 


#4 Open-air cinema

Do you remember the drive-in? You certainly fell in love with it while watching movies set in the '50s like Grease or American Graffiti. You can imitate John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John by going to the new Drive-In in Bovisa. 


#5 Museums

You are looking for air-conditioned but you also love culture? In Milan, there’s many places you are gonna love. You can take shelter inside the new Museo del ‘900, rediscover the masters of the past at the Pinacoteca di Brera  or immerse in the design avant-garde at the Triennale Museum


#6 Shopping + Aperitivo + Library

If you want to spend an afternoon completely dedicated to trendy shopping in the heart of Milan, 10 corso como is the place for you. Right next to the new quarter of Porta Nuova you can buy the coolest brands of the moment, watch a photography exhibition, buy a rare magazine and relax having a drink in the private court of the location surrounded by refreshing plants.


#7 Park

The park is the most eco-chic solution to spend a nice summer afternoon in the city. You can lie under the trees of Parco Sempione, Giardini Indro Montanelli, or enjoy a bbq with your friends at Bosco in Città.


#8 Spritz St. Germain

Tired of the classic Spritz? This summer you can try a new one which substitutes the traditional Aperol with St. Germain liquor. You can try it at Ugo, a cosy bar in the Navigli district where you can also taste the cocktail of the house: the Ugo. Try to believe.


#9 Terrace

Where to enjoy the summer breeze if not on one of Milan terraces? You can have a drink with a view on the buildings of the city and, if you are lucky enough, on the Duomo peaks. You can chose among Terrazza Di Saronno, Aperol or Martini: there’s one for all tastes! 


#10 Open disco

Tired of sweating between the walls of the club? Milan has the perfect solution for you: Magnolia is open all summer long with a rich selection of concerts, markets and events.
