IN THE EVENING
Milan is the capital of fashion, design and business, but it does not disfigure in the field of nightlife.
The city is capable of inventing fashion, with art galleries in bars, concerts in bookshops, aperitifs in major hotels, in Milan opera, theatre, entertainment, music and sports find their full expression. The Milanese nightlife in fact means much more than just a dinner. The Lombard metropolis is characterized by an infinite number of restaurants, bars, pubs and discos, many of which offer their customers live music, especially Jazz or local groups. The discos open at 11pm and continue until 4am. For all those who want to start the evening a little earlier, not to be missed is the aperitif time for meeting, gathering and socializing. Remember Corso Como, located near the Garibaldi station. Here there are some of the most famous places for aperitifs as well as restaurants and discos generally very chic and elegant. To meet some famous people in this area is absolutely not an undertaking.
In fact, there are many footballers, top models, singers and charming tv assistants who go to Corso Como and its surroundings. Drinking, dancing or eating next to them will be a very special experience.
Among the liveliest areas are the Navigli, one of the most trendy areas of the city, frequented by painters, photographers and tourists looking for pretty corners of old Milan by day. In the evening, it becomes one of the most lively and noisy areas of Milan’s nightlife with characteristic dining and entertainment areas. The neighborhood is characterized by numerous pubs, bizarre breweries, disco bars with live music. Every evening, many young people from Milan and the surrounding area meet here. This neighborhood, where styles intertwine, is one of the most animated areas in every period of the year. Finally, the picturesque clubs located on the floating boats deserve attention, or worthy of note are the characteristic interiors of the old taverns where you can taste excellent wines and eat appetizers made with cold cuts and cheeses typical of Lombardy.
Another important meeting point for many Milanese and non-Milanese is Brera, a famous district located near the centre and frequented by artists mainly from the nearby Academy of Fine Arts. The area has become famous thanks to some illustrious personalities of the show and of the Milanese song. This place has become since the 70s and 80s a meeting point of the most “In” people of Milan. But you know, fashions are fashions and Brera also had its years of maximum splendor. Today it is a district renowned for its refined style, especially for its antique shops and for the market held every third Sunday of the month in Via Fiori Chiari. Although renovated, the Brera “Notturna” is characterized by narrow streets, small bars well furnished, soft lights, great live music with good musicians, always has its charm and is always alive in all seasons of the year, but especially on summer nights.
In the Città Studi area, in the north-eastern part of Milan, instead, you can find many historic breweries, where you can not only drink but you can also eat. Among the most famous places, the Union Club Via Moretto da Brescia in vintage style, the Brasserie Bruxelles in viale Abruzzi, while for those who love to drink high level beers, the Au Vieux Strasbourg in via Strambio. Continuing along this line, the famous Irish Pub Serial Number is a point of reference for students in Viale Romagna. For the refined, there is Eda in via Filippino Lippi. Very easy without too many frills the Lambrate Brewery in via Adelchi. A place where you can find beers only in some seasons because of the availability of raw materials, in other words, a real treat!
The MUBA, the Children’s Museum of Milan (Via Enrico Besana 12) is located in one of the most representative architectural buildings of the city; the Rotonda della Besana, a masterpiece of elegance and proportions, was built in the early ‘700 to collect the “bones” of the nearby Ospedale Maggiore. The structure offers exhibitions, interactive events, installations, sound stimuli, chromatic associations, reuse of waste elements, workshops and much more, to learn many new things simply by playing.
Milan offers interesting guided tours for children and their families at the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale (Corso Venezia 55) and at the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnica (Via San Vittore 21), the Museo del Cinema, MIC (Viale Fulvio Testi 121) with interactive cinema with talking wardrobes with the voice of stars. The Museum of Comics (Viale Campagna 12), a space for participation, where children and adults meet in laboratories.
A new way to dialogue with fantasy, while discovering the magic of space, you can not miss the Civic Planetarium (Corso Venezia 57), a structure that is part of the Montanelli Gardens next to the Natural Museum, one of the most important in Europe. Now it is a piece of scientific archaeology that Ulrico Hoepli had built by Piero Portaluppi and donated to the city of Milan in 1929. The large dome is transformed into a gigantic celestial vault on which a sophisticated apparatus simulates the movement of stars and planets.
Milan and sport have always gone hand in hand throughout their history. One of the most popular sports in the city is football. This is favoured by the presence of two of the most titled teams in Italy and the world: AC Milan and F.C. Internazionale as they have won the Champions League. The rivalry is very strong, the “derby of the madonnina” is the most felt and followed football match. The match takes place in what has been christened “La Scala del calcio”, the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in Piazzale Angelo Moratti (San Siro). It was built in 1926 and houses a museum inside. Particular attention should be paid to cycling, which has a strong tradition in Milan. Since the Second World War, the races have been held at the famous Velodromo Vigorelli in Via Arona 19, a historic sports facility inaugurated in 1935 and dedicated to track cycling. The structure was often characterized by the tightrope walking challenges between Maspes and Gaiardoni. Cycling today is the protagonist on the city streets. Even athletics should not be underestimated the races of this discipline are housed in the prestigious Arena Civic “Gianni Brera” in Viale Repubblica Cisalpina 1. However, the arena is also famous for hosting, since 2010, the internal competitions of Amatori Milano, a historic Milanese rugby club, one of the oldest (the foundation dates back to 1927), 18 times champion of Italy. In the San Siro district, in addition to the famous stadium, we find the racetracks of Milan, which have been among the most prestigious equestrian stages in the world for over a century. This sports facility is the only one of its kind in the world to have been declared a national monument in June 2002. This area, completely surrounded by huge green spaces of great charm, is entirely dedicated to equestrian sport. The tracks are among the most selective in the world thanks to a complete variety of routes. On these tracks, exceptional horses were starring among the trotters, including Varenne, Crevalcore, Tornese and Viking Kronos, while among the galloppers, Tony Bin, Ribot, Falbrav and Sirlad. The Trotting track is one of the fastest in the world and hosts important events such as the Grand Prix of Nations, the UNIRE Grand Prix, the European Grand Prix, the Grand Criterium, the Grand Prix Orsi Mangelli and finally the National Grand Prix. Basketball and volleyball are played at the Palalido in Via Marco Cremosano 2. Next to the Lido di Milano in Piazzale Lorenzo Lotto 15, a large swimming pool with water slides, umbrellas and deck chairs, open from June to September. We should also remember the sport practiced by non-professionals such as the Marathon and the Stramilano. The first, organized since 2000, is a race of over 42 kilometers that takes place in April, on a path without ripples, so very fast. The Stramilano instead is a sporting event created in 1972, is a race also open to fans, the so-called ” Sunday runners “.
