Enjoy the best Milan has to offer in a peaceful way because this is the kind of experience you’ll never forget.
If you’re looking forward to stopping by Milan’s fashion boutiques, then the Mandarin Oriental might be an appropriate option – it just takes a short walk. The rooms and suites were designed by Antonio Citterio and the hotel is set in a complex of 18th Century buildings. Not convinced yet? There’s a 2 Michelin stars restaurant on-site!
Claudio Liu opened this fine restaurant in 2007 and now it is seen as a “food temple”. Delicious dishes set the scenario for this sensational restaurant, whose kitchen is led by Michele Biassoni. For fans of mouth-watering raw dishes, Iyo has the master Masaki Okada on the sushi counter. Tasty!
Miramonti l’Altro di Concesio
Located in a lovely villa, Miramonti l’Altro di Concesio combines the greatest food with the owners’ hospitality. Fish from the lake and the sea and a distinct French influence will surely blow your senses. There’s also a selection of Italian cheeses and other varieties you need to taste. Don’t miss it!
Da Vittorio di Brusaporto
Away from Milan’s bustle, we find this sensational restaurant… on the hills. It has been a favorite for the seafood lovers since 1960 so what are you waiting for? Da Vittorio di Brusaporto received it’s third Michelin star in 2010 for their out-of-this-world food and its decoration is simply mesmerizing. Feel hungry yet?
Il Duomo is one of the most magnificent churches ever, an example of the Flamboyant Gothic style. It’s massive, colossal and, of course, extremely inspiring. If you have the chance, take a walk on the roof of the cathedral because that’s an impressive experience with mind-blowing views of the city.
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
If you’re into luxury shops and elegant cafés, you’ll find Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II a lovely place to visit. Built between 1865 and 1877, designed by Giuseppe Mengoni, it’s a splendid example of the 19th Century’s architecture style. It’s like being in the setting of a movie… a luxurious one.
Located next to one of the most amazing Milan gardens, Castello Sforzesco features a collection of decorative art, antiquities and a gallery that includes paintings by Bellini, Bergognone and Antonello da Messina. Perfect for those relaxed times with your family or friends. You won’t regret it.
Museo del Novecento
Museo del Novecento is dedicated to the 20th Century and how it inspired us as years passed by. It’s a place of tremendous value in what comes to cultural and artistic heritage. There are a lot of exhibitions happening throughout the year and certainly you’ll find a lot of things that will make you fall in love instantly. Art is powerful!
Here’s a good example of ideological renovation. MUDEC was an old factory that got transformed into a complex of studios, workshops and other creative spaces. Industrial archaeology gives way to the world of imagination and now you get to see it with your own eyes. Because change always brings good things.
Bringing style, energy, and diversity to Fuorisalone, 5VIE is one of the richest areas for culture and creativity and better still, it’s located in the heart of the city just a stone’s throw from cultural strongholds like the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and Via Montenapoleone.
Tortona Design District is almost like an exposition of the latest design trends. Lofts, photographic and design studios, showrooms, workshops, fashion ateliers and industrial sites in the district are transformed into exhibition areas where, each year, over one hundred companies present their best products from their previous years.
For all those who are attending Milan Design Week, the Brera Design District is a mandatory stopping point. It’s like a parallel universe you will remember for life and for sure you’ll feel the need to come back every now and then. From digital marketing to concept and graphic design, with all that is in between, Brera has a bit of everything.
For more than 10 years, the chain of showrooms, in Milan, has been one of the most influential ones. With a high-end selection of curate design pieces, Bredaquaranta follows every step of its clients’ projects, since the concept, selection of pieces and installation of the previous ones.
Bredaquaranta has eleven showrooms spread all over Milan, but we are sure that you’ll want to attend Bredaquaranta Fatebenefratelli, next month. If you’re a design lover, we’re sure that you’ll attend iSaloni Milano 2023, and, of course, you’ll go to the amazing parties in Brera District. It’s the perfect opportunity to stablish important business relations in a casual environment.

International Furniture Accessories Exhibition
Launched in 1989, in response to the growing demand for decorative goods, the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition has become the sector’s leading event, showcasing an increasingly varied and comprehensive selection of excellent pieces year by year, encompassing the entire home furnishing system, ranging from decorative objects, furnishing accessories and textiles for the home.
Workplace3.0 is an innovative exhibition area devoted to design and technology in workspace planning, that confirms its vocation as an exploration of brand-new approaches, forms and solutions to the workplace “of the future”, in which the human factor and smart technologies have a vital role to play.
S.Project collects design products and decorative and technical interior design solutions. In complete synergy with the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, The International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition, Euroluce, Workplace3.0 and SaloneSatellite, S.Project selects and valorizes manufacturers’ proposals, providing a 360-degree perspective on interior architecture and responding to the latest market demands.
Euroluce, now in its 31st edition, gets the exhibition layout rethought, so as to guarantee better connections between the four pavilions, simplify the visitor path into an irregular loop, inspired by the street plans of traditional Italian towns – and, equally, to increase exhibitor visibility, ensuring that they each have a decent amount of space. The City of Lights will be the concept and the common thread running through the exhibition. Power of imagination and concrete vision will characterize the interdisciplinary cultural content, turning Euroluce into a positive hub of emotions and knowledge.
