What To Do During Your Day Trip in Milan


Spend Time in Piazza del Duomo

It's the main public square in Milan, the center of all the neighborhoods and one of the busiest areas in the city. The space is so wide and massive, so much so that even when it's crowded, there's still enough legroom for you to roam around and explore. And since it's lined with all sorts of architectural marvels—not the least of which is the iconic cathedral—you can bask in the imposing glory of Milan all you want!

And come springtime, the Brera District's narrow streets are filled with plants, vines, and flowers, amping up the botanical bliss in this otherwise bustling metropolis. The area itself is filled with art galleries, small academies, all sorts of foodie hotspots, and more to guarantee that you have a fun and exciting time here.

See Italian Art at Pinacoteca di Brera

Speaking of the art galleries in the Brera District, one that you simply must visit is Pinacoteca di Brera. The museum is largely regarded as Milan's public gallery of paintings, especially since it houses countless artworks by various notable Italian artists. You can see pieces by the likes of Raphael, Giovanni Bellini, Antonio da Correggio, and more. Even the place's history itself is pretty fascinating. The Palazzo Brera first served as a convent before it became a museum back in the 19th century. It survived the Second World War and not much has changed since then.

Relax in Parco Sempione

Parco Sempione is one of Milan's most beautiful parks. With the beautiful Castello Sforzesco in the background, it looks like the perfect setting for a classic Italian novel or even a period film set in the city.

You can easily escape all the hustle and bustle of the city and just take the load off here. If you're with your friends and family, a sunny picnic is a good idea to pass the time too!

Watch a Football Game

For any sports fan, a day in Milan isn't complete without watching a football game or two. Fortunately, the San Siro Stadium, home of the famous AC Milan football club, regularly hosts matches practically every single day. It's actually one of the most famous and world-renowned stadiums in the world, having hosted the World Cup twice, in 1934 and in 1990. Its seating capacity is over 80,000, so when there's a really good game with popular teams on, there's a good chance you can still score tickets. And if you want to learn more about AC Milan, you can also visit the stadium's mini-museum about them.
