No-one knows a city like a local. And there are few people that are more synonymous with Milano than Giorgio Armani. So this may just be THE ultimate guide to Milan; where to stay, eat, shop and explore as recommended by none other than Mr Armani.
I’ve been lucky enough to visit Milan multiple times, but it’s not an easy city to wrap your head around. For example, you’ll be hard-pressed to find somewhere to eat between 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Flagging a taxi down is a flat No (you’ll need to find a taxi rank instead). However, it’s also a beautiful city — replete with romantic cobbled streets, impressive architecture and impossibly-well-dressed locals. Essentially, it’s a city worth getting to know.
I loved exploring Milan through the eyes of Mr Armani; not just because he has impeccable taste and is Italian as they come, but because I often explore a new place with my own preferences in mind. So, rather than hunting down the best vege spots or coffee shops (what can I say; I’m predictable), I spent my time in Milano like the locals do.
