Porta Venezia is my first recommendation for a neighborhood that offers a little bit of everything: food, shopping, culture, family entertainment and nightlife. Porta Venezia is a blend of three very different parts of Milan: the sophisticated Porta Nuova, the fast-paced Corso Buenos Aires and the laid-back Porta Romana. This area has many options for mid-range shopping that will give you a taste of Milan’s high fashion without spending your entire travel budget in one go. This is not generally considered the most attractive part of the city, but if that is indeed true, you can only imagine how beautiful the rest of Milan is. The streets are lined with neoclassical buildings and feature public spaces like the Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli park, the Natural History Museum and the Galleria d’Arte Moderna, housed in an 18th-century palace. At night, Porta Venezia comes alive with wine bars, food trucks and karaoke clubs. The heart of this neighborhood, Via Lecco, is one of Milan’s most popular spaces for the city’s LGBT community. During June, international Pride Month, this area becomes known as Milan’s Pride Square and is lit up with colorful Pride flags all around.
