What you'll do

With your host as your own personal GPS, menu translator and restaurant reviewer, all you’ll have to worry about is flitting between pasticceria (small shops selling cakes and sweet treats), tasting pizza al taglio and panino - Milan is known for its love of gourmet sandwiches since it’s a city always on the move! You could try tramezzini – Italian bread traditionally sandwiching mozzarella, Squacquerone or Fontina cheese, and meat (smoked prosciutto and parma ham are always winners) – and mouthwatering toppings like olives, artichoke spread or balsamic vinegar cream. For something sweet, pop to a pasticceria and indulge in a classic tiramisu or cornetto, or try delectable diplomatico (layers of puff pastry, sponge cake, and pastry cream).

Where you’ll go

In Milan’s cobbled streets, going hungry would be impossible. This is the city that invented the Italian tradition of aperitivo, after all, so food is a serious business! In Centro Storico, Milan’s most central district, you’ll be perfectly positioned to visit two of the city’s local haunts, Princi (the bakery of your dreams) and Spontini (a locally adored pizzeria) – they’re just two minutes apart! – to indulge in panino, tiramisu and pastries. For a break between bites, maybe you’ll take a stroll 15 minutes north to the city’s artistic heart, Brera, for an espresso at a sidewalk cafe or, if the time of day is just right, perhaps you’ll head south to the laid-back Navigli neighborhood for a canalside aperitivo.
