How to Spend 24 Hours in Milan, Italy

How to Spend 24 Hours in Milan, Italy

Written By : Cristina Calciati

Hello everyone!

Today I’ve decided to share with you my suggestions on how to spend 24 hours in Milan.


The Duomo



I don’t want to be too “basic” , but you should obviously see the Duomo.

The metro stop is called Duomo and you find it on the yellow line. This church is the most known monument in the city. I suggest you visit the inside as well. Sometimes the queue can be very long, but if you have time you should enter!
The square in front of the Duomo is a great spot for taking photos!


Museo del Novecento e Palazzo Reale



Just steps away from the Duomo there are two stunning museums: Museo del Novecento e Palazzo Reale.

The pieces inside are amazing and if you’re into art you can’t miss them. A little fun fact: the Museo del Novecento is free entrance for students, and from the top floor you can take beautiful pics of the Duomo Square.

Luini Bakery



Buy some panzerotti or focaccia from this extremely famous bakery called Luini. The line outside will probably be longer than the one outside the Duomo, but the food is too good to miss! If you don’t want to eat there, check out one of my older posts about cafes in Milan for more ideas.


Galleria Vittorio Emanuele



Near the Duomo is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele which very iconic as well. Its architecture is admired worldwide and there you can see some of the top designer shops.

Teatro Scala and Museum Gallerie D’Italia



Outside there is Teatro Scala. Entering is a pleasure, and I hope you get the chance to go to a show there. While you are there, visit the museum Gallerie d’Italia, another very cool art gallery.



Navigli is a very popular area in Milan. You should spend the night there, eat something in one of the bars and then have a drink.

I posted about the Navigli in a previous post about Milan, and I also filmed some Instagram stories at the vintage fair there for our new Instagram account!


Via Torino



You must check out Via Torino. If you want to do some quick shopping this area is perfect.

Di Porta Ticinese


After there’s Di Porta Ticinese, full of nice little shops and vintage boutiques. All you have to do is walk straight!



Milan is a city full of many things to see and do. But, I think for 24 hours this is enough! Let us know if you want me to write more about this city, or if you need some particular suggestions. You can e-mail us or comment in case you need some more info or idea’s, I’m happy to help!
