What to do in Milan in winter time

Who said winter holidays can only take place in the mountains? Metropolitan cities like Milan also have much to offer during winter time and definitely won’t disappoint you.

Milan is a fantastic destination in all seasons, and in winter, you can make various attractive plans, whether you want to stay in the open or like indoor activities. Milan is indeed the capital of fashion, but there is much more to it. It has a lot to offer cultural activities, food, coffee, music, and entertainment.

If we talk about activities related to art and culture, you can find expositions that can suit different tastes, from photography, painting, and sculpture to something modern or more contemporary. Palazzo Reale, GAM, Fondazione Rovati, MUDEC. As the list goes on, Pinacoteca di Brera and Fondazione Prada are only the tip of the iceberg of all the places you can visit. After the pandemic times in particular, museums and art galleries had a fantastic boom that is still growing quickly.

Also, just a few steps from the Galleria, you can find the world-famous La Scala theater, where you can enjoy Italian opera or a concert or simply get a tour of one of the world’s oldest and most historic theaters.

Instead, if you feel like enjoying an amazing shopping day because fashion is what calls you, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and the Quadrilatero della moda are what you are looking for: you can shop in the most exclusive boutiques, like Prada and Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Trussardi and many more.

If you feel like having a break from the shopping and want a real Italian coffee, you can stop by Marchesi, a historical pastry shop in Milan, where you can also ask for a hot chocolate for which it is famous. All this with a beautiful view from the top all over the Galleria. Are you feeling instead for ice cream in the winter? Why not! Grom can offer you the real experience of Italian gelato. Milanese people also enjoy the ciocollata calda with some cream on top. Just perfect for a freezing day.

After all these activities, you will feel tired and just want to relax after the long day, so what better than feeling at home in a short-term rental.
