ShermansTravel experts do the legwork – literally – to walk you through the neighborhoods and regions in your destination. From local geography to notable landmarks to the hotel and restaurant meccas, we detail which areas to scope out during your stay and which spots aren’t worth the cab fare.

Milan Neighborhoods


A once-vital canal system and trade route has been rejuvenated as one of the trendiest, liveliest places in town. Expect an abundance of bistros, discos, and cafes.

Centro Storico

Milan’s historical center is awash with things to see and do, including the dramatic Gothic duomo, the world-renowned opera house La Scala, and the magnificent Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

Corso Como

People flock to Corso Como for its street market and trendy shops by day and for its happening bar and club scene by night.

Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle confirms Milan’s fashion capital status – shops like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino line the sophisticated streets of Via Montenapoleone, Della Spiga, and Sant’ Andrea.


This elegant area overlooks Milan’s largest park, Parco Sempione. After scouring the area’s shops, take time to stroll through the meadow, or enjoy an aperitif in one of the numerous bars.


Famed for its artists and galleries, this charming, bohemian neighborhood is made up of excellent restaurants, stately buildings, and winding streets.

Porta Magenta

The main pull is Leonardo Da Vinci’s "The Last Supper" (on display in the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent), but there are also hotels and shops, especially along Via Vercelli.

Zona Tortona

Newly popular as a center of fashion and creativity, architectural icons like Georgio Armani headquarters, the Matteo Thun-designed hotel Nhow, and The Design Library are all here.
