The city of Milan has so many different attractions dedicated to the new visitors.
For those interested in learning more about the city and its main highlights, these three unusual places may prove to be essential.
We have selected a short collection of locations; three destinations that will fire your curiosity and push you to look at Milan with new eyes.
Let’s find out together what are the three most unusual and interesting places to see in Milan, so you can enjoy a vacation completely out of the ordinary.
The Guastalla Garden ranks among the smallest and oldest parks in all of Milan. It was founded in 1555 at the behest of the Countess of Guastalla and remained private until 1939.
The small garden is dotted with beautiful marble and terracotta statues, creating an atmosphere of yesteryear.
A large pond is placed in the center of the garden, with as many as 1,700 different fish inside, including carp and goldfish.
This beautiful park is a small point of peace, just a short walk from the main campus of the Milan State University, a gathering place to look for serenity.
LùBar is one of Milan’s most famous bistros, a small bar located inside a museum – the Villa Reale in Palestro.
The charming LùBar, a Sicilian café-bistro completely surrounded by nature, is marked by the presence of large windows and white marble floors.
Natural light penetrates inside the location and gives thrills to all new visitors.
If you are a lover of Sicilian cuisine and would like to treat yourself to a visit to the nearby Modern Art Gallery, this is the perfect starting point.
We conclude by mentioning the beautiful Fondazione Prada, a contemporary art lover’s paradise.
The Milanese passion towards art – and culture in general – finds its highest expression here.
Miuccia Prada and Maurizio Bertelli opened the Fondazione Prada to collect some of the most interesting works of contemporary art.
The art exhibitions are constantly being updated, as is the choice of featured artists. The structure is definitely worth a visit, a close look to discover all its beauties.
