Interesting walk from the ancient architecture into an area of modern skyscrapers, separated by a gate. Skyscrapers are common in cities, but still feels pretty unreal to see them in a city like Milan. Our guide shared that this used to be abandoned, unused land....More

Well worth the walk here. Milan is building this out to be their version of New York's Highline. This Piazza is at the end of the walk, many restaurants, shops and the gateway into the Como and Garibaldi area.

A thing to see , very nice place connecting the old and the new in the north of the city, basically a shopping mall with high rise buildings around. The works are under construction but it promises to be the highlight of the city.

Unexpected area, modern and upscale. Premium shops, but great for a stroll with friends or the one you love.
