If we were only in Milan for 24 hours, where would you take us? Start the day with a “power” breakfast at Biancolatte and have a walk in Brera district’s narrow streets, then head to the centre for lunch at Il Salumaio and a quick visit to Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi. The afternoon is all about shopping in “Quadrilatero della Moda” and a visit to the latest exhibition at Palazzo Morando in Via Sant’Andrea. No way to leave Milan before having drinks at Ceresio 7 (hottest spot in town by DSquared2) and dining at Giacomo Bistrot, a real classic for a doc Milanese day.
