10 things to do in Milan in November – Winter is Coming…

If you just arrived in Milan here the best tips to live and visit the city at its best.

Shopping, Aperitivo, Culture and much more to be discovered in the beautiful Milan in Novembre 2019!


1) Enjoy your well-deserved Aperitivo Milanese

Probably the essence of being a citizen of Milan! Head to the Navigli or Isola to sip your drink and nibble on tasty appetizers while surrounded by the energy of young cosmopolites.

2) Walk on the amazing rooftop of the Milan Cathedral

Just allow all the beauty of the stunning views of the city to sink in; also, great location for your Instagram pictures 🙂

3) Live your best life shopping on a budget in Italy’s fashion capital

You should go to the Quadrilatero della Moda for some looking-without-buying kind of fun; however, shopping in Milan does not necessarily mean you have to spend a fortune in upscale boutiques.

Corso di Porta Ticinese is a street with unique and alternative shops where you can find original items.

4) Visit the ‘Justin K. Thannhauser’ Exhibition from the Guggenheim Museum

Starting from October 17th, the Palazzo Reale will be hosting, until February 2020, an exhibition with works from some of the most famous Impressionists, post-Impressionists and modern artists of the world.

5) Last Supper Tapestry at Palazzo Reale

The City of Milan has been promoting a series of events in commemoration of the 500 years since Leonardo Da Vinci’s death. Until November 17th you can visit – for free – the section of the Palazzo Reale hosting the gigantic tapestry of the Last Supper commissioned by Francis I of France.

6) Whisky Festival

Shout out to all whisky lovers in town! From the 8th to the 10th of November, the Hotel Marriott will be hosting the Whisky Festival. During these days you may learn and of course taste some good old whiskies. Famous distilleries will be also holding workshops dedicated to their products but hurry up…tickets are already selling out!

7) I Maestri del Panettone

Welcome to Italy, where we start obsessing over Christmas food already in November:) Panettone is a milanese institution and if you want to learn more, head to the ‘Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci’ on the weekend of November 30th to taste, learn about and even buy your very own Panettone.

8) Milan Music Week

From the 18th to the 24th the Milano Music Week is taking place and the city is once again celebrated for being the artistic hub of Italy. During these seven days, around Milan there will be concerts, workshops, exhibitions and discussions where Music will be the absolute center of attention.

9) Hop on a train and spend a day visiting Lake Como

Just 30 minutes from Milan there is the one and only Lake Como. Overly-crowded in summer but heaven on earth during fall. Stroll the gorgeous streets of Como while enjoying the colours of the autumn foliage.
