📍 Flea market
There are different kinds of flea markets in Italy—antique markets, second-hand markets and Mercato Delle Pulci (flea markets in Italian). Imagine how many unusual things you could find there: shoes, clothes, toys, jewelry, furniture, and even food. The most popular flea markets are situated in Venice, Rome, Milan, Arezzo, and Turin. It’s an excellent chance for collectors to find things that can no longer be found anywhere else, such as antique books, magazines, newspapers and other fashionable old stuff.
In Milan, you’ll find the prominent Mercatone dell’Antiquariato (Antiques Market) on the canal of Naviglio Grande in Lombardy, which takes place on the last Sunday of every month, except in July and August. It’s the perfect place to visit during Next month!
📍 Aperitivo Time in Milan
Aperitivo or Happy Hours is a Northern Italian tradition stemming from the city of Milan. The trend has spread far to Turin, Florence, Rome, and Naples. Still, Milan remains the best place for an authentic Aperitivo experience. Aperitivo time starts at 6 pm or 7 pm when people leave work and university to get ready to relax with their friends before dinner.
There are plenty of places in Milan that offer Aperitivo Hour. You just need to remember this magic phrase:
Dove posso fare un buon aperitivo.
Which means “Where can I have a good aperitivo?” You’ll be sure to get plenty of advice. Aperitivo Time last until 9 pm, which is a great opportunity for budget travelers.
📍 Isola Street Art
This is a great way to spend your time and explore the city. Milan is not only about Gucci and Prada handbag boutiques. The city offers so much more to fall in love with! It’s a city full of contemporary artists that embrace new forms of art such as street art, stencil graffiti, graffiti artwork, sticker art, etc.
The best spot in Milan to discover independent public art and graffiti is in the vibrant Quartiere Isola. Years ago, Isola was a type of “popular district”, where lower-class families used to live. The word “Isola” means “Island”, confirming the fact that the area was isolated from the rest of the city. Now it has turned into a giant open-air art gallery.
📍 Milano Music Week
