The best way to nib­ble and drink your way through Mi­lan’s best culi­nary of­fer­ing is to ex­pe­ri­ence aper­i­tivo. And the most lux­u­ri­ous is to en­joy the Ital­ian tra­di­tion of snack­ing and drink­ing be­fore din­ner (or­der some­thing like an Aperol spritz or a vino and you can help yourself to a com­pli­men­tary plate of any­thing from pasta to breads and cheeses) at the luxe Principe Bar where the Fash­ion Week set hang out.

SHOP & other

sto­ries Part of the H&M group, ex­pect ev­ery­thing from beauty prod­ucts to ac­ces­sories and ready-to-wear fash­ion that feels like it’s straight off the run­way, as if you were privy to the rails back­stage. Ev­ery item in this store feels in­cred­i­bly well-made and is sold at rea­son­able prices. Sto­ries.com PAUSE Teatro alla Scala This is, in my opin­ion, the only place to watch opera in Mi­lan as it is one of the world’s most renowned opera houses. Make sure you dress up, but with the fi­nesse of a Mi­lanese sar­to­ri­al­ist. Teatroal­las­cala.org
