If travelers desire to shop around, the best streets for doing so are Corso Buenos Aires, Via Montenapoleone, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and Via Torino.

The Italian pre-dinner tradition of aperitivo is almost a must-do in Milan. Travelers can enjoy an aperitivo while watching the sunset over the Duomo from one of the two terraces: Aperol or Rinascente. Travelers can partake to the more Milanese tradition of the apericena which is more of an all-you-can-eat food buffet and drinks. This is typically found in the Navigli district.
