Luca Micheletto on Milan

Luca grew up between violin lessons, gardening courses and a packed bag on his doorstep, ready to leave for his next family trip. After completing his classical studies and a degree in Communication, he embarked on an entrepreneurial adventure founding Luuk Magazine a luxury lifestyle magazine, where he shares his love for travel, beauty and fashion. Having lost his green thumb and musical ear, he’s now left with being an insatiable traveller. Today, Luca leaves his suitcase at home and takes us to his favourite places in his hometown: Milan. Enjoy!

EAT
Oasi Giapponese It’s one of the few Japanese restaurants in the city offering authentic cuisine from “Sol Levante” in a simple environment.

Temakinho Magenta Open since 2012 to divulge the Japanese-Brazilian cuisine, Temakinho has taken Milan by storm! It has recently opened its third restaurant near the Cadorna station, my personal favourite. Don’t forget to pair your meal with a guava, passion fruit or mango capirinha!

Cucina del Toro If you’re an Italian cuisine lover, you can’t help but love this intimate restaurant. Their best dishes are the tartare with anchovy sauce, the pumpkin lasagna with goat’s milk and hazelnut, and the risotto with saffron, black truffles and port.

Viveca Pizza & More This neighbourhood restaurant is the place for anyone who has no intention of giving up on eating pizza!

Bar Luce Milan’s fashion personalities consider a coffee here a must throughout their day. This bar, designed by Miuccia Prada and Wes Andrerson, is the perfect stop after visiting the beautiful Prada Foundation!

 

DRINK
TIBI It became the go-to spot for anyone living in the Brera area only two months after its opening. The variety of cocktails and the French bistrot-style atmosphere make it really worth the visit.

Pravda Definitely not glamorous, this bar attracts vodka lovers who’ll find dozens of different labels here. Try their vodka sour with passion fruit or green apple, prepared with fresh fruit.

 

STAY
Park Hyatt A place which always manages to reinvent itself, thanks to its impeccable attention to detail. The rooms are spacious and equipped with every comfort, and the public spaces invite you to carve out some time even in the most chaotic days.

Secondo Pensiero A great place for those who want to experience the thrill of staying somewhere truly Milanese. This charming B&B in the heart of Milan is perfect for exploring the city on foot: it’s only a short walk from the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie and the main Milanese attractions.

Trova Il Tempo This luxury B&B is set in a charming building from the early 20th century. Completely renovated in 2008, it’s enriched by a small garden designed by a landscape architect. It offers stylish double bedrooms and an apartment equipped with all modern comforts.

 

EXPERIENCE
Galleria Cortona This gallery offers a wide variety of items ranging from prints to historical drawings and from frames to ceramics. The space is decorated with thousands of ancient volumes and a unique Naturalia exposition.

Primo Marella Gallery Now world-renowned, it opened its doors in 1993. Once specialised in Western Art, it has now become one of the most important galleries to showcase contemporary Chinese artists.

Chiesa di Santa Maria del Carmine The history of this church dates back to the 12th century but, following collapses and fires, its reconstruction ended in 1880. At that point the façade was built, offering an example of imaginative interpretation of Lombardy’s gothic style.

Oratorio sefardita-persiano Noam - This oratory can be found on the edge of the exclusive Jewish Quarter in Milan. Designed in 1986 by architect Eugenio Gentili Tedeschi, it’s inspired by traditional Jewish settlements.
