Visit Porta Nuova district


Let's start the visit from Moscova street, easy to reach also with public transportation.
We will stroll along the renovated corso Garibaldi, quiet shopping area in the daytime and lively avenue for the milanese nightlife. We will have a look at Eataly's largest store in the city - and of course we can enter to buy some exquisite italian grocery!
Let's now dedicate to contemporary architecture: the district of Porta Nuova is a sampler of creativity and innovation and piazza Gae Aulenti is the heart of this area. We will see the most famous italian skyscrapers, the Unicredit Tower, the Vertical Forest. . . And we will discover why in Milan there is a place called "Isola", the Island.
We will then end the tour at Palazzo Lombardia, headquarters of the regional government.
