Trattoria Trippa

Italian restaurant
Via Giorgio Vasari, 1, 20135 Milano MI, Italy
Trattoria Trippa

"Milan is not the best food city in Italy, but there are a couple of restaurants that are really worth it. There's one called Trippa, which means ‘tripe.’ They do quite a lot of offal stuff, but don't let that deter you. It's got a great wine list. It’s my favorite restaurant in Milan."

Villa Necchi Campiglio

Art museum
Via Mozart, 14, 20122 Milano MI, Italy
Villa Necchi Campiglio

"Villa Necchi [Campiglio] was inI Am LoveandHouse of Gucci.It’s an incredible house that you need to see from a design perspective."

David PRIOR

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Shopping mall
P.za del Duomo, 20123 Milano MI, Italy
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

"The Galleria is a cliché but it's where you should go first. You look up at those windows and the light coming in, and it's just magical."

David PRIOR

Bagni Misteriosi

Public swimming pool
Via Carlo Botta, 18, 20135 Milano MI, Italy
Bagni Misteriosi

"I like quirky stuff too. There's a big public pool called Bagni Misteriosi. It's not the most beautiful pool, but if it's a really hot day and you want to escape, that’s fun. It's also in this incredible art nouveau building, which is extraordinary."

David PRIOR

Salone del Mobil

Furniture fair
Corso Italia, 20017 Rho MI, Italy
Salone del Mobil

"Salone del Mobil is the most important aesthetic week in the world, by far. Every little garage, courtyard or gallery is full of design pop-ups — all the creative spaces become activated."
