Ventura Lambrate District has been designated as a temporary design district. It is totally cured and dedicated to the design themes of budding designers’ experimentation. It is located in the northeast of Milan, so it is perfect for your Milan Tour Guide. The formerly abandoned 9 spaces of the Magazzini Raccordati via Ferrante Aporti, originally home to significant local warehouses, provide now a visually expressive experience for everyone interested in visiting.

Milan Gems

Visiting Duomo’s Rooftop is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and you should include it in your Milan Tour Guide Calendar. Walking on the roof of the spectacular Gothic Cathedral, you will be able to observe the exquisite marble statues and church spires while appreciating the breathtaking skyline that overlooks the entire city.

Lombardia Palace is Brabbu’s Milan Tour Guide‘s next stop. The Lombardy regional council is housed in Palazzo Lombardia, which was designed by the famous architect Pei Cobb Freed. Its secret is the top-floor Belvedere, which offers a 360-degree panorama of the city. On clear days, the vista can extend all the way to the Alps as they pass across Lake Como.

The next place in Brabbu’s Milan Tour Guide is the Arcobaleno district, a street lined with colourful terraced houses that transform the street into a miniature Milanese Burano in the “Arcobaleno district,” as it is commonly referred to. These dwellings were developed and built in the nineteenth century by a building cooperative for the area’s employees. The goal was to construct simple, low-cost dwellings. Today, they are visibly exclusive, yet this does not diminish the joy of visiting this vibrant street.
