Photographer in Milan
If you wish to have a photo shoot in Milan you can get all the details on this page. The prices are from 120 € per hour.
What to see in Milan
You can start your day in Milan from the morning in the heart of the city and why not!? It is so beautiful here and there are plenty of coffee shops with the smell of bakery that can wake up anyone. By the way, lots of cafes in Italy are open from the early morning. As for me, I like to grab a coffee with a croissant at 6-7 a.m. and start strolling along the empty morning streets of Milan.
The landmarks of Milan
First of all, you should definitely go to see Duomo. It is the main Catholic Cathedral of the city and a very well-preserved, extraordinary example of the flaming Gothic.
At day time the square in front of Duomo is full of tourists and Hindus trying to sell everything, from magnets to pigeon food.
But early in the morning, the square is almost empty. Since this is the best time for photo shoot on the background of Duomo, you can only come across some photographers.
Do you like observing cities from the height? Climb on top of the roof of Duomo. There is such a great view from there!
The price is 7 €, if you are ready to climb the stairs and 12 €, if you go by elevator.
You can get to the observation platform from 7 a.m. (sometimes from 8 a.m. depending on the season) till 7 p.m. The full tour around the cathedral usually takes 1- 2 hours.
And then, the next point should be Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the first Passages in Europe. It is located right next to Duomo and attracts tourists from all over the world with its shining window showcases.
The gallery is interesting not only in terms of shopping, but also due to its architecture, mosaic decorations and its glass dome.
Right here, in the Gallery of Vittorio Emanuele II, you can make a wish by scrolling on your heel on the mosaics on the floor.
Fashion lovers can also visit the "fashion quarter" or "golden triangle" formed by Milan fashion streets - Monte Napoleone, Alessandro Manzoni, Corso Venezia and via della Spiga. All the most famous boutiques are located here: Chanel, Valentino, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Prada and many others. If you come to Milan for shopping, you would have a completely different program, and here, you can just walk around and wonder at the showcases as a kind of museum of fashion and style.
When you are on the street via Alessandro Manzoni, mentioned above, you have to make a stop to look at La Scala Theater. There is a gift shop that sells everything related to this theater. Or you can also make a tour around La Scala Museum. It is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5: 30 p.m., the lunch break is from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
To have a snack, you can go to "Piz" in the city center. It is one of the favorite eating locations of the tourists and it gets empty immediately after lunch. They cook very well and there is a very cheerful atmosphere, but there is only pizza available, with very limited choice.
If you like pancakes with different fillings, you can go to "Piadineria Artigianale Pascoli".
When it comes to Aperol Spritz, without which I, personally, cannot imagine Italy, then, you should visit "Aperol Terrace" on the second floor of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II that with the view on Duomo.
The terrace is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

To all the gourmands, I can recommend one of the best restaurants in Milan - "Langosteria Cafe" on Galleria del Corso, 4 (which is a 5 min walk from Duomo). Here you can enjoy the freshest seafood and unique atmosphere. You need to book a table in advance on their website or by phone (+390276018167). The average bill for 2 persons with alcohol is about 300 €.
For the final impression, you can choose either going to Sempione Park (Piazza Sempione) or have a walk around the Brera district (Via Brera). Both locations are interesting in their own way. In the park you can buy an ice cream, feed the fish and lie on the grass to relax after your busy day. The second one will extend your active communication with Milan, as it is the most artistic area of the city and there is the Pinacoteca Brera there, one of the largest galleries in Milan. Both options are good in their own way, so, if you have time, you can visit them both.
As you сan see, it is really possible to see the top attractions of Milan even within one day!
