- Because it is a metropolis, places in Milan close and open with ease that often impresses – and everything happens very quickly! A golden tip is: research on the place you want to visit and make sure it is open during your stay in the city; ah, it is also worth asking for locations at the reception of your hotel! In addition, why not, ask whether the hotel offers a rooftop; we often stay in hotels that offer it and we don’t even know it, so ask if they have a terrazza (or rooftop) or if they have locations with incredible views, which is not difficult to do!

1) The best bars with panoramic views in Milan: TERRAZZA GALLIA
In the best “I feel like I am in New York” style, despite being in the Lombard capital, for sure, Terrazza Gallia presents us with good food, drinks and a breathtaking view! Located on the seventh floor of the luxurious, historic and traditional Excelsior Hotel Gallia, the place is by far one of the most elegant in the city.
The view of the Central Station is surprising and the architecture around this unique place is breathtaking, especially as it offers us views of classic and modern buildings that blend into the horizon and delight our eyes! Chefs Vincenzo and Antonio Lebano, who sign the menu, offer aromas, colors, flavors and special presentations of all dishes, most of them inspired by the rich cuisine of Campania. Where is it? Piazza Duca d’Aosta, 9 – seventh floor.

It is impossible not to open our list with one of the symbols of Milan that has a passionate view of another Milanese symbol, the Duomo (Cathedral)! Terrazza Aperol is already known by both locals and tourists and is a delightful, charming, glam place that deserves your visit! Over the years, it has won over the hearts of those who sit at one of the tables in the place and find great service, and a view that deserves to be highlighted!
Terrazza Aperol is in the heart of the city, it is already an entity and offers us incredible concepts, shapes, flavors and designs of different drinks, both classic and innovative!

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

Every month a drink inspired by the garden enters the menu that they care for with such affection. With a 360 ° view of the city, from Brera to the skyscrapers of the new horizon ‘passing’ through the Duomo, the combination of ecologic and chic is impressive! Where is it? Via dell’Orso, 7.
