The GoldenQuarter
To get lost on the golden path in Milan is no difficult task. Well, not literally, but you may be swept away in the golden quarter, which is bordered by the Piazza della Scala, the Via Montenapoleone, the Via Sant Andrea and the Via della Spiga. Everything inside this illustrious quarter has been turned into gold. Fashion gems from Dolce, Armani, Prada, Kenzo, Valentino and Louis Vuitton, just to name a few, are all here to be found! This is the definitive mecca for shoppers, designers and fashionistas. What you don't see here is junk. The flea-market of the vanities has a price range from the pain barrier to private insolvency. Which means that the golden credit card is your best bet to survival here. Those who can't afford to take part in the festivities here should nonetheless take a stoll through and press their nose against the display windows and marvel at the exquisite items inside. For those that are lucky, you might just catch the end of summer sales. A pair of shoes from Roestti may still cost a fortune, but it won't hurt so much.

Grand Hotel
The Grand Hotel would never boast about it, but it does modestly point out that Guiseppe Verdi once lived here for over 20 years. Pictures and sketches of him, along with other hommages are inconspicuously scattered throughout the hotel, just in case you wanted to ask.   The close proximity to the Milano Skala means that the hotel may be full of the who's who of the opera scene. Considered as Milan's oldest hotel, the Grand Hotel has lots to offer and tastefully features many artefacts from it's 150-year history. A Chiase lounge from the 19th century and stucco work on the high ceilings compliment the granite flooring and oriental carpet. Art-decó meets Art Nouveau and impresses with the noble furnishings from a time where compartments were still in.   The wallpaper in every room exudes charm, but the modern touch has been lent to a few areas after the latest renovation: the fitness centre hosts the latest in high-tech machines and the conference rooms, named after Ruccini and Verdi, boast all the latest mod-cons. And whilsts we are on the topic, the uncountable pieces of art and vases placed in the suites are, you guessed it, dedicated to Verdi. Double rooms are available from 315 euros per night.

Nights at the Mus
The dinosaurs come alive in the middle of the night. Well, maybe at the movies. Despite the absence of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, Milan's Nights at the Museum still has lots to offer! The concept is: during the day everyone goes shopping. At night, theres still plenty of time for culture. To drum up demand for the cultural gems of the city, the local government has complimented the opening times of Gucci and Co. and takes on the responsibility for the evening program. There are plenty of concerts, performances and workshops on offer, along with discussions and workshops. For those that aren't full of pasta and Prada, should head straight for one of the following venues; Castello Sfozesco, Acquario Civico, Museo del Risorgimento, the Planetarium or the Museum of Natural History. Maybe it's wise to bring a large bone with you, just in case you encounter a live dinosaur...

L'Elephante
Too many cooks spoil the broth, as the saying goes. This strangely doesn't ring true at L' Elephante, even though the mishmash of styles should hurt the eyes. Not by far! There is no stool that matches the next and cous cous is a bit out of place next to bruschetta, but it is exactly this open approach to the world and style that makes this venue so unique.   Minimalistic deco with tunes from the 80's, Africa meets Barbarella and zucchini meets corriander. And it sets the scene: the clientele are colourfully mixed. Manolos and Doc Martens, along with feather boas can all be seen in a single view. The barkeeper even mixes everything together in the one glass. What results will either knock you out or could well be the best aperitif in the city. You can't say exactly. But it is definitely exciting!
