The city
Milan, the capital of Lombardy, has a population of 1.3 million people. It is the biggest industrial city of Italy with many different industrial sectors. It is a magnetic point for designers, artists, photographers and models. Milan has an ancient city centre with high and interesting buildings and palazzos, which is why so many people from all over the world want to see the city of glamour.
Nightlife Milan
When you think about Milan there is one thing that you don't have to forget: Milan is not only the capital of fashion, business, but it is also the city in which nightlife means much more than a simple drawn-out dinner. (See restaurants).
The main two areas to go out in Milan, are: around the Brera gallery and the Navigli area. Milan offers lively bars, restaurants and nightclubs, moreover some of them include live music, especially jazz music and some local bands. Clubbing starts at about 11.00 pm running to about 4 am, but if you want to be ready, start your nightlife with with the happy hour aperitifs, from about 18.00 on in one of the most famous bars and cafés. In milanese clubs the cost of a drink is about 7euro and several clubs have introduce a pay-as-you-leave-system. That is why you receive a ticket at the door that you can use for the cloakroom and it permits you to buy drinks and food. Do not loose this ticket because the fine is very high. Several clubs offer you dinner too, before the nightlife starts. This is an oppurtunity to join together food and live jazz music which is often played during dinner. At least but not the last think about your style because the most important point of going out in milan is to look your best! However if you want to have an alternative scene and less expensive, you should try the Centri Sociali with cheap or sometimes free entertainment as concerts and film showings. They also contain bars and vegetarian restaurants.
Milanese cuisine
Italy is, of course, widely known for its cousine. However, but some cheeses that go under the radar include tasty and sometimes spicy varieties like taleggio, stracchino, gorgonzola. In general, the most important things to try in Milan (and the whole of Lombardy) include milk, cream, butter, cheese. It may sound strange, but it's true. A great majority of the classic dishes consist of milk and cream, butter, mascarpone, cheese and ricotta, even the names of the towns, such as Crema and Cremona remind you cheese. However don't think that everything's the same and tastes the same: there is a huge variety in the rich cuisine of Milan. Rice tends to be more popular than pasta and, in fact, rice absorb more cheese butter and broth. Sometimes they even throw vegetables or meat into the mix. However, pasta is quite important here as well with dishes such as "tortelli di zucca", which is ravioli stuffed with pumpkin, and "pinzoccheri," which consists of buckwheat noodles cooked with potatoes cabbage and cheese. Don't forget the soups: "zuppa pavese" (broth with bread and eggs) and "zuppa di porri e bietole" ((made with leeks and swiss chard). Another typical meal is "polenta", topped with mushrooms or meat- a rich dish typically served during the winter. Finally, what about meat? Here you are "bresaola" dried beef; "carpaccio" thinly sliced raw beef; "arrosto" roast meat such as beef pork or veal and sausages. These meals are served with side dishes such as beans, mushrooms or salad.
