12 free things to do in Milan

Who said that there aren't things to do for free in Milan? Here you can find a list of 12 things to do without even opening your pockets!
We suggest you visit them all:


City Life

General information:
An innovative housing complex is being erected in the district that once hosted the city trade fair north-east of Milan. The new area is characterised by a modern aesthetic and functional style and, as well as residential areas, CityLife will provide commercial, entertainment and service facilities that will make the complex a vibrant area and provide round-the-clock amenities. Thanks to the new Metro line 5 stations it will also be well served by public transport links.
The new district encircles a large public park of 170,000 m2 designed to be used by all citizens thanks to the incorporation of bicycle and pedestrian paths and to its wide confines which join up directly with surrounding urban areas. The park will be a green lung that will integrate with the existent parks in the north-west area of the city contributing to the oxygenation of the air and restoring the balance of the urban environment.
At the centre of the district stand the imposing Tre Torri (Three Towers) office blocks, landmarks of the project that significantly contribute to reshaping the city skyline. Designed by Arata Isozaki (Isozaki Tower, 220mts), Zaha Hadid (Hadid Tower, 170mts) and Daniel Libeskind (Libeskind Tower, 150mts), the buildings stand out for their cutting-edge technology and for the innovative materials employed. The first two towers have already gained the Leed Gold pre-certification rating.
The five residential areas being developed were designed by Zaha Hadid and Daniel Libeskind, architects of international fame; on one side they face the park and on the other Via Spinola, Via Senofonte, Piazzale Giulio Cesare and viale Berengario. The apartments were designed following criteria that enable the optimisation of energy use and respect for the environment, plus, they are all Class A certified.

Anecdotes and curiosities:
CityLife is a completely pedestrianised area, the largest car-free zone in Milan and one of the most extensive in Europe; traffic and parking are at basement levels only.
It can also boast being a zero-emission neighborhood without gas-fired boilers or other sources of combustion. At CityLife the primary source of energy is water: both for district heating and the use of heat pumps fed from groundwater sources.
All the CityLife buildings have high energy performance and photovoltaic panels on the roof contribute to the energy needs of systems and communal areas.

Useful details:
CityLife can be reached with the red Metropolitana line from the Buonarotti, Domodossola, Amendola-Fiera and Lotto stops and, in the near future, with line 5, stops Domodossola, Tre Torri (right inside the district) and Portello.

Albrecht Durer and the Renaissance between Germany and Italy

The exhibition highlights the rich artistic relationship between Southern Europe and Northern Europe. Come see Dürer’s influential work at Palazzo Reale - until June 24th.




The Velasca tower

The Velasca Tower is a celebrated landmark of the Milanese skyline, a symbol of the city’s rush towards development and economic growth in the post-war years. It was built by the BBPR Study between 1956 and 1958, in an area heavily damaged by the war’s bombings, just a few paces away from the Duomo. The tower expresses the strength and self-confidence of Italian Rationalist architecture in the reconstruction years and blends tradition and innovation thanks to the advanced technical solutions that were a trademark of engineers of the time. While the building was built with a view to the future, it doesn’t forget the past and knowingly looks back to the Sforza Castle, of which it recalls the colors and materials.

CityLife shopping district 

CityLife is Milan’s future: set among some of the most lively and historic districts, it looks forward to becoming the city’s new pulsating heart.

The CityLife shopping district comprises three areas: the shopping gallery on two levels (The Mall) the great central square (The Square) and the open air commercial area (The Street). Together, these house more than 100 activities, including 80 shops, 20 bars and restaurants, a supermarket, a fitness & wellness gym and a multiplex movie theater, making up Italy’s largest commercial area.

mam logo

Milan is ready to host the International Festival of Ancient Music. Now in its 12th edition, the festival has become a classic highlight of Milan’s summer. The concerts, from June 3rd to August 23rd, will be hosted in various theatres and in some of our most beautiful churches, where it will be possible to listen to music composed by - among others - Bach, Pergolesi, Corelli and Mozart. Moreover, on the occasion of the 350th anniversary of Francois Couperin’s birth, two concerts will be dedicated to the French composer’s work: his composition for harpsichord and the Lezioni sulle tenebre per il martedì santo.

The festival is a different way of discovering Milano and its musical identity.

The exhibit for this year is dedicated to the history of Italian design and hosts works that have become, during the years, icons of the style of our country.

Milan joins leisure and culture.

Milan and Leonardo da Vinci: a special relationship that generated masterpieces and pioneering projects. Young Leonardo came to the court of Milan to find employment and seek his fortune: in more than 20 years, he left an indelible mark in the fields of art and science. No other city was gifted with his presence for such a long time, or was the recipient of such a great part of his influence. On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of his death, Milano celebrates his legacy hosting the project Leonardo 500, with a rich programme of exhibitions and experiences for the whole length of 2019.

The main event will be, on May 2nd 2019, the opening of Sala delle Asse in the Castello Sforzesco. The room, painted by Leonardo, has been renovated: once the scaffoldings are removed visitors will have the chance to admire closely the rendering of the rocks, the exuberant foliage and previously undiscovered traits revealed by the restoration work. The Castle will also host a multimedia itinerary allowing for a full immersion in fifteenth and sixteenth century Milan.

Palazzo Reale will add to its busy programme two great exhibitions: Il meraviglioso mondo della natura prima e dopo Leonardo (“The wonderful world of nature before and after Leonardo”) and La cena di Leonardo per Francesco I (Leonardo’s Supper for Francis I) where the copy in tapestry of Leonardo’s Last Supper , commissioned by the French Court, will be on loan from the Vatican Museums for the first time ever.

The National Museum of Science and Technology “Leonardo da Vinci” renovates its gallery dedicated to Leonardo’s models and machines with a new major project, alongside the exhibition - “Leonardo da Vinci’s Parade” in which models and frescos are displayed on the stage of the museum in an uncommon combination of art and science.

Many other locations in Milan will host new projects and events, from Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, with new exhibitions of the Codex Atlanticus, to San Siro Racecourse, with Leonardo’s majestic horse about to become a model for contemporary artistic expression. Milano and Leonardo in 2019 are the occasion to celebrate history and the past in order to nurture the future the city is looking forward to.




The La Scala Opera House and the world’s most celebrated corps de ballet join their forces for a great month of performances. The Moscow Ballet of the Bolshoi Opera House is hosted by La Scala for two shows: the classical “La Bayadère” in Yuri Grigorovich’s version and the awarded “The Taming of the Shrew”, choreography by Jean-Christophe Maillot, with music by Dmitrij Shostakovich.
These shows renew the cooperation between two historical institutions: the last time was in September 2017, when La Scala was on tour at the famous Moscow theatre.
Among the shows scheduled for September a special mention goes to Ali Babà e i quaranta ladroni (Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves) the final Opera by Luigi Cherubini, a world-class production built on an educational project in which the young talents of the Accademia Teatro alla Scala join famed director Liliana Cavani, well-known to La Scala audiences.
