MILAN ESSENTIALS - 10K

Runner on the ground - RANIERO

Milan is a vibrant city that offers a multitude of attractions for visitors year-round, including cultural festivals, art exhibitions, and numerous business opportunities. We will open up our Milan Essential pack right at the Duomo and we will soon jump to the famous skyscraper with the braces, Torre Velasca. Our next stop will be a quick glimpse at Santa Caterina Church and Ca’ Granda with its courtyard (let’s see if we can sneak inside, just for a pic… it’s gorgeous!), the current seat of the University of Milan.

Then, the two Churches of Santo Stefano and San Bernardino alle Ossa, with its ossuary, will come next. And after a fast slide through Piazza San Babila, time for some cruising through Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga, right by the Quadrilatero della Moda. And just across the street, the Quadrilatero del Silenzio, with its Liberty buildings and villas like Ca’ de L’Oreggia (whisper into the bronze ear and make a wish!) or Villa Invernizzi with its Pink Flamingos, is ready to unveil its hidden gems!

Then, just a green escape from the concrete jungle at the Giardini Pubblici, with the massive building of the Railway Central Station showing from afar as we pass Piazza della Repubblica, and we will reach Porta Nuova district in Piazza Gae Aulenti.

No visit to Milan is complete without indulging in the city’s famous “aperitivo” culture. Luckily, there are plenty of places to experience this beloved tradition. We will head to Corso Como, Porta Garibaldi, where you’ll find plenty of options for an authentic Milanese “movida” experience. Alternatively, why not sip your cocktail on the marble steps of the Arco della Pace, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center? If you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, the English-style Parco Sempione and Castello Sforzesco offer a peaceful retreat from the city. Stroll through the park’s tranquil ponds and lush greenery, but be warned – the resident squirrels might try to steal your snacks! 😊

No trip to the land of the Renaissance would be complete without experiencing the city’s rich artistic heritage. We’ll explore the bohemian district of Brera, home to the legendary Pinacoteca, and then to one of the world’s most renowned opera houses, Teatro Alla Scala. Dress to impress for an evening of ballet, and soak in the stunning architecture and world-class performances. Our final stop will be the Galleria, and then once again see the breathtaking view of the Duomo.

    Our own Milan grand prix

    Whilst the rest of Milan were waking to the Grand Prix, we were taken by Raniero on a sunrise run around Milan— which was a huge amount of fun and also very informative about Milan’s history and culture. We were also given loads of tips as to where to eat, what to do during our visit. This is an excellent way to enjoy both running and learning about a new place when travelling. I will be doing this every time I travel from now on!

    Our own Milano granprix!

    Gaynor Blankley

    We had a beautiful 10km run through Milan early on a Saturday morning as the sun came up and before most people were yet to open their eyes and head to the Grand Prix! The run was perfect as Raniero led us through most of the main sights of Milan and told us about the history and culture. We also got lots of tips for where to eat and things to do. I highly recommend a run tour when visiting a new city and this runtour with Raniero was a great start to our time in Milan

    Perfect start of the day

    Natalie

    It was a great run, a lot of fun and useful information! So glad I did it! We run a lot, saw a lot and took a lot of pictures. With a lot of insider information it was a perfect start of the day and of our Milano holidays. Thank you so much! Now I can spend the days here not as a foreigner, but as a (a little bit) local 😉
