@marchesi1824: The first stop for any self‑respecting sciura is a posh breakfast at Marchesi in Via Monte Napoleone with a cappuccino & brioche. No time for breakfast? No problem. You can still have your late afternoon aperitivo there completed by olives, chips, and tramezzini.

@lubar: Lunch at this super chic and romantic Sicilian bistrot is a must for any aristocratic sciura, especially this time of year when the warmth of Spring directly penetrates the windows of this 19th century glasshouse of Napoleon’s neoclassical Villa Reale. You can’t leave LùBar without their artisanal EVOO & chocolate covered almonds.

@casaciprianimilano: The exclusive members‑only club that’s opened in New York in 2021 has also landed in Milan. The Cipriani legacy of old school luxury and tradition continues to live on with this umpteenth location that is indeed what any sciura would call home. Made in Italy hospitality is matchless.

@armanihotel_milano: Sciuras like to treat themselves, and so should you. The Armani/SPA at Armani Hotel might be just the perfect place to start from for a restorative and relaxing treatment comprised of saunas, steam baths, and a wide range of hot teas and cold fruit infusions.

@giacomo_milano: The IT lunch spot now favored by international models and influencers alike, Giacomo has been every sciura’s preferred choice long before the hype, since 1958. Classy and sophisticated, the restaurant will make you step back in the early 20th century Milan.

@langosteria: The best seafood restaurant in town, La Langosteria attracts a lot of sciuras who want that quick yet healthy dinner made of oysters, tuna carpaccio, and a fresh catch of the day—to keep it caj.

@gucci: Need we say more? You cannot not hit the Gucci store in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II for a crazy shopping spree. Learn from the sciuras and get yourself that Jackie bag.

@10corsocomo: It closed down in New York, but Milano still has it. 10 Corso Como has been for 30 years the concept store to be, a fantastic and highly selective mix of art, fashion, design, publishing and cuisine. Every sciura’s grandchild has probably received a Christmas present or birthday gift from this store.
