Milan is known as the capital of fashion and is not surprising, given that some of the best designers in the world (Gucci, Prada, Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana), have their headquarters in the city. In addition, this Italian city is full of great monuments, palaces, one of the Gothic cathedrals largest in the world, the famous La Scala opera, and many other worthy to admire attractions. That is why it offers the perfect combination of history, culture and style. However, we can not forget the Italian character is very extroverted and they love to go out and have fun, so we will also find perfect to go with friends for a drink or to spend a wonderful evening with your partner. Probably the most popular to go to have a drink or for dinner area is the Navigli area. Located between two canals, it is filled with pubs, bars and restaurants. The nearest metro station is Porta Genova, and in the area you can enjoy a pleasant walk along Via Dante that take you up to Colonne di San Lorenzo, the most famous Roman ruins in Milan.

On the other hand, if you want still more centrally, the best option is Brera. The nearest metro station is Lima and, although it is true that it is not the cheapest area of the city, is perfect for a romantic evening or to enjoy an environment with more class. From the Cathedral, Duomo, you can take a walk until you reach Parco Sempione, the largest park in the city centre, that practically can be considered the gardens of the Castello Sforzesco, an ancient medieval castle which now houses various museums and art galleries. From the Castle you will quickly reach to Brera, where you will find good restaurants and cocktail bars. If what you want is something more than run and you want to go to a club, the most recommended are Atomic Bar (which is open until 04: 00 a.m. every Thursday) and Plastic, both with good music and good atmosphere. Is true that Milan is not a cheap city, it is possible to find cheap accommodation thanks to Milan hostels. The hostels are the economical alternative to hotels and often offer the same services, from private rooms and breakfast until Internet access and laundry service. For this reason they can become the perfect choice to save on accommodation without compromising on quality.
