SAS Crew tips: Milan

Milan bathes in its justifiable reputation for being the fashion capital of Italy, but there’s far more to enjoy than just shopping in this wonderfully historic, diverse city. SAS flight attendant Ejner Søjdis found out for himself the first time he went there, and he still loves it just as much today. Here are some of his tips.

Navigli

Navigli is my absolute favorite area of Milan. I love strolling along the banks of the canals all around the district, and when you’re in need of refreshment, there are lots of traditional cafés and restaurants to choose from.

Teatro Alla Scala

Milan’s world-famous opera, first opened in 1778. Some of the best known singers in the world have performed here. First of all, it’s an impressive building, both on the inside and out, and I’ve been lucky enough to see some of the world’s best operas here.

The Last Supper

Another must-do in the city is to see Leonardo da Vinci’s world-famous painting The Last Supper, in the former Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. I was surprised how big it is in real life. Quick tip – it is highly recommended to book tickets in advance, as it is always popular.

Ratana

This is a great Italian restaurant with lots of Milanese classics on the menu. Go for the Risotto alla Milanese.

Duomo di Milano

No trip to the city is complete without a visit to the main Milan Cathedral that took nearly six centuries to complete. When you go, take a walk on the roof to enjoy the views of Milan and appreciate the beautiful architecture of the church.

Bar Basso

This is a historical cocktail bar that has become a real Milanese institution over the years, best known for the Negroni Sbagliato that was invented here. The Italian tradition of apertive is awesome. Come here, buy a cocktail and try lots of different dishes before heading out for dinner.
