We asked our own Milan bloggers about their favorite independent Milan blogs & websites. Here’s a list of their tips in alphabetical order!
A Milano Puoi
A Milano Puoi talks about all things food and activities. As Francesca, herself puts it: “Restaurants, streets, hidden gardens and tips to live better in a difficult and controversial city, but surely full of wonderful opportunities.” The blog has an English version too for those who don’t understand Italian.
All The Pretty Birds
Tamu is more of a globetrotter than we are. Born in Jamaica, raised in New York, living in Milan. That’s quite the resume. She started out as a street-style photographer and that shows in All The Pretty Birds. The blog is a mixture of photography and style, of criticism and beauty, of spontaneity and clear-sightedness. It’s pretty clear how we feel about this one, no? Go have a look!
Conosco Un Posto
The bloggers at Conosco un Posto (English version here) believe that once a city has found a place in your heart you will always want to return to it. They try to show you the best and unique spots in the city so it can nest itself in your heart. You will find plenty of inspiration for places to eat and shop, but also interviews where locals tell you why they love their city so much!
Girl in Milan
Girl in Milan is a great blog about living, breathing, and exploring Milan. It has some great food recommendations for when you’re visiting the beautiful city, like real local Milanese food and typical Italian dishes that are worth trying. But besides great food recommendations, the blog also features some up-to-date event tips and day trips you can take to places around the city. It’s a great blog to check out if you’re in need of some tips or inspiration on what to do, eat and see when visiting Milan!
If you’re looking for a fun and interesting experience food-wise in the Italian city, then check out L’escalope Milanaise. This blog updates semi-regularly and has fun, interesting, and informative content about great places to eat. L’Escalope Milanaise is run by a French girl with a passion for food and interior design, which is totally reflected in the featured content.
Milan Daily Photo
Milan Daily Photo is a fun and interesting photoblog that follows this blogger’s journey throughout the city. Wherever they go, their camera follows. You’ll see places you’ve never heard of. And places you’ve seen a thousand times, but never paid attention to. And familiar spots put in a different perspective. Enjoy photos of the most visually stunning areas in Milan, while also planning on where to go and what to see in the city!
Milano Sguardi Inediti
If you want to discover hidden gems that even locals don’t always know about, Milano Sguardi Inediti is the blog for you! Elena is a social media manager by day and runs this amazing blog on the side. She writes about events, new start-ups, walking routes and so much more. Everything she writes is infused with stories from locals, exactly what we love over here! The blog is written in Italian but you can find the English translation here.
Truly a blog that has a little bit of everything. Where Milan is the blog you should check out if you need any kind of information about the city. It’s run by the local editors of Where Italia who want to provide readers with an authentic and local experience while in the city.
Appsolutelymilano is a blog by two very enthusiastic locals who’ve lived in Milan for over 20 years. They publish a mix of “to do” tips and useful info (like an overview of the best apps). And our favorite part: every week they update their “Right now in Milan” page with lots of cool new events. Very useful, as there’s limited English language coverage about events in Milan!
