Never trust those who say that in Milan there are no green places. Well, to be honest it is partly true. Nonetheless I’m pretty proud of Parco Sempione. It’s not Hyde Park, nor is it Central Park, but still it’s quite an amazing park.
There are romantic small bridges, basketball courts, jogging and fitness walks, wide green lawns and vivid colors, but also bars and clubs. Especially during summer and spring you can enjoy all of it, there often are outdoor parties and a characteristic bar called Bar Bianco offers a nice option to have a good nighttime amongst nature.
In winter it is less busy but still it’s so close to Castello Sforzesco that it’s worth a visit anyway, let alone for the events set there, such as the Milano Film Festival. Anyhow my favourite period, besides during spring and summer, could be those twenty days during autumn when melancholic colors are in sight everywhere and the temperature is still merciful.
If that’s not enough the Piccolo Theatre is quite close too and around it there are plenty of bars to go to. If I have to think of an ideal day on a hot summer day it would be having a picnic there, a good book by my side and some friends. Then when it gets cooler hang out around Isola District or Navigli before heading to one of the many clubs in Milan. Have it your way: you won’t regret passing some time in Parco Sempione!
