Who said that Milan is not a family friendly city? There are so many attractions that we decided to make a list of 5 things not to miss if you are in Milan with children. Among museums, parks and different activities there is no time for boredom.
A visit to MUBA – children’s museum
Welcome to a place created just for children in the beautiful surroundings of the Rotonda della Besana, where the slogan is “NOT touching is forbidden“. The little ones will have fun between ludic and educational activities during which they can experiment and learn, while you can relax with a drink in the charming bistro.
A walk from the Sforzesco Castle to the Sempione Park
The castle is one of the symbols of Milan and it is also one of the largest castles in Europe. Here you can feel like a knight, fighting with enemies to rescue a beautiful princess. Someone will be happy to know that inside the castle there are 14 museums, while the others will enjoy a relaxing walk inside Parco Sempione, the largest city park.
An afternoon at the Planetarium
In this city where (almost) everything is possible you can also see the stars during the day… You don’t believe us? Just go to the Civic Planetarium Ulrico Hoepli, sit back and admire the starry sky that moves around you, showing planets and constellations… an astronomical experience that will enchant the young and old ones!
A tram ride
You can not visit Milan without experience the thrill of a tram ride. For a truly unforgettable experience we recommend you to take the tram number 1: you’ll travel with an ordinary ticket on a historic tram, which will take you from the Central Station to the Cathedral through a short city tour between Porta Venezia, Porta Nuova and Piazza della Scala. At the end of the experience try to find all the differences between these trams and the modern ones.
An historic toy shop
Just ask a “Milanese” what are the favorite places of his childhood and everyone will answer: Nano Bleu! Our toy shop has a long history over three generations long and with this atmosphere it’s easy to feel like a movie character. The stuffed animals in the shop window will invite you to enter in a magical world of traditional and modern toys for everyone. The perfect end for a fantastic day with kids in the beautiful Milan!
