With the pandemic still delaying travel plans, travel guides offer a chance to dream and plan for the future. Martin’s city guide to Milan doesn’t disappoint. This beautiful pocket guide expertly covers Milan’s fashion scene and designers (Armani, Prada, Dolce, Gabbana, Cavalli), as well as food, lodging, museums, cultural sights, and nearby getaways. Milan is one of the fashion centers of the world, with legendary Fashion Weeks. Martin covers a wide range of shopping opportunities, from high-end designers to vintage shops, so most travelers will find something for them, no matter the size of their wallet. Ample attention is paid to men’s and women’s fashion, and children’s as well. The guide is laid out by neighborhood, with attention to capturing the unique culture and beauty of each, plus the essentials in each area. And what is travel without great food? Martin covers that too, guiding travelers to a variety of cafés, and places for lunch, aperitivo, and dinner. Brimming with full-color photos, maps, stories, and history, this guide is so much more than just a list of places.
VERDICT Perfect for fashion lovers, armchair travelers, and those making plans to visit Milan.
