After coffee I would stroll through the narrow streets of the old town. I love the '5 vie' area with its many artisan shops, antique dealers and concept stores. I can’t pass by Funky table (from 'the 5 shops for designer items' list) without holding halt in front of the shop window. I always feel like a little girl in a toy shop here. During the Salone del Mobile this part of town is very peaceful; the old car-parking nearby hosts expositions of young designers.
On a perfect day like this, one should also visit the Fondazione Achille Castiglioni (it's included in the list of '5 places for design lovers'). The entrance used to be right across of the offices of Condé Nast Traveller and Vogue Italia. When I worked there, I was always surprised not to see long lines of visitors waiting to get in this wonderful museum - it's a truly enchanting place. Just a few steps further you'll find the Palazzo della Triennale, where there's always some large-scale exposition going on, yet the atmosphere is very relaxed and of course international. It's also a good place for a pit stop: the garden is a lovely space for a rest, or you can have lunch in the brand new Social Pizza space. For a drink with a view, head to the roof. Here you'll find the Osteria con Vista (it's included in the book in the list with 5 places for a drink with a view). The large windows offer impressive views over the Sempione Park up to the skyscrapers of Porta Nuova."
