EAT AN ICE-CREAM
Of course, ice cream is one of the most summer foods out there. In this article we have recommended some of the best ice cream shops. But if you have already tried these we recommend Nosh, in Cadorna, where you can taste a very special lavender-flavored flavor.
GOING TO THE "IDROSCALO" OR SWIMMING POOL
With the hot weather comes the time to count the days until the vacations; to arrive ready for this moment you can sunbathe at the Idroscalo or drop by the Bagni Misteriosi, a swimming pool in the heart of the city.

Summer also offers the perfect excuse to discover new places. If you do not know where to go we recommend Como and Mantua in the first place, along with cities closer to Milan, such as Monza and Bergamo.
GOING TO A CONCERT
Summer is also the season for outdoor concerts, and if you are in Milan you also have plenty of choice. From international artists like the Rolling Stones or Alice Cooper, to Italian artists like Ghali and Jovanotti. Tip: If you are in Milan on June 28, you cannot miss the free concert organized by J-Ax and Fedez in Piazza del Duomo
