Taking a quick walk through the streets of Milan while thinking about training for some of the autumn marathons...

Our departure point is the always magical Brera, with the sparkling new windows of MiLaura in Corso Garibaldi. From there we head straight towards Via Marsala, where the Utopia Bookshop always welcomes us in with a thousand suggestions.

Unblemished and without fear we continue on to take an initial spin into the world of High Tech: a historic concept store that has shown that it knows how to reinvent itself over the span of years, and which has helped us to grow as citizens of the world!

Next we turn towards Central Station and stop for a Chinese dumpling the way it should be made at MuDimSum, before finishing surrounded by the beauty and culture of history at the Shoah Memorial, because knowledge is freedom!

Eating in Milan

Located in the Central Station area, MUdimsum immediately became renowned for its fabulous steamed dumplings and Sunday brunch. It really is the dimsum that Working Girl Melanie Griffith went mad for way back in the eighties! The fillings are flawless, and they are perfectly cooked with a full and dense texture. Don’t forget to try the bao — the classic Chinese steamed buns — which can surprise and delight us with their sweet and sour stuffed pork filling or mixed vegetables in shrimp sauce. They are a delight for both the eyes and the palate!  Unfilled buns are called “mantou”, learn something new every day! Airy environs with extreme charm.Via Aminto Caretto no.3
