Just as Paris has Café de Flore and Venice has Florian, Milan also has its classic café. Located in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and historically a favorite watering hole of Verdi and Toscanini, this spot is a Milanese classic that is part café and part museum. Opened in 1867 at the time of the Galleria’s inauguration and known until recently as Zucca or Caffé Miani, Camparino (now in partnership with the Campari brand) boasts historic interiors with wonderful mosaics and antique cabinets. Among its claims to fame: King Umberto the First declared that it served the city’s best coffee, and many still concur with his pronouncement. The best tables are outside but don’t miss a peek at the interiors.
