Hey guys, in this post, I will tell you about the most Instagrammable spots in Milan. I just came back from Milan and Bergamo, where I’ve spent a fantastic weekend and went to explore the most photogenic locations and instagrammable places in both cities. Even though the weather wasn’t the best on the second day, I still enjoyed the trip a lot and discovered a lot of amazing places for this Instagram guide to Milan and Bergamo.

If you haven’t been to Milan before, I recommend taking this 3-hour private guided tour around Milan!

How to combine Milan and Bergamo in one trip?

The reason why I combined Milan and Bergamo in one post is that Bergamo is so close to Milan and you can literally reach it in 45 minutes. We bought a very affordable ticket from London to Bergamo (check the prices and availability for the flights to Bergamo and Milan here) and stayed overnight in Mercure Bergamo. We spend Saturday morning exploring gorgeous Bergamo and then hopped on a train to Milan. You can buy train tickets online here >

In Milan, we stayed in this cosy and stylish hotel called NU Hotel Milano, very close to the metro and the city centre as well. NU Hotel was very photogenic and while it’s probably not one of the most Instagrammable hotels in Milan, it’s very stylish and has some photogenic spots inside (e.g. hallway on the 5th floor and the view from the restaurant on the 6th floor).

Instagrammable hotels in Milan

If you’re looking for Instagrammable and overall very beautiful hotels in Milan and you don’t have significant budget restrictions, you might want to take a look at Townhouse Galleria and Armani Hotel Milan.

If you’re new to this blog, I should probably mention that I’m obsessed with Instagrammable places. Here, on Tripsget, you can find guides to the most Instagrammable places literally all around the world: London, Edinburgh, Istanbul, NYC, Paris, Tokyo, Iceland, Seychelles and more.

In this post, I will mention famous landmarks, Instagrammable restaurants, coffee spots and cafes in Milan and charming photogenic streets.

Are you planning to do a little bit of sightseeing in Milan as well? I recommend buying Milan City Card that gives you entrance to the most landmarks in Milan and helps you to save money!

Okay, let’s get started with the amazing Instagrammable spots in Milan (Bergamo part is below)

1. The streets and shops of Brera

If you can only visit one district of Milan, let it be Brera. Brera is all about colourful houses, cosy shops, excellent restaurants and photogenic spots. Just look at this beautiful flower stall – it’s definitely worth taking a photo. ​

2. LuBar

Via Palestro, 16

One of the most Instagrammable locations in Milan is LuBar. It’s gorgeous inside with a lot of attention to details. It’s also one of the best-rated desert and cocktail places in Milan so it could be very very busy. If you want to take good photos there without any crowds, head there very early in the morning as around 4 pm on the weekend it’s already packed!

3. Coffee shop Pause

Via Federico Ozanam, 7

Another pretty coffee place in Milan is called Pause. Located close to the Lima metro station, this coffee shop is tiny but very stylish. The price for a coffee is also unbelievably low (compared to London).

​4. The flower shops of Milan

Multiple locations, e.g. Brera

Milan has so many great photogenic flower shop that I just couldn’t stop taking photos of them. A lot of them are located near Brera which is also the number one place of this guide to the most Instagrammable places in Milan. However, there are quite a few near the Duomo as well.

​5. Cafe Pavé

Via Felice Casati, 27

The place where we had to queue for a while is called Pavé. It’s a coffee/dessert place where you can either eat coffee with dessert or even order something more substantial (they serve brunch there). We really feel for their fruit and yoghurt tarts, and they were terrific. Coffee was also really really good there, so it’s worth queuing for a while to be able to eat at Pave!

6. Corso Como

10 Corso Como

Another wonderful photo location in this Instagram guide to Milan is the famous department store, Corso Como. Located next to the Garibaldi metro station, Corso Como is the iconic and legendary place. While the shop itself is beautiful, it’s not a photo location per se, however, the cafe on the first floor is insanely pretty and photogenic even in winter!

​7. Duomo

What kind of guide to the best photo location in Milan wouldn’t include the famous Duomo? The iconic cathedral in Milan is magnificent and remarkable and the best views of it you can see from the Terrazza Aperol nearby or from the square in front of it. If you want some outstanding photos without many people, you will have to wake up at 7 am! Planning on visiting the Duomo as well (including going to the famous rooftop terrace?) – you can buy the tickets online here >

8. Fancytoast

Via Vittor Pisani, 13

Another place with a good idea and lovely interior is the Fancytoast. Located near the central station, Fancytoast is a place for people to have lunch (mostly for people working in the area). While I wasn’t a fan of their toasts, I must admit that they looked pretty. If the photo is what you want, then you can go ahead and order the most photogenic toast.

9. Navigli

Navigli is a beautiful area located outside the city centre of Milan, however, it gets very crowded on Sundays because of the Sunday Flea market. Navigli resembles Venice a little bit because of its canals and bridges, which makes it an excellent location for photos in Milan.

10. Starbucks reserve

Via Cordusio, 3

Starbucks opened its very store in Italy just a few months ago, and it decided to go big – they opened a flagship Starbucks reserve just a few hundreds of meters away from Duomo, and it looks insanely photogenic!

​11. Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II

Another iconic photo location in Milan is Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II located on the right side from the Duomo. Just as the Duomo, it gets insanely crowded and in order to get a good photo there, you need to wake up VERY early.

​12. Yellow trams of Milan

The traditional yellow trams of Milan could be really photogenic if you catch them at sunset and in a really beautiful location, for example. Try to find an old yellow tram as it looks best in the photos. I caught this one in Brera and I also saw some very close to the Duomo.

13. Rosa & Co cafe & bar

Corso Garibaldi, 16

Another pretty pink spot (almost as LuBar but not quite as impressive) is Rosa & Co cafe and bar located very close to Duomo and the Instagrammable Brera district of Milano. You can either visit Rosa & Co for a coffee or even grab a cocktail in the evening.

​14. The view from the tallest clock tower at the Piazza Vecchia

The entrance costs 5 euros, and you don’t even have to climb up, all that you need to do is just to take the lift up. The views from the clock tower at the Piazza Vecchia in the Citta Alta is just insane. If you’re lucky and it’s sunny, you will immediately fall in love in Bergamo!

15. Castello San Vigilio

Bergamo is the place for marvellous views. If you take another funicular up to the Castello San Vigilio, you will see the Citta Alta, Citta Bassa and the surroundings of Bergamo and the views are breathtaking. The funicular costs just 1.3 euros which is very affordable, so even you’re visiting Bergamo only for a couple of hours, don’t hesitate to get there.

​16. Little shops and restaurants of Bergamo

The shops and cafes in Bergamo are charming. You can find all sorts of delis, bakeries and even photogenic beer and vine shops. It’s now up to you and your creativity to take some photos with these beautiful storefronts.

​17. Cappella Colleoni

One of the most beautiful places in Bergamo to take a photo of is, undoubtedly, the Cappella Colleoni. The best place to take a photo of it is literally a spot in front of it and even around 12 pm on Saturday there are not that many people, so you can take a good photo.
