Spend a Day in Milan with this Dog-friendly Itinerary

Updated: May 8

If, like Global Paws, you are road-tripping your way through Europe, you do not want to miss out on this Italian city!

Dog in Milan

Milan is one of the most dog-friendly cities that Global Paws have been to - and that's saying something! Dogs in Milan are welcome everywhere – shopping malls, tourist sites, restaurants and other public spaces.  So if you find yourself passing through, be sure to make a pit stop and head to Autosilo San Fedele near Duomo di Milano for valet parking and make a day of it! 

Dog in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is Italy's oldest active shopping gallery and a major landmark of Milan. Housed within a four-story double arcade in the centre of town.  This iconic shopping gallery is a visual feast with its elegant architecture, high-end boutiques, and charming cafes.  Take a leisurely stroll with your dog in the vibrant atmosphere and impressive glass dome and check out some of the luxury boutiques for some designer dog collars - it’s a must when in Milan - the fashion capital of Italy! 

Dog in Duomo di Milano

Bar Duomo

Admire the stunning Duomo di Milano whilst sipping an Aperol spritz at Bar Duomo, the staff are friendly and adore dogs.  Although the drinks were a little on the expensive side, the beautiful view makes the whole experience worthwhile.

Don't forget to enjoy the live music from the buskers in Piazza del  Duomo Milan city.

Dog in Grand Hotel et de Milan

Ristorante Don Carlos

The best restaurant in Milan, Ristorante Don Carlos, is located in the Grand Hotel et de Milan.  Classic Italian dishes served in a romantic, fine-dining atmosphere with old-fashioned decor.  The hotel and restaurant is extremely dog-friendly, and Global Paws CPO, Nala, was served a bowl of Italy's finest tap water first thing.

The whole experience from the place to the service from the staff, was just magical. For a few hours you will have felt as if you were catapulted into the melodic and elegant nineteenth-century atmosphere of Verdi, Puccini and the great operas.

For this experience alone, it is well worth the visit, yet there is even more! The exquisiteness of their selected culinary offerings, from the aesthetic plating to the courtesy and warm welcome of the dining room manager, Global Paws cannot wait to go back again!
