  • Let me be clear: If you think that it is a neighborhood, or like Blade Runner, or how they imagine the racists, stay home. The area is beautiful, well maintained and comfortable. The main street, via Paolo Sarpi, is gorgeous. You can find everything from clothing to electronics, to food. Behold, the food: you think about your Chinese under the House, but that's the typical cuisine of Zhejiang. Here you will find something else: Here you will find the real hot spot of Sichuan, Beijing. Here are the soups with noodles and vegetables, "military soups" offal of pork or duck. What I'm saying? do you remember the movie or anime, where you eat on the fly a cup of pork broth? or corners where you find fry bread and boiled eggs? Here, just like that. A wonderful experience. You can go into stores and browse, there is the East Store, on the corner with via Bramante, or the supermarket "Hyper Hu" (I swear!) within the "Oriental Mall", always via Sarpi. A quiet and cozy, full of kind people and with many traits. If you go to Milan, a leap you have to. Oh, if you arrive with the M5, stop "island", just on the sidewalk there is a uncontroversial direction indication.

  • Do not waste time going to this place, not worth worth, few local and food mainly, nothing quaint, no voucher or a photo that is away from the Center.

  • A shop as the other, clothes are all the same. Everything in profound design, centrally located
