Title: Milan
Post by: truthislie on April 29, 2018, 08:55:40 AM
I am going to be in Milano with a couple of friends to skate from May 18th. We will be there for 4 days and stay near the central train station which will be our home spot. Anybody has tips on skatespots and/or food recommendations? And is it really so sketchy with the pickpockets at the central train station. Iīm a bit worried about my camera...

Does someone know where the spot at 0:30 is and if its still skateable:

eat cheap but delicious pizza in the red light district
in restaurants owned by chinese. they put so much
cheese on your pizza that you get a mouth lock. so
damn good.  i do not know if our favourite restaurant
'pizza vagabundo' is still around but they were dope.

Thank you!

Cheese loaded mouth lock pizza sounds perfect and the spots look really nice.

If you have any more tips just keep em coming. Canīt wait to go!

I'm back from Milano.
I really had a good time there !

Here is a spot selection that might help you :

(you can click on the localisation to view on the map)

The city is really big, so we rented some bikes from the city.
There are some elctrical bikes if you want your legs to be OK to skate.

I was quite surprised by how fucked up Milano centrale is.
The landing on the two blocks is very difficult.

We went to that bar called TuttiFrutti that was pretty cool.
Also, chilling next to Darsena at night is cool.

Lot of hot looking girls, be ready !  8)

I can second that Stazione Centrale is harder to skate than it seems. What's really cool is that there's always a good vibe and people skating there.
Work brought me to Milan. I've been here for almost two weeks, two and a half more to go.
Any helpful recommendations are appreciated!

Does anyone know where to find good non-commercial techno/house/trance parties?
Went to Domenica Elettronica at Circolo Magnolia and liked it a lot. Moodymann killed it!
Last weekend I also checked out Social Music City. The music was great, but the party, location and the people there kinda sucked.
7€ for a shitty beer? C'mon!
