Italy, Milan Guide (B): 12 Cafes to Visit in Milan

The industrial capital of Italy and one of the world's fashion and business centers, today's Milan is teeming with chaotic urban rush on a daily basis.

Here are the top dozen of them!

Ostello Bello is adored by the young crowd of Milan. It is, in fact, a hostel in the center of the city, but is frequented by the locals for its cafe/bar lounge area. If you find yourself staying in a different hotel or hostel in Milan, do not worry, because Ostello Bello is just a short walk from the Duomo. The main seating area, just through the front doors, is a collage of wooden tables, bookshelves and the great exchange of cultures you hope to find at a fun, young hostel.
