Planning a holiday or a trip to Milan with pets? Here are Hotel Galles’ recommendations for a stress-free trip.

Pet Friendly Parks in Milan

There are numerous city parks with areas equipped for animals. Among the best, there is certainly Mobility Dog Park, a space designed for fun and mobility of dogs in the Indro Montanelli Gardens, near the Hotel Galles. The park has seven facilities for play and training, in which your dog can launch into wild acrobatics.

Even in the dogs’ area of Acquario di Parco Sempione dogs are free to play and stretch their legs. Here the green space is divided into two separate areas, with games tailored to small and large animals.

Pet Friendly Bars and Restaurants in Milan

Milan is the Italian city with the highest number of places open to animals. Here are three pet friendly bars and restaurants to mark on your diary.

Un posto a Milano, Via Privata Cuccagna 2

Un posto a Milano is the bistro of Cascina Cuccagna, a green area in the heart of Milan with organic cuisine and lots of local products. Here dog owners will find great meadows for their animal friends, where they can leave them free to roam and enjoy titbits specially made for them.

Locanda alla mano, Parco Sempione

What could be better than a snack after a walk in the park? If this applies to dogs and owners, then Locanda alla mano is the ideal place to stop. This welcoming kiosk is managed by the Contè cooperative, which takes care of the employment of young people with disabilities. The outdoor tables are perfect for relaxing with an aperitif, while Fido can quench his thirst from a large bowl at the entrance.

Valà, Via Daniele Crespi 14

Water bowls and a mat on which to rest are never lacking at Valà, a cheerful hipster-style café specialised in vegetarian and vegan cuisine. The bistro founded by Valentina and Laura is the ideal place for a pet-friendly lunch or dinner: don’t miss the special stuffed “crescentine”.

Pet Friendly Cinemas in Milan

At the movies with your dog? In Milan you can: every day the Cinemino near Porta Romana offers two screenings open to animals, indicated on the program with a special symbol. There is also a blanket for rest and a bowl for water, which make Cinebau a very special moment. You just need to decide who will pick a movie…
