The ❤️ of Milano's Chinatown

This is the main street of Milano's Chinatown. Its a semi-pedestrian street with many stores to buy trinkets and such. Good dumplings and a pretty walk.

Via Paolo Sarpi is the axis of the Milanese Chinatown showing a corner of China maintained and clean in Milan. The shops are all Chinese and the walk is assured by limited road circulation to residents. Many are the places to find Chinese and Asian specialties; Restaurants offer a great selection of traditional Chinese menu: from canonese to Sichuan. Could... More

If you have been to China Town in London, New York or Melbourne, don't bother going here as for you will be disappointed. It's even hard to find a proper Chinese restaurant serving good food. But I did; Ristorante Yue Bin is quite okay.

Finally pedestrian, you can walk along the street smelling chinese food, earing chinese spoken by people around and entering in small shops where you can buy local food (like chinese pak-choi cabbage) and fashion stuff, some cute, some just the copy of the copy. It is nice indeed to have a walk here and stop at some restaurant to get... More

One of the most famous streets of Milan, not for fashion or art, but Via Paolo Sarpi in recent years it has become a sort of ghetto street, a so called ''Chinatown'' where all stores along it in the area belong to Chinese owners, now become something like ethnic minority of Milan. The street itself is not very interesting and... More

Quite literally a Chinatown within Milan, most of the shops or the people you will meet here is Chinese (or at least has chinese origins, the so-called "second generation"), the place is filled with cheap small shops and restaurants. The whole road is covered with a lot of green spots and is very pretty to see while strolling.

We were told by another traveller tat there were some quaint shops and attractions here. Ok there were Chines lanterns as street lights but little else, except small tacky shops which were expensive for what they sold. Don't waste your time

Always worth checking out the little shops for some bargains, particularly if you're after some funky hairbands, or accessories. I have found some great stuff for my dancing outfits here.
