Italian cities in generally are not that green, given their historical (Roman, medieval) origins. Most of the fresh air has to be taken in at the outskirts of the city itself. This also holds for Milan, which does have an air pollution problem in summer, due to traffic and lack of wind (the Po valley is a real hot pan).

Some parks can be found though and there actually are a few bigger ones close to the center : Sempione park near the Castello and Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli . In both parks there are also activities and facilities to have a snack or drink. The Giardini della Guastalla and the Parco delle Basiliche Paolo Giovanni II offer smaller green areas near city center. Do not forget to visit the Brera Botanical Garden when you near.

The other parks are further out of town , like the water park Idroscalo and the artificial hill park of Monte Stella .

Gardens can be found at some of the historical villa's like Villa Reale , Villa Scheibler and Villa Litta Modignani .
