I don'think you can visit the plant itself, although you can visit its museum

http://www.branca.it/en/mondo/museo-carpano.asp

and the Torre Branca:

The archives are open for tours by 'invitation and appointment':

Re: fratelli branca distillery

I don't know about the facility, but does your friend realize that this trip will take 3.25 to 3.5 hours hour way, at a retail cost of 89 euro, each way?

I say "retail" since there is currently a promotion to go and come back on the Frecciarossa (high speed trains, which these trains to Milan are) for 99 euro round trip, if you make the round trip in the same day. Tickets must be bought at least the day before - see http://www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=6ff892fabd105210VgnVCM1000003f16f90aRCRD

All in all, 7 hours on a train plus 99 euro each seems like a lot of money and a long way just to see a distillery museum...hey, maybe you friend wants to go so badly that he/she will pay your way ;-)

It is possible to enter the distilley itself but only by appointment.
However, this is restricted access and you will need to book in advance.
Send an emal to: collezione@branca.it
There are guided tours available, for groups of 20 or less.
Mention your desire to join a tour when you email them.

Branca brand is mainly known as distillery.
Branca produces wine since 1985 but its best still remains on distillery products, not wines... ;)

Travel Tips for Milan

A scientific genious

by Gard

We stopped by the Museo Nazionale della scienza e della tecnica (science and technology museum). It is located in the sant Ambrogio district and when we got there it was more or less empty. We wanted to go there because there was supposed to be a special Leonard da Vinci exhibition. So we paid the 6.20 Euro to get in and we walked around for a couple of hours. The drawback once again, is that a lot of the information in the museum is only in Italian and hence it is not easy for the ones that don?t know the language. But it is a large museum and it houses models of boats, engines, power production, photography, watches, mining, radio and so on. The Leonardo da Vinci exhibition was OK but we didn?t see any of the hands on exhibits that we had read about. But quite a lot of wooden models had been built to display some of Leonardo?s ideas.

The museum itself is actually located inside an old monastery and surprise, surprise ? it too was undergoing a face lift. It turned out that this would become a repeating "problem" during our trip. You can read more about the museum on http://www.museoscienza.org/

Italian Breakfast: cappuccino e cornetto

by Diana75

For the ones used to a copious English breakfast, Italy is the wrong country.

The usual Italian breakfast is based on sweet things (cake, biscuits, and croissants) accompanied by coffee or cappuccino.

A real Italian will drink cappuccino only in the morning, as it is considered an appropriate drink during the day.

The Home for Elderly Musicians

by croisbeauty

The Home for Elderly Musicians, erected in the Venetian style in 1899 and enlarged after the Second World War, is a foundation set up by Giuseppe Verdi o shelter elderly impoverished musicians.
The crypt contains the mortal remains of Verdi and his second vife. In the courtyard is a monument to Arrigo Boito by Secchi.
The Home is situated in Piazza Buonarroti with Enrico Butti's monument to Giuseppe Verdi.

For a cold beer with lot of girls

by Henrik_rrb about Good Fellas

Good Fellas is a small pub named after the famous maffiamovie with Al Pacino. It's a calm place, but with a lot of people both inside and outside the bar. The best time to be there is during sunny days and evenings when the bar is crowded, normally with a lot of beautiful girls. But even during a rainy evening in november the place is great to just sit down, take a beer, and relax with your friends. The beer is also cheap, just euro 4,20 for a big beer. Aperitivo from 7 pm every day, closed on sundays. Nothing special, just dress as normal in Milan.

Hop Onto The CiaoMilano!

by Krystynn

For a first-time visitor to Milan, don't forget to hop onto a typical Milanese tram called CiaoMilano for a wonderful sightseeing experience.

The tram departs daily, at 11am, 1pm and 3pm from Piazza Castello.

(Note: From November to March = No tram rides at 3pm).

The tour should last approximately 2 hours and this very same ticket also allows you to get off the tram for a walk and then get on the next one.

Tickets? No worries, you can buy them as you board the tram.
