in Porta Garibaldi & Isola

The Eataly shop front

A cult destination dedicated to Italian gastronomy, this three-level mega-emporium showcases the best locally sourced products, including artisanal gelato from Làit and mozzarella made fresh daily from Miracolo a Milano. In addition, there are 12 different eateries, rooms for food workshops and the Michelin-starred restaurant Alice.

Housed in what was formerly the Teatro Smeraldo, as a nod to its past it has occasional live music and readings on the stage above the ground-floor market.
