Alex & Paul
Located in the heart of the city center, Alex & Paul is a famed stopover for drinks. It offers great tastings of sharing platters accompanied by a glass of wine – or even a whole bottle. Or, indulge in a glass of champagne. This is something that many wine bars do not offer because of Italy’s (especially Lombardy’s) preference for home-grown bubbly.
