In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Starting from Monday, April 12 shops may stay open, bars are allowed to provide take away service till 6pm and restaurants till 10pm. Museums, however, are closed, and so are theaters and cinemas. No evenings with friends: two guests max, no more than once a day. Curfew 10pm-5am anyway.
.:. Official news at the YesMilano website.

The most central of Milan's city parks was designed by the same 18th century architect (Giuseppe Piermarini) as the Scala and Palazzo Reale and later enlarged and embellished with funny fake rocks.

It's a perfect place to take the kids or go for a short walk amid some greenery. It also encompasses the Hoepli Planetarium and the Museo di Storia Naturale.

On the other side of Via Palestro you find more gardens (open only to children accompanied by adults). They belong to the Villa Reale, which houses the Galleria d'Arte Moderna (Gallery of Modern Art), and nearby PAC (Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea).

After crossing Corso Venezia in front of the natural history museum you come to Piazza Duse, where an early 20th-century residential district (strictly for the well-heeled) begins. The outstanding Villa Necchi Campiglio is nearby, and can be visited.
