"Just north of the city centre, Isola is Milan’s hipster neghbourhod, It has an urban street vibe and features colorful streets full of paintings. This is the heart of Milan street art where stunning graffiti are found in every corner, you can even do a tour around the neighbourhood to see the best ones. The area has fantastic boutiques and specialty stores.
The previous remoteness of the area that lead to an influx of street artists during the late 20th century, contrasts with the current high-end vibe of the newly built Porta Nuova business district. The art-deco apartments share space with the new corporate buildings in this quickly changing area."
