Looking for somewhere quiet to sit? Want to immerse yourself in culture but also watch the world go by while either sipping a coffee, nibbling a sandwich or enjoying an aperitif  (with the added bonus of free wifi)? Then, Verso is the place for you!This small independent bookstore offers a wonderful selection of novels by mainstream and independent publishers, as well as a delightful selection of reference books, stationery, comics and graphic novels laid out around the store amongst tables, armchairs and chairs. Verso has set aside a large room at the back of the store, lined from floor to ceiling with children's books, making it the perfect oasis for little ones to leaf through the pages of a book, immerse themselves in storytelling or take part in one of the workshops Verso organises on a regular basis.  Most works are in Italian but Verso also has a number of titles in the English language. One of our favourite things about Verso is that they remove the glass store front during the summer months, so clients get to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Milan's hipster centre: Ticinese and Colonne di San Lorenzo. Verso is open Mondays 13.00 to 21.00; Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays 10.00 to 21.00; Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 10.00 to 24.00.

This lovely book shop definitely has the best selection of Italian language children's books we have seen to date here in Milan. You can find a wide range of children's books, both fact and fiction, divided according to age. There is also a second hand section where you can buy books in excellent condition at a 50% discount of their original sale price. Definitely worth a visit.
