The Rossoneri were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw at promoted Ascoli on the opening day of the season but they made no mistake at home to Siena.
Massimo Ambrosini broke the deadlock on 15 minutes and the lead was doubled just after the half hour through the prolific Andrei Shevchenko.
Igor Tudor put Siena back into the game on the cusp of half time before Kaka's 81st minute strike sealed the points for Milan.
Palermo withstood a late fightback from Internazionale to claim a 3-2 home success.
Inter hold pretensions of winning Serie A this season but they were sunk by the ambitious Sicilian side.
The hosts took the lead on 20 minutes through experienced midfielder Eugenio Corini and Christian Terlizzi made it 2-0 on 50 minutes.
Summer signing Stephen Makinwa added a third Palermo goal midway through the second half before Inter rallied in the closing stages.
Julio Cruz pulled one back on 85 minutes, and scored again deep into injury time, but it was insufficient for Inter to snatch a point.
