"Ciao Milano!" Milan by smicki

Milan Travel Guide: 2,840 reviews and 7,134 photos

I fell in love with Italy last year when we visited most of the main cities but didn't include Milan as I had been led to believe it was "industrial".

After spotting a cheap ticket to Bergamo with Ryanair we decided to give it a try - and we were pleasantly surprised. OK so there isn't as much to see as Rome for example but theres a great buzz about the place and the nightlife was the best I've come across in Italy. Its also a great base for touring (the lakes, Switzerland, etc).

My only regret is that I didn't have more time!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:People, atmosphere, nightlife, good base
  • Cons:Duomo and La Scala are currently being renovated ...
  • In a nutshell:Great buzz
