Milan, the best place in Italy! I've spent nearly two years in this town, and it has everything you might ask for. Except a beach, ocean, my swedish favorite-pizza and a few more things. But still, I love this city!
Many people say the city and it's people are cold and unfriendly, but nothing could be more wrong. Unlike Firenze and Rome, Milan isn't full of tourist and the typical tourist-traps. Instead it's a town of fashion, of football and probably the town that best gives you the north-italian culture. If you prefer the lazy tempo you might think the italians have -go to Rome, Napoli or another city in the south. If you prefer the faster tempo the north europeans have - go to Milan.
During my 17 months in Milano I have had so much fun, met so many friends, learned so many new things. At this page I hope to be able to give you some things you can use if you're coming here, things that I've learnt during my time here.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The football, girls and beer
  • Cons:The weather
  • In a nutshell:Best time of my life!

    Haha - it's a lot of fun reading your tips! Zara's a very favourite store of mine as well. Will be back for the rest later. Cheers, Marina :-)))

    Henrik, these Milan tips helped me during our trip to Milan but we missed seeing the Sempione arch which Cristian_uluru said was also copied by the Arc de Trioumphe...and the Last Supper was a great experience...Thanks, Norman :)

    Great Milan home page! but, if I may ask, what did you do in Milan? Very nice tips! I visited Goteborg in 2006 and found it very nice also, the people also!

    Ah, now I think I remember what you told me about your Bridgetown experience if I'm not mistaken! Nope, none of that stuff we got just alot of 'You need a taxi?' questions. Pretty tame in comparison to your experience, right? ;)
