    Milan

    I love this city, it's quite different from the rest of italy. I think it's really underrated, probably because the rest of italy is so famous historically. Milan is a really good example of today's italy. But it is still a charming and interesting place. The Duomo is breathtaking, and there is always something interesting going on. The canal district is great. Milan has great pasteries. Tired of pasta and pizza? China town is a great place to find something different.

    Insider Tip:Use the metro to get around, Milan has some of the best public transport in Italy. And according to my Italian friend that is a pastery chef, Milan is home to some of the most prestigious bakeries and pastery shops.

    Had a great day doing a tour of milan and the last supper, and a night of wandering round the beautiful city.

    Insider Tip:The duomo at night is gorgeous. Book last supper tickets in advance.

    Not nice.

    There is very little to do at Milan besides eating. There are just a few touristic attractions, such as the duomo, and as so they are usually over crowded in a way that's not pleasant. The metro system and buses are confusing and it's hard to get information. Streets are not clean at all and all the time I felt like I was walking in a bad neighbourhood, despite staying in the city center. Markets and stores also operate on weird hours - couldn't find places open neither at 11 AM nor at 5 PM.

    Milan - Good for a couple of days

    Not a bad city but we had exhausted it after 2 days. It's suited more for people who like to shop. A few decent sites to visit (the Duomo being the best). We travelled around Italy and there are much much better cities/places to visit so unless you like shopping at the v.expensive stores go somewhere else.

    In my opinion this city is amazing lot of history mixed with a cosmopolitan city. 2015 expo milan will give visitors a great view of the city. Food is amazing can find every kind of restaurants with variety of prices.

    Insider Tip:Be careful of guy that offer "gifts", juust learn to say No in a strong tone of voice and will no bother to much.
