Milan City Reviews

  • 40%


    It looks like a really fancy city, everything looks beautiful, but a little bit cold. We couldn't find real party locations, just places to get together with people, but it's important to get out early, because they have happy hours, and after 23 and 24 everything starts to die, and prices get really expensive. As it is a big city, there is need to walk and travel a lot, there is not a geographical centre where to find everything. The main square is really beautiful, with the Duomo.

    Insider Tip:To go out drinking, Porta Genova is a good location, you can get shots for 1 or 2 euros and drinks for 4 euros. But in that area there are also expensive bars. Go right when going out of the metro. Don't miss visiting Luini, it is a backery with cheap traditional sweet and salty fast food. You will find it on a street on the left of the Duomo when looking at it. It is easily recognisable for the long queau there is always in the door.

    Duomo and Partying - that is all.

    Lots of thieves. Only go to Milan if you wanna explore the weekend nightlife, other than that, avoid.

    Insider Tip:Watch out for the people standing next to ticket machines in the metro. They are thieves. Use another machine if possible, avoid them at all costs, use only coins DO NOT GET YOUR WALLET OUT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES NEAR THE MACHINES.

    Milan, the dull city.

    Didn't like Milan's atmosphere. Kind of Racism towards Asians. You should stop saying "Ni Hao~" to every Asians. There so many other countries in Asia. Nothing to enjoy in Milan, in contrast to Florence. Duomo, and the Last supper, Brera Gallery.. was all. Gloomy city, I guess.

    Milan has a number of things to see! I should have researched the part about seeing 'the last supper' painting, which needs to be booked in advance. Beautiful Duomo church, and castle Sforsesco, as well as general roaming the streets and soaking up the sun. Did not check out the nightlife though. Please beware of the scams that go about in the city, which I found to be more prevalent than Paris (personal opinion). This double edged sword has the locals with their guard up. eg directions

    Insider Tip:Definitely plan to do some day trips out of the city, Lake Como is one of the most accessible from a major city such as Milan, do take the time to see this, was the highlight of my trip!
