Recently I wrote a review on Geneva. The last time I visited myself and my flatmate (otherwise known as LIZKEMPO) decided to make a proper holiday of it so we jumped on a train and headed into Italy afterwards. So by way of a sequel I’m now writing a review of our next destination, Milan. Milan...

“Milan - February 2004”

published 09/03/2005

ProGood shops, architecture and food!

ConsCost and language.

I only just came back from a couple of days in Milan so thought now was the best time to write with the memories fresh in my head. I had a really good time and would recommend it! I went with my boyfriend from Saturday night until lunchtime Tuesday. So really we only got 2 full days. I would say...

“Duomo Far So Last Suppah!”

published 24/04/2009

ProSurprises!

ConsGuns!

It's official. I'm getting old. I can't do anything about it either. I tried like amending my y'know vocabulary. Innit, and I bought jeans that clearly required the support of a belt but then, this is how crazy I am, I didn't wear a belt. Everyone could see my pants. I quickly realised that my...

ProClean, safe, elegant, friendly

ConsNone I can think of - perhaps lack of taxis

My friend and I decided to head off to Milan for a city break as a pretty last minite decision after finding extremely cheap flights with Ryanair. We only had a few days to prepare so an 'itinerary' as such was out of the question. Actually, our reason for making the trip was for my friend to...

“Milano, Bellissima!!!!”

ProHistoric, decent restaurants, good shopping!!!

ConsDon't speak the language!!

I was somewhat persuaded to visit Milan in November last year. My best friend Dani, being Italian herself, therefore completely biased, nagged and nagged me for 3 whole weeks to go. "Right" I thought, "if it shuts her up I'll go." Her smile was the size of the moon, a full moon that is. No...

“Woul you shop near Loreto?”

ProInfos about Milan

ConsI tell you only about a small zone of the town

As you all certainly know, Milan is also a town for shopping. In fact, it is also called “The town of fashion”, and this name is not only due to the various fashion shows that take place in the town during the entire year, but also to the fact that here you can find the best stylist boutiques in...

ProVibrant city

ConsExpensive

I travelled to Milan in the December of 2001 with my Dad and Brother for a spot of pre Christmas football watching. The mighty Ipswich Town were in the UEFA Cup and had been drawn against Inter Milan, far too good an opportunity for three die-hard fans to miss. As it turns out the football was a...

Consfood, people, transport

I visited Milan for the first time too many years ago to mention and I loved it on sight. For some reason my second visit had to wait until last September when I left a dull grey South Coast town for the delights of this city of cities. We arrived at Linate, which is not the main airport, flying...

ProLots to see

ConsCrowds, dirt

From reading other reviews and ratings of Milan it seems I am the only person who did not enjoy my experience of the place. Don't get me wrong there's quite a lot to see and do, some magnificent architecture and shopping, but overall I found the whole experience of Milan completely stressful! I...

ConsPricey, dirty and plagued by annoying gypsies

I went to Milan in early May with my partner. I still don’t really know why I went there, but I suppose I was attracted by the allure of the big city as well as the proximity of the beautiful lakes of northern Italy. I stayed for 7 nights and paid £450 in total for the flight, hotel and transfers...

The first time I went to Milan, I hated it. Then I went back. Then I went back again, and I grew increasingly fond of the place. Milan isn't the first place that immediately springs to mind (my mind anyway!) when it comes to picking places to visit. It is the industrial and financial centre of...

ConsUndercurrent of violence in Italian football

I always like travelling and soaking up culture. When I'm abroad I also try to fit in a football match. I've seen Dutch, Belgian and French football on a few occasions but I've always wanted to see matches from the big boys of Europe ie. Spain Germany and Italy. In April 2004 I had decided to...
