Some Italian cities cater to tourists. Milan certainly does not. Enjoy the fashion, aperitivo time, and the historical sites with real Italians. It may take a little longer to fall in love with the city, but once you do, it's a true love.Recommended for:

Other than the Major attraction Milan is just another big grungy city with tons of tourists. I was not amazed by the food. The Duomo is unique and worth while…the Central Park is the other primary reasons to go.

It took me a while to warm to Milan, which is the most Western European facing of Italy's major cities. Fashion-conscious, well-heeled, and chilly compared to parts further south. But once Milan gets into you, there's an irresistible charm.Recommended for:

Milan is Italy's business-y city. It's more gray than Rome, and much colder. However, you can see opera at La Scala, and stroll through the center, marvelling at the intricate sculptures decorating the Duomo. If you go in for designer shopping, it's definitely on offer. Make sure to stop for an aperitivo (drinks and snacks before dinner) which is a Milanese specialty.Recommended for:

Fashion, business, turn of the century architecture and cold weather. Milan is one of Europe's great cultural hubs and has been since the Roman times. Octavian went to college here. Ernest Hemingway recuperated from his war wounds and fell in love.Recommended for:

The fashion capital of Italy is also the gateway to the Lakes region. The hotels are over the top, the style is divine. If you want to see how the other half lives, take a trip to Milan!Recommended for:

An undisputed fashion capital, this city can feel less intimate than others you will encounter in Italy. However, Milan has something for everyone with great shopping, history, architecture and food.Recommended for:

A surprise to us at how pretty this city is. It's a shopping paradise with a beautiful shopping area around the Duomo. The Duomo is probably the largest cathedral we've ever seen. Nice city.

Milan is not a top tourist destination in Italy but it is well worth a visit. The city centre is very walkable. The Cathedral, Il Duomo, is amazing. Shopping, of course, if you're a fashionista, but there's also great art and architecture for art and history buffs.Recommended for:

Great city with enough to do to keep you busy for a few days. If you are a fashion head, come for fashion week. If you aren't, come to look at one of the world's largest convention centers that can simultaneously host a good dozen premier fashion shows.

Milan is a city of highend fashion and modern Italian culture. Its location in Northern Italy puts you not far from the mountains, Lake Como, Portofino and Cinque Terra. Very walkable with a reliable public transit supported by bus, subway and tram. For English speakers, Milan was easy to navigate.

Milan does not have the charm as the other Italian cities. You need to know people in Milan to really know where to go and what to do. It might be one of the fashion capitals of the world but the city itself really isn't very fashionable.

The main reason for going to Milan was to visit the Marni Outlet store. The outlet is inconspicuously located in the suburb, Via F. Tajani, 1. Definitely worth a visit, if you like the brand.
The other major attraction is the Duomo di Milano. It's the most grandiose, ornate, and awe-inspiring architecture I have ever seen.
