Milan – Is this really Italy?
Fashion capital of the world or not, Milan has the kind of understated charm that takes a while to appreciate. True, at first glance it may not look more than an economic and transport hub; but be warned: give it a few days and you’ll see there’s more to Milan than designer boutiques.
Milan has something for everyone. World-class shopping and a thriving cultural scene. Bespectacled hipsters strolling side by side Gucci-toting beauties. Designer bars and family-run trattorie, with a pinch of artisan breweries thrown in. What is true of Milan, is true of its people. The Milanese have a reputation for being unfriendly and obsessed with work. And after moaning that Milan is not as cool as London or Berlin, by the end of the night you will confess there’s nowhere else you rather be.
