Nice among the best cities is hilarious... you're lucky if you can come back home from there... criminals everywhere (Marseille the same). france is also the country with the most racist episodes in the whole world... Not to mention the assholes the Paris people are. Also, they have loads of art stolen (by Napoleon, etc.) from Milan, Venice and Italy. Not to mention all the food they copied from other countries and made it as if it was their invention. french wine, french fashion: definitely second rate.
Milan (Celtic foundation) has been interesting and vibrant at least since it was the capital of the western half of the Roman Empire. It was one of the most glorious of the Italian Comuni during the Middle Ages. It housed one of Italy’s most spectacular courts during the Renaissance. And so on. Leonardo da Vinci came from Florence looking for work and ended up staying a long time and achieving quite a lot, like many others have done since. Having always been in the thick of things, Milano is gifted with an impressive part of Italy’s heritage: it is a great city of art.
Have a look at the imposing marble Duomo, at our churches, palaces and museums. You will also be delighted by contemporary art and architecture. There’s so much more to Milan than just Leonardo’s Last Supper, the most famous painting in the world. Countless works of art are waiting for you, and nearly all of them are within walking distance.
While you visit, let the atmosphere of Italy’s most modern and advanced city seep in. You will be captured by the elegance and style; by the energy and the international flair. An incredible shopping experience for all tastes and pockets, in a place where design and fashion have made their home, the world capital.
Milan is the hub of Italian culture and media. If you are a music lover, you can’t miss La Scala. Many other orchestras and venues cater to all musical tastes, from chamber music to jazz. If you are a sports fan, no other city (first in the world) can boast two football powerhouses like AC Milan and Inter Milan, fiercely dividing the residents’ loyalties and supported throughout the world. And a very short trip to Monza will take you to the legendary Formula 1 racing track that has made Ferrari famous.
With so many things to do and see, take the time to simply enjoy yourself – relax and sip an "aperitivo" while you consider your options for dinner. Milan provides an overwhelming dining experience, as all Italian regional cuisines are richly represented, along with many others from the rest of the world.
Don’t forget that parks, green fields, canals and old farmhouses beckon a visit and will make you feel a lot more distant from the city centre than you really are. You will want to come back.
