8 Day Vacation in Milan

Jump to last reply

I will fly into Milan mid-May and am going to stay in Milan for 8 full days (excluding travelling days). I am doing lots of research on the city, and it seems very interesting. There are so many churches, monuments, and palaces that represent the Lombard art and architecture tradition from the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical to the early 20th century Modern (my favorite) eras.

However, as I am doing more research about what others think about Milan on the internet, they all say that it's not very pretty, or not very interesting, and that there's only shopping (which I am not interested at all, although it will be nice to see the famous designer shops). Will I be disappointed by Milan?

And I am not interested in going to Rome, Florence, or Venice. I have lived in Rome for 3 months (which means that I am not interested in going back), been to Florence many times, and Venice (It was not for me) many times. I will always love Rome, but I want to see something new. What is your thought about Milan? As for side trips, I am interested in Turin, the Lakes (only one day), and Genoa. What do you think about these cities? Thank you! I appreciate this a lot.
