Arriving in Milan early morning--staying for 1 night

need suggestions on what to do, and where to stay. Is it a good idea to head to Verona or should I stay in Milan? What should I do for that one day and where should I book a hotel.

If it was me I would catch the first train out of Milan to Verona - a super city, and a great place to unwind after a long flight.

Where should I stay in Verona--in order to be central and to take advantage of the day?

We stayed at the Locanda dei Mercanti in Milano for that first night after out arrival at Malpensa in order to adjust to the times, etc. If you're intyerested in opera, it's worth while getting a peek at La Scala from the La Scala Museum, and seeing the enormous Duomo and posh Galleria. It was a good, low-key (in the sense of non being inundated by other tourists) introduction to Italy; however, Verona is a relatively short distance to the east (I think about two hours by train) and is an even lower-key Italian experience (we traveled to Verona after three days in Florence--where we'd gone the day after Milano--and it was a great break from the very crowded Florence).

We stayed at Verona's Hotel Guilietta e Romeo (no kidding!). It it was very pleasant and effectively right next door to the Roman colisseum (I never remember how to spell that). Oddly, the Guilietta and Milano's Locanda were the only Italian hotels that did not include breakfast with the rooms. But, no matter, eating is only about 100 feet away from the Guiletta.

If you go to Verona, we recommend you cross the river and visit the ancient Roman theatre and museum. The museum is on a hill above the theatre and ofers probably the best overall view of Verona.

Have a great time.
