Though Milan was not intended to be the primary focus of my trip to Italy it was worth spending a few days there. It was a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend spending a few days in Milan if you have the opportunity. Though three days would be enough time to see the major attractions. One of the things I enjoyed most about Milan was that it was not as inundated with tourists as the some of the major tourist cities such Venice and Florence. One of the top attractions in Milan would be the Duomo. It is one of the largest cathedrals in Italy. The other top attraction would be De Vinci’s Last Supper at Santa Maria della Grazie. Also worth seeing is the Galleria...Read More

Aspromonte Hotel

Hotel

Quote:
Though this hotel itself was nothing special it was great bargain for the price. The room was comfortable and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. All of the staff spoke English and gave great advice on where to go.

The area the hotel was located in was a bit away from the main attractions it was just a flew blocks from the metro stop and a quick five minute cab ride to the train station. The neighborhood was quiet and there were a number of good restaurants close by.

If you are looking for a good place to stay at a good price a would recommend giving the hotel a try. The room price included breakfast each day, which included ham, bread, cheese, and juice.

On our most recent stop in Milan we spent two nights at Sheraton Diana Majestic Hotel. Our stop in Milan was a last minute change and I really didn't have an opportunity to do much research on hotels. I chose this hotel because it was close to where I needed to go in Milan and I had read a recent good review in a travel magazine. Though I have no complaints about my stay here at the same time there was nothing that was that memorable either. It was your typical high-end business hotel that you would find in any major city in the world. The rooms were large and comfortable, but they did not have a particular charm about them as have many of the other hotels in Italy where I have stayed....Read More

Risoranti Nabucco

Restaurant

Quote:
This restaurant in the Latin quarter had great food and offered the perfect atmosphere. The food there was excellent offering fine Northern Italian food. The pasta and the meat dishes were both excellent. The taramasu with a capacino hit the spot after dinner

The atmosphere was perfect for enjoying a great meal. The restaurant featured outdoor patio seating, as did most of in area. The Latin quarter was a very lively part of down and the outdoor seating was great for watching the comings and goings about.

ROSY E GABRIELE

Restaurant

A great local spot just about a block away from the Sheraton Diana Hotel. They had a very extensive menu with wide range of choices to include salads, pizza, pasta, seafood, and meat. We ate here twice during our most recent stop in Milan. Both times everything we had was great. We tried the salads, pizza, anti pasta buffet, and the grilled calimari and we were not disapointed with any of it. The service was very good. The waiters were all very friendly and spoke English. The menu is also available in English. Though not the best we food we have experienced in Milan this is a good safe bet if you are in the area. You know the food and service will be good and the prices...Read More

Old Fashion

Attraction | "The Old Fashion Café"

Quote:
Not to be confused with the Fashion Café restaurant in New York, though there were many model types there when we visited.

We had a great time when we visited. The music was a combination of American hip-hop/dance music and Euro/Techno music. The dance floor was outside in a garden like setting. It had a very elegant look and feel to it.

Both he staff and the crowd at the club were very friendly. I would recommend this as a great place to go in Milan.

The only problem was after we left the club we had quite a difficult time getting a cab since the club is away from a main street.
