I wouldnt express it so harshly, but i share her sentiments. Nothing exciting about Milan, really.

Take a train and come to Lugano or Locarno, Switzerland. Definitely more to see for a visitor: http://www.ticino.ch/?lang=en

Shopping.

I met in the plane when I was flying from my vacation, friends of my parents and they where flying from Milan.

When I asked how was Milan, they said that Milan is just a big shop. They got more than 5000 Euro back as tax refund  Wow!



I hate Lufthansa

Wrong time of year. You need to go during football season, if you're into that.

Then again, I'm the resident Milan fan  Smile

Well I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh well, I guess we are gonna pretend.

I have to agree with the others... Milan is a big disappointment if you're looking for more than just shopping. There's really not much to see and do. If you're on FR you'll arrive at BGY anyway, that already points you in the direction of either the Lago di Garda, Verona or Venice. Those are all great places if you wanna do the tourist thing. If I were you I'd take the bus to the Bergamo train station and hop on a train to Venice which should take you about 2,5 hours... Price is around 20 Euros which really isn't that much.
Check http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html . We've done that from BGY and it was very easy and convenient. Definitely much nicer than Milan.
Have fun on your trip.

As said earlier, book a Taxi back to the airport. It's a dump!

My suggestion is to book a hotel in Bergamo (5 minutes of car from BGY) and enjoy the quiet and historic part of the town called "Città alta" (17th century). In the evening you can take a walk around the center and visit the various restaurants and pubs, usually full of nice chicks  Wink

Well, Verona is closer than Venice, so I guess it's also cheaper to go there from BGY... Verona has a really nice old town and the youth hostel there is in an old villa which is nice.... and it's only 16 Euros a night Big grin

I just got back from a trip to Verona and Venice and it was totally awesome... we too got the 2-cent tickets with FR and flew HHN-VRN, stayed there for a night and then took the train to Venice...
Of course Venice has the most to offer, and the hostels there aren't that expensive either...

Of course that would be the cheapest alternative  Wink I did like Bergamo better than Milan, so you might just as well stay there... They have a good youth hostel there, too Big grin

Im Back! first of all i would like to say ryanair was not bad at all and i was pretty impressed, i think the legroom was good and service was good, flight going htere was on time but flight back landed 30mins late which isnt a big delay but anyway my views on milan:

Me and my parents actually liked milan and reminds us of lisbon, i dont think its that bad. Only thing is they could sign there metro stations a bit better and clean them more

That's good to hear. I, too, thought that Ryanair did ok... More like riding a bus, but ok... They had some nice eastern european girls as FAs though Big grin

That's a first, lol. Never heard anyone say that before... Personally, I prefer Lisbon by far which is actually one of my favourite cities...

You're right, you get what you pay for... which in our case isn't true I guess cuz we paid  twocents  But you can pay extra and actually get a little bit of service from Ryanair... dollarsign 

Quoting Mirrodie (Reply 16):

I see where you're getting at with Milan being the fashion capital and all... I guess those are mainly high maintenance though certainly nice to look at  eyepopping . Let me assure you there were plenty of nice girls in Verona and Venice as well Big grin No need to stay in Milan for that...
Next trip to Italy will be to Rome in october, I'm sure that won't be too bad either in terms of girls  veryhappy
