Milan is Italy’s business and banking capital, and while those things are important to the country as a whole they’re not as enticing for tourists. There’s a reason I often recommend that people skip Milan (especially on a short trip to Italy) — Milan doesn’t fulfill the usual cravings for “quintessential Italy” that travelers always seem to bring in their carry-on bag. Milan is, however, home to Italy’s second-busiest airport — Malpensa –– so even if your original Italy travel plans didn’t include Milan, you might be stuck figuring out what to do with a day or two in the city that is either your arrival or departure point. Here, then, are some travel tips for the Milan newbie to help you enjoy your first trip there.
