love letter to milan

“Milan gets a bad rap as Italy’s industrial city, but I think that’s dead wrong. If you get out of the city center into some of the neighborhoods, it’s just as beautiful as Rome, Venice, or Florence. It still retains its old-world charm — waiters still wear beautiful white dinner jackets in a lot of the most traditional restaurants and bars — but Milan is not trapped by its history like Rome or Venice. It is a thriving modern city and Italy’s center of fashion and design. Still, it has some of the most beautiful and serene museums, trattorias, and courtyards in the country. Milan has tremendous cultural influence on the rest of Italy, Europe, and the world.”
