Very Few people know that in Milan there are two among the oldest Churches in the world. Sant'ambrogio that literally Dwarfs Duomo when you talk about History (where the last Great Roman General is Buried) and San Simpliciano. They date back to fourth century.... And there is a lot more to see of the gigantic roman circus than the original one in Rome...

O mia bela Madunina che te brillet de lontan
tuta d'ora e piscinina, ti te dominet Milan
sota a ti se viv la vita, se sta mai coi man in man!

Even if you showed a little bit too much hipster style place, there's a lot more in Milan then that!!

Hello i don't want to judge, but actually the translation at 4:50 is wrong! He clearly says 250 Years not 350 ;)

Milan is a great city to discover. It's not easy to like as some other places in Europe, but this city can be really fascinating. You have to walk through the center by night. Everyone should see Milan.

a part from the two museums they hint (i reccomend emilio isgró in the gallerie)  this is a very paltry picture full of false attitude and commonplaces, reminding me moratti's  idea of milan expo 2015.... and there you are! oh lord!.
milan is such a controversial great, old, very old town - medio lanum -
awful report with pretty photos. sorry.  my town is not what usa-people are able to see in it. they're probably too young. i wouldn't try these restaurants and bars (but for obvious reasons i'm not telling the good ones). an "aperitivo" in a small old nice bar with lots of old people around you, chatting loud and laughing  is actually really a good experience.
just a little grain (very very tiny).... enzo jannacci, giorgio gaber, adriano celentano, franca rame, dario fo, paolo rossi, giorgio strehler, l'ultima cena, brera (of course the pinacoteca not the shops) and one of the most beautiful church worldwide: s. ambrogio.
don't forget to give a look to piazza loreto where  mussolini was executed! just get a picture. it feels alienating, void,
same for piazza fontana.
