Great pics but it does not look like I would be breaking down doors to see this city compared to other major European cities. Seems like I expected more out of this fashion capitol of Europe, or atleast one of them. Beautiful no doubt, but something's missing. Maybe the geography.

Great tour, ColDayMan. I enjoyed Milan. The train stations and plazas were breathtaking in grandeur and Il Duomo is almost mind-numbingly ornate. The parks and hidden gardens were lovely. The people were beautiful and immaculately dressed as you'd expect. I loved the food of course, particularly the 2 hour ritual that is dinner. However, it was hard not to notice the insane amount of grafitti. Otherwise, I had no complaints.
BTW, did you take the stairs to the roof of Il Duomo? Great views from up there. I'd love to see your photos. That was of course the day I left my camera in my room. Doh!
My other car is a Dakota Creek Advanced Multihull Design.
I've never been to Milan but this thread is very inspiring. Milan looks like everywhere and nowhere, and I mean that in a good way. In fact, I would not be able to place these if they were separated, except for the Pirelli Tower. Parts of it look like post-war West Germany, parts of it look like Helsinki, parts of it look like Italy, and parts of it look like Buenos Aires. The architecture is eclectic, even for European standards.
