I'm glad you liked Milan. Milan is great to see with the eyes of a "tourist".. I see some views here for the first time - and I have promised myself to try to repeat) .. as the view from the Monumental (photo 35) and the decorations of the photo 46.

I hope you return soon.

Do you think that here in Milan we have so many German cars that drive in a newspaper was an article called: Milan, Germany.
Especially BMW, Mini, Smart and Volkswagen
We are also the city in Italy with the highest number of used Toyota Prius as a taxi.
