What is it like to live in Milan? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

I have never lived in Milan, I have only visited the city. I have heard it is a bit expensive to live there. One friend of mine was paying about six hundred Euros for a single room in a shared flat. The food is also expensive. Otherwise, I believe it would be a nice place to live. It is not a huge city, but it is not small either. There are many cultural events taking place in Milan. There are bars and restaurants, several universities, and lots of stuff going on there.

What is the student lifestyle like in Milan?

Again, I cannot say because I have never lived there but it seems cool. People are somewhat "fancy". I mean, they care a lot about the way they dress and their personal image. On the other hand, they are Italian, so it should be cool to know them and communicate with them.

How much does it cost to live in Milan?

It is expensive, I am sure. From what I saw, during my short stay, both food and rent seem to be expensive.

What places would you recommend visiting in Milan?

Go in the area of the navigli. These are the Milan canals, where you can eat something or have a drink. They resemble the canals in Venice and they are a cool place. Go to the famous Duomo, one of the biggest and most impressive cathedrals in the world. Visit the famous La Scala opera and the surrounding area.

Is it good to eat out in Milan? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

I do not remember any specific places to go out in Milan but I remember that there were many bars that offer you aperitivo. You pay for a drink, such as a glass of wine, for example, and you get access to an open bar that usually offers sandwiches, pasta, and salads.
