>I forgot to mention that Milan reminds me of Zurich (thanks to the trollies and stone-paved streets), New York City in the 1970s (due to the rampant grafitti), and Communist-era Berlin (the city was bombed out during WWII and rebuilt in a most uninspired manner). Everyone on the street reminds me of a New Yorker who happens to speak Italian and live in Rome. This cracks me up. Overall, I'd say that it is an OK city, but I definitely like Rome and Florence much better.
