    We found Milan very reasonable. We found a small hotel owned by a Chinese family - it seems they leased one floor of an apartment building and had about six rooms available, some with shared bathroom. It was backpacker plus in comfort and cleanliness. There was another hotel two floors up that we also tried on the way home from Venice, equally reasonable and comfortable but no luxuries. Then we shopped in the local supermarket and bought bread and cheese and fruit and wine and pesto for lunch. We spent two days walking everywhere and stopping for a meal or glass of wine or coffee whenever I needed to stop looking. I think I had the best coffee ever in Milan. I also refused to wear walking shoes when every other woman was totally elegantly dressed - the price of blister bandaids added 9 euro to the trip. So - for a walk around, buy local food, stay in low star but adequate accommodation two adults spent less than $1000/week. almost 11 years ago

    Milan is not so expensive indeed, unless you go shopping in Via Montenapoleone or eating in Galleria! You can have good supper for 20-30 Euro all included, except for wines and stay in a good hotel for 50 Euro per night. If you are going to stay for a week, I can suggest you this website (friend of mine) for residence in Milan: http://www.rentok.it/Pages/en_rentok_english_home_page.aspx

    They provide good solution for short period accomodations in Milan: better and cheaper than hotel rooms! Moreover, according to me 1 week in Milan is too much, you just need 2-3 days for shopping and seeing some museum, than I'd better visit some other places: Bologna is 2 hours far, Venice and Florence 3 hours and you can easily travel using a car with driver service! Don't think it's expensive especially if you are 2 ore more, consider you can travel with timetable you decide and you don't risk delays with trains or buses which are common in Italy. Here's a cheap and quality car with driver service in Milan:

    they can also bring you to Outlet like Foxtown or Serravalle . My advice is not to lose the opportunity of a visit to beautiful italian cities, Milan only deserves a short visit! (I'm italian and live near Milan!) about 10 years ago
