Milan Intro

Milan Intro - Milan, Italy

Milan is "in" every season. Whether you alight here for a fashion show, trade fair or just to spend a few priceless moments in front of Da Vinci's The Last Supper or Michelangelo's final Pieta, Milan delivers.

Many travelers venture here before making their way on to Lake Como (known for being George Clooney's second home) and Turin. Milan is also well poised for those wishing to visit Genoa.

True, Milan may not be cutesy and overly warm (hey, we can't all be Bruges), but much of its charm lies its fashionable chaos—haute couture shops, flea markets and some of the most gorgeous Gothic architecture around.

Who are we? EuroCheapo is a guide to budget hotels in Milan and throughout Europe. Our editors have been reviewing cheap hotels all over Europe since 2001, always with an eye on recommending only hotels that are clean, central and cheap.

Milan can get pricey quickly, especially if you happen to be visiting during fashion shows or other expo dates. During the rest of the year, however, the city can be a welcoming place for Cheapos, especially given the number of small, family-run hotels and pensions in town.
