Snapshot: Milan, Italy

Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Milan.

What’s Milan like?

The center is pretty and there are a lot of good looking women about, but Milan isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. The city is baffling expensive for Italy, and the nightlife is disappointing.

What are the women like?

Image result for sexy Italian girlsItalians are some of the best looking women in Europe. They take of themselves, and are usually slim and well-dressed.

They’re friendly enough, like other Latin women, but are slightly arrogant. The reason for this is the men, whose world-renowned thirst have earned them the reputation as the Turks of Europe.

I actually like Italians, they are animated and warm, but in truth you are dealing with the slowest kids in the class.

Their level of English is the lowest in the EU along with France. At least the French have an excuse—275 million people across 26 countries speak their language—but who else speaks Italian? NOBODY. Yet most choose to be ignorant and can’t communicate with the outside world.

Okay, Rant over. Luckily, you’ll meet plenty of exceptions. Italian men are pretty direct, so slow your game to contrast with that.

As many of you may know Milan is also one of the fashion capitals of the world, and as such hosts many models. However, seeking them out requires you to go to super high-end bottle service type venues.

Then they’re foreigners. 20% of Milan residents are foreign-born and the city hosts nearly two millions tourists each year. Aside from other Europeans you will notice a ton of Asian gals.

Where should I go at night-time?

Home. No, but seriously, the nightlife was in the city was pretty dismal in my experience. Aside from being expensive, nearly every drinking venue was table-service only and terrible for mingling. Even the nearest Irish pub was more like a restaurant and required a waitress.

It’s like the whole architecture of Milan nightlife is set up to prevent dudes from approaching the women.

Anyway, I also couldn’t extract any good recommendations from locals or expats either. Try here for better advice. If anybody knows a good venue please leave a comment.

Any other recommendations/advice?

Apart from pizza and gelato? Not really. There are some sites like the Duomo. Just take a walk around.

Bottom Line

Compared to other Italian cities it’s not worth it.

    Tallies with my experience.

    Online would be the way to go in Italy in general because nightlife is a waste of time.

    Mark, do not get me wrong but your hairstyles and general outlook put you in the very scope of a gellati someone from the North of the peninsula to not like. I’ve been here and there (and my approach is far more than the “think on normal”)… I had my chances back in 2002 with a Milan-born Philosophy-major lady. Was so laid back but I was concentrated to other stuff and I deliberately did not got on it and repealed (for my greeater nowadays regret) her fascination on me. Reason – complexes… Let the matter be readable to others, congrats for the voyage timeline! Once again – is not a correction, just rather a mentioning I owe to others…

    Milan and Athens, most boring cities I’ve ever been to!

    • cheeky chappy April 17, 2017 at 7:55 pm #

    I’m really not a fan of Milan, but I know it pretty well as I lived there for a long while and I tell you…your review is pretty naive.

    Milan is overall an ugly city with few exceptions, but in terms of night entertainment, hardcore activities, sex and other amenities, well it’s one of the best spot in south Europe.

    And again, I’m from Rome, raised in London, and I generally don’t like Milan.

    Gents, Im an American stationed in Naples and I have to say Italy is the worst place in the world to try to get laid. Some women here are real knockouts but its just not worth the headache and rejection. I blame it on Italian men and the closed/family culture. Men are so aggressive that Italian women develop a bitch shield as a default. Additionally Italian women don’t like to stray away from their lame circle of friends and would get slut shamed if they did. Compared to the rest of Europe they have little interest of the world beyond Napoli, Roma, etc. and being a foreigner is a strike against you. However you get points if you are latin or black American. White dudes need not apply! Im a decent looking dude, in shape, tall, good job (compared to most Italians, etc) but it doesn’t matter. The same for my single friends and colleagues who are stationed here. Yea, sometimes white guys get lucky with a 6 every once in a while, but it usually involves a lot of work. ( at least 3 dates and weeks of mind numbing texting ) Then when you finally snag one you find out that most Italian women are super entitled, have a provincial mindset, and a pain to be with. After a few years I gave up on the place , go somewhere outside of Italy to and do very well. i distinctly remember going to Germany after not leaving Italy for months and a German girl checked me out. It was like; wow that doesn’t happen in Italy, I forgot women find me attractive. I seriously challenge any of you guys to come to Naples or another city in Italy and attempt to pull it off?
