Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
MIlan is the perfect place for a "american do europe" attitude.
You need 1/2h for the Galleria (espresso or gelato included), 1/2 h for the Duomo, and you are back to the station by foot in what? 1/4h?, getting the next train.

Trust me: You don't need to stop a single second more. the other attractions are models (you are traveling with your mate) and expensive shops (the stuff can be brought everywhere else in Europe main cities).

I always bitch why foreign tourists need to stop in Milan, when small cities (VErona for naming one) are already more interesting, and a big one like Turin should be head and shoulder above Milan for any tourist in his right mind.

Airport Logistics, I presume. So if you are not bund to it, don't make the mistake: stop over night in Turin, and look at Milan en passant on the way to Venice or  Florence.
From Geneva, it is a little bit difficult maybe, but from Lyon, Turin makes perfect sense.

La répartie est dans l'escalier. Elle revient de suite.
