Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Really?

I was never in Milan, so like Migeru, I went by the general good impression of acquitances who recently spent almost a week there.

In Northern Italy, places I have been to and liked: Verona, Valeggio (just a small town with a Germanic castle nearby, somehow lovely), Udine (visited in winter when the air was clear and all the Alps visible, while there it was moderately warm and one could stroll along canals), of course Trieste, Venice and Florence, Pisa, and top favourites Siena, San Marino (well technically not Italy) and nearby sleepy mountain town with castle, San Leo. But Sicily has some much more beautiful towns than those I have seen here.

Florence, Pisa, Siena and you forget Arezzo?

I was in Arezzo, but all I remember is strolling on dark and steep streets full of dog shit with some crumbling houses alongside -- it was a short midday stop to move and eat, so quite possibly not the centre of town...

And Lucca, and Pistoia...

I don't quite like museums all that much, so when I was in Florence I enjoyed taking trains all over Tuscany more than visiting Gli Uffizi.

There is a well-preserved Roman amphitheatre, for instance.
