Re: Ferrari or Lamborghini tours.

If you own a Ferrari you can tour the factory..speak to your dealer:

Otherwise not. You will have to be satisfied with La Galleria Ferrari opposite the factory.

Info about the Lamborghini factory and museum here:

There are also some agencies which organise tours to Lamborghini, Ducati etc such as:

Hi Kumar, did you go to any of these tours? If you did, I am interested to know how you liked it. We are planning a trip to Northern Italy in March and my husband would like to visit these factories too.

Thank you,
Nanna

Try listening to Italian...

by Star_Dust

Try listening to Italian Music. There is a TV chanel here at home that shows really STRANGE (by North American Standards) italian shows, with FOLKY music. But as it turns out, music in Italy is pretty good!!!! Lunapop, Eros, Alex, etc...these are mainstream singers, but most people don't expect them to exist at all!!! Just try it!!!!!!!

Galleria of beauty

by Marpessa about Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is a beautful shopping mall. The building is neo-classical with an iron and glass ceiling. Construction on the building started in 1865 and was completed in 1877. The building also has some very nice mosaics.

As for shopping - the world's oldest Prada store can be found here, and other stores like; Louis Vuitton, Tod's and Gucci. There are other shops as well, selling assortments of clothes, books, shoes and jewellery.

There are also some nice looking restaurants and cafes here (although they all looked a bit pricey). Try to find something on sale in Prada or Gucci! The moon!

to many to list, just jump in...

by biggscotty

to many to list, just jump in a cab and ask the driver to take you somewhere fun. (just be careful as to what the driver considers fun!) dress to impress or you will end up hanging out outside! jeans and a t-shirt wont cut it here!

From Malpensa airport a good...

by carlos.br

From Malpensa airport a good way to go to Milan is the Malpensa Express - a railway express link from the airport to Milan downtown.
Check Malpensa Express website(italian/english)
http://www.ferrovienord.it/webmxp/index.html

From Malpensa Airport to Milan Cadorna Train Station. From there you can take a taxi or any other means of transportation, cheaper than coming by taxi all the way from the airport.
The trains are new and clean with space for the large luggage pieces, since they are specific for connecting the airport to the city.
Check the ATM-Mi(Azienda Trasporti Milanesi-Milan Transportation Company) website at http://www.atm-mi.it , available in italian and english. There you can find:
- Timetables for buses and the subway
- Information about ticket types and prices
- Information about parking lots in Milan
A very useful page in this site(unfortunatelly for many people it's available only in italian,but it's not that difficult if you try a little) is the GiroMilano. Like a Mapquest site you can enter origin and destination addresses and get the best itinerary either using the bus lines or the subway system.
