I came here from Malta. The flight takes 2 hours and cost me €29. Unlike in Rome, buses to and from the airports run at night.

</cen Coming from Malta with nice clean cities I immediately noticed the piles of trash and walls covered in graffiti, which is typical for big european cities. Compared to Rome or [Naples](/travel/2022/naples.html), the streets feel safer at night.

The main symbol of Milan is the Duomo.

Milan has an actual China town.

Overall pretty boring big european city. I hate Milan and Milan hates me.

Ukrainians gather in front of the Duomo everyday at 8 PM with flags and organize a shitshow. I came up to them and said that I came here from Moscow and the reaction was neutral. I deleted all photos with anything Ukrainian before coming back to Russia.

Milan has a nice metro system with 5 lines. A single ticket costs €2.

Some people say that Russian culture got completely cancelled, but that's not quite true.
