I have been to Italy twice already this year (2007). Once in January and the other one is in June 2007. I was assigned to work in Milan for a month.
First time I was there, I just wander around Milan. The famous area are Piazza del Duomo and Shopping disctrict Monte Napoleone. The easiest way to get to Milan by air or train. I flew from Amsterdam to Milan Malpensa. I took Royal Dutch KLM from Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam and from Amsterdam to Milan. There is direct connection from Kuala Lumpur to Milan. The reason why I used Royal Dutch KLM is because I want to get some miles point from Enrich Malaysia Airlines. As I can spend the miles point for other trips to Stockholm this coming september.
This trip, during weekend I went out of Milan to Monaco Monte Carlo and Pisa. It is really nice and enjoyable trip.
