Milano is a super modern city and it was the polar opposite of Roma, which I visited in 2009 but I'm sure has just gotten more touristy and unbearable since then. Don't get me wrong, Roma is beautiful and full of history but it's also crammed full of tourists, which to me, takes away from its charm.
Milano, however, is sleek, clean, and modern and of course, it's a shopping addict's dream.
From these airports, the city is quite easily accessible. From Malpensa, there is a €12 train that will take you right to Milano Centrale train station. From Bergamo and Linate, there are €5 buses that will take you right to Milano Centrale.
If you're not keen on flying in direct, there are several train routes that will bring you to, you guessed it, Milano Centrale.
WHERE TO STAY
I did fall in love with the bath though. It skeeves me out to a degree to bathe in a bathtub that's not mine and hasn't been personally cleaned by me. However, the tub was super deep and comfortable and amazing so I couldn't resist a bubble bath.
Milan has an awesome public transportation system consisting of an underground metro and above ground trams and buses. It's super easy to use and there's a day pass (unlimited rides in 24 hours) for €4.50, which is awesome considering a single ride is €1.50. Milan is also an easily walkable city, as it's really flat and the roads are nicely paved and there isn't much cobblestone to contend with. The last option I recommend is the bike share. You're required to sign up online (you can't just walk up to the station kiosk and shove in a credit card) so that's a little annoying, but you can just plan ahead.
Of course, travel via car is also an option but really, it's not a great option. I don't recommend renting a car to use around the city, as parking is difficult to find and can be expensive and traffic is rather annoying. Taking taxis can be useful but I'd only resort to cabs in the evening when public transportation is no longer an option.
DO, SEE, & EAT
There's also the Castello Sforzesco and several museums if you're into art and history. There's a little of everything here.
