Got back late Sunday evening from a great weekend in Milan with the family on the back of a work trip to this cracking city.

We had the greatest time, taking in the sights, walking, walking & walking! It's a beautiful place, and the people were very gracious, coping with my fumbling almost non-existant Italian. It's amazing how far you can get with a "Grazie" a smile & a pointed finger!

Hi John,
We are going to Lake Garda in the summer and plan on a visit to Milan. Worried about the lack of Italian etc, but thanks for the tip of "Grazie" a smile and pointing finger!
Your family are gorgeous :-) Glad Roots was great too...our folk came back raving about "others". Think it may have a lasting affect too, which is fab. Love to our friends at Croydon.

No need to worry. The Italians will look after you
