InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Milan

Hello to all Americans in Milan! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Milan? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Milan which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Milan’s cityscape might not offer the same historical charm as Rome or Florence, for example, but the city still has much to offer. The prosperous heart of northern Italy is a metropolitan city known for its seven universities, the incredible opera house (La Scala) and the role Milan played in the development of the Italian opera, its influential fashion and design scene, and much more! With the available underground, suburban, and regional trains, bus services, and tram lines, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in areas such as Quarto Oggiaro or Rogoredo, which are a short commute away from Milan’s center.

Although Milan has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Milan, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
