I'm no expert on Italy, having only been to Venice, and very briefly poked my nose into Rome, but I do know butt ugly when I see it and I think Milan (where I am currently living) fits the description well. Those who are kinder would probably make comments about all the nice places that are accessible from it. Also, if you are going to be ugly then you should at least have the decency to be cheap, but Milan is a rip-off. So, what do those who know Italy far better than me think? Am I being unfair, or is Milan the most expensive and ugliest city in all of Italy?
