Are spring breakers the reason Europeans can’t stand Americans?

Are spring breakers the reason Europeans can’t stand Americans? Video from Milano, Italy.

I have never been fortunate enough to go to Europe but my relatives overseas say its better that way due to the reputation of Americans.


Spring break in Milan, Italy and destroying furniture.

In this video it is not hard to see why Americans leave a bad taste in Europeans mouths.


After all if someone from Milan came to the states for spring break, got crazy and started destroying furniture, would we gladly invite them back?


I think when I finally do get to take a trip to Europe, I will try and disguise my American roots as much as possible so I won’t feel embarrassed about wild youth like this guy.

Facts about Milan (from wikipedia)
Milan is one of the largest cities in Italy, located in the plains of Lombardy, and is one of the most highly developed urban centres in Europe.

The municipality (Comune di Milano) has a population of 1.3 million. The population of the urban area, that coincides with the Province of Milan, is estimated as of 2006 to be 3,884,481 [1]. Finally, the population of the Milan metropolitan area counts over 7.4 million residents, the largest in Italy. The municipal border covers a relatively small area (about one-eighth of that of Rome) because of the historical development of high density centres in agriculturally rich Lombardy.

Milan is also renowned as one of the world capitals of design and fashion. Indeed the English word milliner is derived from the name of the city. The Lombard metropolis is famous for its fashion houses and shops (such as along via Montenapoleone) and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in the Piazza Duomo (reputed to be the world's oldest shopping mall). The city hosted the World Exposition in 1906 and has submitted a bid to BIE to host the Universal Expo in 2015. Inhabitants of Milan are referred to as "Milanese."
