Stazione cantrale "Central railway station Milan" Very impressing building one may think he is in a museum and not A railway station. Worthwhile walking in this building mainly the upper floors. There is a shopping mall hidden in the basement with relatively high-end stores. If you're about to cross this station but to take 20 minutes to explore the site.

The Central Station is easily accessed by several subway lines. Travelers seem to be helpful. There are several levels. Lines for tickets are long ans slow so be advised to buy tickets on line (see Trenitalia site www.trenitalia.com/‎) or from the vending machines. The machines are balky and may not take your credit card--I needed to use my debit card.... More

Wow what a station! The building is magnificent and huge but not intimidating. It has great shops on the street level - Guess, Desigual, Zara etc and lots of great looking cafes. Most impressed.

This is one of the great train stations of Europe. If you are making a connection to other trains, take two hours and hop a subway to the Duomo and the Galleria. It's worthwhile. The main center is extremely touristy - with all of the annoying panhandlers and street salespeople - but the architecture is impressive. It's easily accessible, and... More

Beautiful building. It didn't smell bad at all (as another reviewer mentioned - not sure where they walked, though). Go to a little cafe called V'yta (prounced vee-ta) for good, "inexpensive" (for a train station) espresso / macchiatos and breads. Get there early for your train - we had already booked our train from Milan - Naples, but the people... More

The hustle and bustle at the Milan Central Station was so great, and the line so long that we decided to hold it in a bit more and down a few escalator ramps to the metro where we took one stop to Republic Square where we were amazed to discover the most sleek super modern toilet in all of Italy....

Glorious architecture sets this train station apart from most in Europe. It just underwent a lot of improvements to spruce it up for the Milan Expo. Most trains to and from Milan come in here, but not all. Like, the TGV trains from France use Porta Garibaldi instead! Be aware! The suburban train lines stop near the central station, but... More

We had to change trains in Milan and had a fairly lengthy time to wait - a good thing since our tickets had to be printed out on site. I went down to the ticket office and tried to use the automated machines, but it didn't want to work. So I got to stand in line for well over an... More

Neighborhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
