I have travelled around the globe and i have to admit that this is the most beautifully impressive train station in the world. Much more impressive than Grand central in NYC. Now, recently renovated, hosts many nice shops, cafes and also restaurants and is lively spot almost 24/7! The station is architecturally devided into 4 large galleries, decorated with sculptures,...

The building is beautiful. The station is well organized. The shopping galleries are fine. The restaurant and fast food places are convenient. It is connected to the metro network, with a station in the basement. That is very convenient. You can find buses to the airport and other destinations. This saves the cost of expensive taxi rides.

Now this is a train station that has a most spectacular facade and huge interior. We always travel Europe by train and take a lot of notice of the stations as they give you an idea of the times when train travel was the only way to get around. The forecourt here at Milan Central station has been completely closed... More

Few years ago this place was horribly dirty and run down with really obsolete infrastructure and few if any shops. Now it is much better: more info panels, clean(er), less train delays happening just in the station ... Still it is close to impossible to find a public toiler, I am not sure there's one at all. Appalling. Unfortunately it... More

On 4/25/15 my wife and I arrived at Milan Centrale via train from Rome. We made the mistake of traveling by metro to our hotel in Milan. We boarded the crowded metro at Centrale each with a rolling bag and a small carry on. Two young ladies pushed us into the train between 2 young men with bicycles. The ladies... More

As we were boarding EuroCity 12 heading to Zurich, two suspicious looking men, appearing looking for their seats, tried to pull one of our luggages away. As we were watching our luggages, a group of young women suddenly rushed through the narrow space in the aisle. I felt my shoulder bag was dragged away and then I dragged it back.... More

When we arrived from Stresa to Milan for a day out, we were very surprised by the grandeur of this station. There are lovely shops i.e. MAC and Sephora, and cafes. But it was a little old looking and gloomy. However the train service ran like clockwork and we were happy with the service provided.

If you view the Central Station from the outside, you would never go inside. The exterior is in total disrepair and needs,to be renovated. The inside, however, is spectacular. It reminds me of NY Central station. In its glory days this Central station must have been a show stopper. I would not put this on the top of the list... More

This is my favorite waiting... place! While you're waiting for the train take a walk around the building and take photos of the interesting architeture. Grab something to eat, enjoy an espresso and buy a little something from the stores there! Time flies there! Extra tip: Visit the station during Xmas, it's dreamy!
