This is a complex that includes the Metro, Airport buses and the Centrale train station. Well illuminated but watch your belongings even if there is a big police presence. The building is immense - full of unique retail stores and restaurants. There are 16 platforms with trains arriving on both sides. Boards display platform arrivals and departures but check where...

This is quite something too see. It is a stunning mix of big architectural styles that blend well. It is big and there is a lot to see - very grand. I really would recommend a visit even if not catching a train - is easy to get to (has good transport links) and is a pick up for the... More

The central station of Milan, is a building with beautiful architecture in the roofs. Nice LED advertisements and a stretch of platforms. With a separator the trains stop on both side of the platforms. 16 Platforms from end to end will not take more than 10 -15 mins end to end even if you are in the last compartment of... More

I love it for its overthetop architecture, it's worth strolling around just looking at all the decorations in the walls. It's a very busy station in the peak of the summer travelling season, so not so enjoyable if you get stuck in huge crowds!

When travelling to Milan, we often use the train to get out & in Milan. It is a large train station but easy to get around even at night.

We arrived from Malpensa Airport by coach. The Stazione Centrale looked quite nice, but the atmosphere in there was not good. It was unfortunate that our camera suddenly disappeared and we couldn't find any security to report it.. We then looked for a taxi to take us to our final destination, but couldn't find any.. quite frustrating.. We couldn't wait... More

Impressive architectural interesting train station. I liked the contrast of the old and the new, very contemporary just as you step outside the station. Metro Station is right there in front of the building, but you need to take elevator downstairs.

The central station is a great architectural example of imponent train station from Fascist period. It is huge and with great paintings and after a very bad period (thief, dirt) it is now a nice place to wait with many shops. What i suggest is: La Feltrinelli for book, Sephora for make up, Bar Centrale for a coffee and a... More

If you are waiting for a train (not that you'll have a long wait, they run on schedule, unlike Amtrak), go toward the front of the station and instead of going outside, take the escalator downstairs. The deli and prepared foods section of the supermarket you'll find there looked so-so, but the sushi is superb! I said what? Sushi in... More

Big and very crowdy train station. Inside there are a lot of stores for making some shopping while waiting for the train. Nice architecture and arches.

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.
