A magnificent and grand structure. While the US was wallowing in the depression, the Italians were building their country along the fascist model that has since successfully been copied by Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and now China. It's a model that works. Too bad the Italians made the mistake of aligning themselves with the German Psycho. While the US... More

You just cannot buy your ticket in peace from the machines as pick.pocketers target you every single second. With absolutely no police presence around whatsoever. What a disgrace ! You threaten them with police and they just laugh be arrogant and stay around you. Hate the place !

We always stay near Central Station while in Milan so we rushed thru going back & forth to the hotel. It was only one day when we were waiting on a friend to arrive from Geneva that I actually was able to appreciate this structure of beauty! It is a massive and I would say a very stately structure.

Definitely impressive both inside and out. Amazing such a beautiful structure with vaulted ceilings, marble and massive columns was built to be used as a train station. With shops and restaurants inside, you will have no problem passing the time as you wait to get on the right track.

According to my research this station has the only left luggage in Milan. Since we were here for only a few hours and wanted to see the sites we left our bags here. It is located all the way on the basement level. If you plan on getting your tickets through a machine do not use the kiosks on the... More

I was in awe the moment I walked into this place, the huge vaulted ceilings and marble wrapping the walls. WOW! You'll probably hit this spot at some point during your trip, especially if traveling to other places in Italy being that this is the main station. If not, you can get here via the metro, the stop is a... More

You could spend more hours enjoying the activities, drinking and eating while you are waiting your train but when you arrive to this station, you are rushing yourself to leave out as soon as possible. It's crowded and has all type of connections and local transportation. Not far from the Duomo area by metro or taxi.

Originally based on Washington Union Station, - but along came El Duce Mussolini and threw in his several euros worth. Completed in 1931, and with 24 platforms - it handles about 120 million passengers yearly - and with no "Watch the Gap." This is a huge station with bas-relief, columns, statues and a 72 metre marble vault. The station was... More

Nice building and location of station. Helpful staff. Decor was nice and structure solid. Many taxis, and transportation just feet from entrance.
