Big busy station. Tip: If you need to purchase an international ticket (we were traveling from Italy to Zurich) you can use the ticket machines BUT you can only purchase the ticket using the Italian language interface. If you click on the screen for English, you will not be able to purchase the ticket. We were mistakenly told that all... More

It is a major station that connects to cities outside of Italy. I would say this is a major train hub. Be careful with your belongings! I've seen (should I say) non-locals who prowl on tourists, asking random questions (and trying to trick you and pickpocket you). Some would go around the ticket machines, seemingly trying to be helpful as... More

If you are in Milan this railway station is worth a visit, just to see the architecture. The entrance area is build like a stately building with interesting statues, the platform areas are however rather dull and boring.

This train station is very busy, but hold your items close and beware of ANYONE that approaches you. There is a team of Romanian/Bulgarian gypsy teens (some are small, look like children or are pregnant young women) that live at the train station and make a very handsome living off of robbing travelers. Here is my story: I was walking... More

Be certain, when you arrive by train in Milano. to notice the facade. Masterpiece of Italianate socialism there with plenty of Art Nouveau stylings inside the building -- very impressive. Lots of shopping, tho' gets a little sleepy when you're waiting for a night train. Very easy to maneuver within & plenty of eating options.

Central Station is a grand and beatiful building. You may enjoy its Art Nouvo architecture wandering around while waiting for smth or smbd. But keep in your mind that there is very weak wi-fi in this zone and if you need time to find yourself in the city, have a snack and discuss the plans - it is better to... More

This is a great train station--it's massive, bustling busy and super easy to use. Coming from Pittsburgh, PA in the USA, we are not users of public transportation (our Trolley system is bad!), but the Milano Centrale station is super easy for non-Italian speakers to navigate. The train-ticket staff are patient and helpful--I don't know how they do it! There... More

Milan's Central station is enormous with over 20 tracks. There is a handy bag drop off that is reasonably priced if you just want to pop into Milan without your luggage but the queues can be large at certain times so make sure you give yourself plenty of time when collecting as not to be late. Another tip is that... More

I experienced two different platform numbers. The one outside gave a different platform number, than the one inside. The inside one was the correct one.

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.
