Easy to navigate the station and visitor information was helpful. Ticket purchase was very efficient, just like DMV in the US so you can get help and ask questions rather than have to figure out the machines.

This is one of the most beautiful central stations I've ever seen: massive, extremely decorated (statues, plasters, ...) and symbol of the growing economy of the city decades ago. Due to obvious reasons, it is extremely crowded at all times, making it harder to appreciate its beauty.

The station was large, serving trains, buses, the subway, etc. It was easy to use and the trains and buses were on time and well marked.

Nice architecture but full of shady types and thieves. I have seen them stealing change after "helping" at ticket machines but that was petty. We had nasty experience when boarding a train to Venice: Upon the train arrival I noticed that several men positioned themselves by the train doors. They were locals - no luggage, no tickets, not in a... More

This was our first stop on an interrail holiday. The station was relatively easy to navigate. However having just arrived in Milan and unsure of where to head to head to the lack of maps of the city was a pain.

we took a day trip from bergamo to Milan and the first thing that hits you is the size of this station, its jaw dropping, we actually just stood and looked up which made it clear that we were tourists. the concourse of the station looks like its thronging with commuters but once your eyes adjust you ll see that...

Like others, I do agree that the overall building is completely stunning as expected of roman architecture; from it's massive columns and open space. We took the Freccia to Rome and back and I found those trains both comfortable. (We stayed in the economy seats) I cannot emphasise just how important to book train tickets online, the earlier the better... More
