When we were to board the train in Milan, for a connection trip to Venice, our train from Genova arrived late and we had to run to catch the train to Venice. When we reach our carriage/coach, we were approached by 3 men pretending to help us board with our luggage, for the train was due to go. One grabbed... More

Slow, slow ,slow ticket machines on the platform. We entered the Visa card number three times for two E12 trip to Malpensa Airport, only to find on checking our balance that we'd bought six tickets in total. The helpful gentleman by the machine warned us our train was about to depart and we could buy tickets on the train, so... More

We had a four-hour, late evening layover in the Milano Centrale, between taking a train from Rome's Termini and boarding an overnight train to Paris. I was very concerned given what I had read here and elsewhere about safety, avoiding pickpockets, etc. We made detailed plans to keep our family together and safe. Here are a few tips if you... More

Travel in to Milan Centrale every year on the way to ski in the Valtellina area. Be very wary of smiling, helpful girl gangs as they are out to pilfer. Every angle of nicetey here has to be rewarded with a handout especially if you are struggling with your luggage. Not one or two euros, it has to be 5... More

Having successfully tricked the pickpocket ladies in Rome MRT by using empty wallet, I could not imagine that I can be pickpocketed in an intercountry train in Milano Centrale. It was happened in the train when I just boarded. I carried a big luggage and tried to find a place to store it in the wagon. There were two ladies,... More

The central halls to this station are very large with curved ceilings. With many trains coming and going, this place is extremely busy. With this amount of tourists comes the inherent problems with the trolley men and 'others' roaming the station. There are lots of shops, places to eat or just watch the world go by.

I honestly did not recognize anything "attraction" worthy of this place and am not sure why anyone would go out of their way to visit unless you need to catch some sort of transportation. I had no problem with shady people, although someone did help me with my luggage and find my seat (but then asked for 5 Euros after).... More

Looks great, but drug dillers would sell you drugs near the toilet. As for me such incident spoils the rest of the day. And no police officer around. Only near to the platform.
