It has a huge and unique facade, among the nicest ones in the world. The space is large enough around to admire its beauty.

Within moments of narrowly avoiding a luggage scam ourselves, we watched two young women thrown off of our first class train carriage by other passengers having been caught going through passenger luggage. Goes to show you can't be too careful. Security definitely needs to be upgraded.

With a façade 200 metres wide and a canopied vault of 72 metres high, the 24 platforms seem to stretch forever, serving 120 million passengers from all over Europe. But beneath the trappings of the shopping center that has invaded all corners of the station, one can still see the symbols that represented the power of the former fascist regime.... More

Wow, this is an impressive station. Designed to make you feel small and is very successful in that design. Huge impressive architecture and plenty of shops both inbuilt and stalls as you leave. You must stop here for a look as you won't be disappointed.

The Stazione Centrale is an architectural gem! However, the place is slightly dirty and one certainly has to be careful of pick-pocketing. For tourists, getting around is slightly difficult, since most of the maps and signs are in Italian. There are many different shops, so shopping here during the January sales was a pleasure!

Great station to catch all the trains to different parts of Europe. You can also catch airport shuttle from the train station. One thing that impressed me most this recent trip was - I left my baggage on the platform and left for Lake Como. Two hours later, I got back my bag - untouched! The police got hold of... More

Watch your back at the kiosks! Gypsies are everywhere - they will block the train entrances demanding tips or will attempt to reach for loose Euros at the kiosks. This is why there is such a long line for the in-person ticket booths. However, there is a 6 Euro surcharge for using them as well.

Beautiful building. This train station is big, it's efficient and it has a number of shops and restaurants. It also has a lot of seating for those waiting on trains. Like other locations of this sort in Italy, you have to be aware of pickpockets. Keep bags and purses closed and secured. Don't leave anything unattended.

I took the fast train from Venice to Milan and arrived at this station at the late evening. The train station has free WIFI access which is good for travellers like me to plan the next stop(unlike the station at Rome, Florence and Venice). The building of this station is probably one of the most beautiful train station i have... More
