On arrival into Milan from Genoa we passed through the business end of the station and found this amazing entrance way with huge ceilings and great architecture. You can feel the history of this fine city on your arrival. Plenty of small shops and cafes here and very reasonible

We had to get our Eurail coupon validated. Luckily we had plenty of time to do this (2 hours). However the queuing system in the ticket office is a disaster. You take a ticket, and wait, and wait and wait. We waited almost two hours for a simple stamp! Only about 30% of the ticket counters were staffed. The entire... More

Fantastic architecture and relatively easy to navigate considering its size. There are a number of places to grab a quick bite to eat and it offers easy access to metro lines. Just be careful when purchasing train or metro tickets as many people try to "help" you and ask for or steal your money!

Very grand and beautiful station. A lot of shops and restaurants. However, the station gave me a very bad impression of the city. The city has to do something about the Romanians, gypsies or whatever the hell they are in the station. They stand in the ticket vending machine waiting to rob you and lots of them beg for money...

The central station is impressive. It was designed to be. It was built during the Fascist period to say we are a great people, and we are back! It is a magnificent structure and a joy to behold. Not as impressive as Grand Central station, but with many attractive features. There are interior mosaics harkening back to roman times on... More

Thank god that the restorations took place because it doesn't have that scary Mussolini hell feeling, as it used to. It is a beautiful structure however you still have to be attentive while inside. Too many loiterers doing jack all waiting to punk you. When you arrive pay attention, when you are buying a ticket folks tend to hang out... More

I was fearing the worst having read so many bad things about this station, however we had no problems. It is a beautiful building, but what lets it down is when you walk out of the middle exit to a strong smell of urine. The authorities really should clean up their act here because it gives a bad first impression... More
