Most wait at the main Indicator board for info on which platform their train will leave from.As soon as the train gets a platform the people then move fairly quickly to the train. as there are 1920 or so platforms and this is a busy station, that can lead to a food deal of confusion. FrecciaRossa train seem to leave... More

Great central location (thus central station), and a beautiful train station. Others have written to be careful with your things- well, shouldn't you do that everywhere. We had no issues, and love the scene/ Just keep your eyes open and you'll be fine here.

It is a wonderful building and great setting for a movie opener. The place is a veritable beehive of activity, it's invigorating to arrive by train and see all the parts in motion. But I have spent way too much time here over the years, I have been caught in a rail strike trying to get to Venice, this year... More

Easy to spot band of thieves well dressed young girls with babies in front packs. Work the train when boarding press up against you or pretend to be in your seat. At least two robbed in our ec34 1st class car. Didn't get mine thanks to earlier warnings. They will get purses out of bags too. Be alert.

Within one week we had to travel in and out to this giant station three times. When we start boarding the train to Venice, a few young women followed us and offered help for the direction of the car and caring our luggage; we just kept walking toward to the last car, 1st class; before we stepped into the car,...

My husband and I travelled around Italy during September and October this year and saw a few different train stations - and it turns out that this was one of the more attractive ones! Rather busy but otherwise efficient.

Milano centrale is very well located in Milan at around 30 minutes walk to Piazza dell Duomo. The place is huge and lots of tramps, drugs addicts along with beggers are the common picture when you arrive. there are some coffee shops, shops, news agent Inside and snack bars. There is almost nothing outside except office buildings

This station really represents Italy's social and economic crisis. Around the station it's full of homeless people, the area looks quite dangerous, and it's a little bit dirty, too. You can also see children sleeping in cardboard boxes. It's a shame for Milan (in theory Italy's richest city) and a shame for Italy.

It's an impressive place that combine the old style of a great central station with the new and modernisme style... all of this in a pleasant but chaotic way at the same time. Is characterized by chaotic crowd typical of all big central stations. A place that stirs emotions, nerves and for some people nostalgic memories. Be careful to the... More
