For a first timer at the Milan Central Station, the experience was overwhelming. I wish there was an information deck or a map somewhere. I arrived from Florence via the Trenitaly, it spits you out on the 3rd floor. If you're to take the city metro, you'd need to get to the lower level. Anyway, I'd booked the Malpensa Express... More

Be careful when buying tickets at the automatic machines...people hover around looking like station staff offering advice and 'helping' you to buy tickets.....they are not employed by the station and can get aggressive if you don't tip them. The machines are very easy to use .

At the ground floor train station, be very careful of your belongings, especially near the tickets machine. If you were going to take the metro underground, you had better buy the tickets in tobacco shop instead of buying tickets from the vending machines. My husband and I were robbed by two thieves who standed next to us - they grabbed... More

When you arrive or depart from here, keep an eye on your valuables whether at the station or in the trains before it departs. Be very very selfish and help no one, no good returns here, only bad memories. Don't let it spoil your holiday

Take care to people that want to help you for have a ticket from the machines. After the help want the coins (3-5 euros for the help !!). Also if... More

If you are unfortunate to arrive in Milan via the Central Station, keep an eye on your belongings and get out of the area a.s.a.p. The area surrounding the station is littered with vagrants, alcoholics, pick-pockets and thieves - who hardly disguise their criminal intent. There is a surprising lack of police presence, which makes easy pickings of unsuspecting visitors.... More
