The Central station is a hub for the city's internal Metro network and the regional train services. But what's really fascinating about this place is its architecture. The expanse is only fathomable once you are outside and a few 100 meters away !! This was the very station used in the Harry Potter movies and if you have seen even... More

Beautiful and old building, but be aware of thieves. Put your wallet in a safe place and keep your bag in front of you. "Weird" people are everywhere. From here you can take the train to Venice, 2h and you are there.

Milano Centrale station has 3 floors and is enormous. It was started in 1912 and completed during the Mussolini Fascist era and opened in 1931.The giant overhead roof was designed by Fava. The station restaurant is terrific and sells great beers and marvellous smoked ham and mozzarella salads. The signage is somewhat erratic which can make getting around tricky.The coach... More

Crime here is out of control, and very little seems to be being done about it. Be aware of your belongings, your surroundings, and situations you are about to walk into. In just 2 visits, I saw a team steal a woman's handbag at the top of an escalator, my partner was scammed at the ticket machine, and some men... More

Usually there will be 5 people as a group act in 3 teams. Team A: 2 man stand in front of the coach door, helping passengers to get their suitcases onto the train, after the help they will ask for money, if you pull out your wallet, and give them the money. They locate your wallet. Team B: there will... More

My sister's wallet took by a group of pickpockets. She lost about 1.500euro. Even people in the police station COULD'NT DO ANYTHING about it, they didn't do anything helpful. The station smell like dried pee, i did see a man peed on the station's wall infront of everyone who passes through him. Italy definitely the worst and messed up country... More

I arrived in Milan with my wife and we were approached by a guy who asked to walk us through the Train station ticket machine and I said No. We both walked over to another machine away from the guy and were approached again, this time by two Females, who distracted my Wife by being friendly and complimenting/looking at her...

It is really beautiful train station. If you are travelling with train, then you should be ready to take photos from the first moment you are approaching to the station. I was so impressed when I got off the train. If you like walking, when you get out of the station, you can walk to the centre and enjoy the... More

It's true, it's a beautiful train station and spoilt for choice when it comes to routes. But I would not visit the station just as an attraction, as there are numerous pick-pocketers and foreigners trying to trick you. I would suggest to read several tips (available online) before you visit the station as they were very useful to me. At... More
