Our hotel was round the corner from the station and we had taken a walk around the station during the day and at night and it was absolutely crawling with down and out wasters. So when we had to take a train to como we were not surprised to find them in the station in the morning. One guy was... More

I took a train here to France. The stations is huge, bright and beautiful. A shop lady here almost overcharged me for a bottle of water, just because I didn't speak Italian, which was really harsh. And the people around me didn't help me. That was a nightmare in the station. A bad beginning of my impression of Italy.

When we were to board the train in Milan, for a connection trip to Venice, our train from Genova arrived late and we had to run to catch the train to Venice. When we reach our carriage/coach, we were approached by 3 men pretending to help us board with our luggage, for the train was due to go. One grabbed... More

Slow, slow ,slow ticket machines on the platform. We entered the Visa card number three times for two E12 trip to Malpensa Airport, only to find on checking our balance that we'd bought six tickets in total. The helpful gentleman by the machine warned us our train was about to depart and we could buy tickets on the train, so... More

We had a four-hour, late evening layover in the Milano Centrale, between taking a train from Rome's Termini and boarding an overnight train to Paris. I was very concerned given what I had read here and elsewhere about safety, avoiding pickpockets, etc. We made detailed plans to keep our family together and safe. Here are a few tips if you... More

Travel in to Milan Centrale every year on the way to ski in the Valtellina area. Be very wary of smiling, helpful girl gangs as they are out to pilfer. Every angle of nicetey here has to be rewarded with a handout especially if you are struggling with your luggage. Not one or two euros, it has to be 5... More

Having successfully tricked the pickpocket ladies in Rome MRT by using empty wallet, I could not imagine that I can be pickpocketed in an intercountry train in Milano Centrale. It was happened in the train when I just boarded. I carried a big luggage and tried to find a place to store it in the wagon. There were two ladies,... More

The central halls to this station are very large with curved ceilings. With many trains coming and going, this place is extremely busy. With this amount of tourists comes the inherent problems with the trolley men and 'others' roaming the station. There are lots of shops, places to eat or just watch the world go by.
