Impressive from every angle you see it, this central station has a presence I haven't seen in any other building yet. Massive, with several levels including shops, tickets and eateries, it houses a huge long distance train station and the metro station. Must visit in Milan.

To begin, Milano Centrale railway station is quite convenient as it connects Malpensa airport with the city as well as the city with other major cities in Italy. But beyond using it for travelling, there are lots of other things you could there. Admiring its architectural size and elegance is one of them. Moreover you could do your shopping as... More

The nice thing about the station is that it is vast and spacious with all the amenities. Buses for the airport are easy to find and just outside. Unlike many large cities the Milan station serves as a hub to many principal cities in different directions. Also easy to get to attractions via the metro. Construction must have been a... More

Not only it has always been a wonderful mix of art nouveau and art deco and Milenese have cherished it with great attention, maintenance and renovation. Today not only can one admire its architectural beauty but may enjoy a shopping esprit before taking off their next ride. There are plenty of shops including a nice bookstore. Rides from and to...

What a Fascist structure. Magnificent, and they spoil it with trains and shops. The architecture is huge, the staircases could be in a palace.

Nothing bad, however please arrive early it is worth spending time doing nothing instead of getting stuck without knowing how to reach the platform. It is quite difficult find out the way, the indication are hardly in English in addition the luggage counter was in a pitiable situation. There was only one person to manage the counter. No porters available.

There are three main airports that access Milan, Italy as well as a small general aviation airport. Malpensa Airport is the main international airport. For an affordable transfer from Milan Central Station consider taking a bus. I took Malpensa Shuttle which is on the left side of central station if facing the front of the building. The cost 8 Euro... More

Stunning and overwhelming piece of architecture... Colossal sized station. Staff very helpful .. I tried my tiny Italian to purchase return tickets to lake Como. Fortunately the staff can speak a few languages! Easy pleasant transaction, easy to move through the very busy station!

Neighborhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
