The best train station that I have ever seen in Italy

I do not know why, maybe because of its historical background or artistic statues, I really like this train station better than the others in Italy. There are so many stores and... read more

I do not know why, maybe because of its historical background or artistic statues, I really like this train station better than the others in Italy. There are so many stores and the architecture is very beautiful inside and outside. I always feel some kind of an excitement when I arrive to this station. Even if you are not arriving... More

What a beautiful station.had a few visits here whilst on a city break in Milan as the airport bus stopped here and we got trains to Venice and Florence for days out from here too. Beautiful building and good shops and places to eat in here too

We got the train from Turin to Milan 1 hour in total. We got off and arrived to the hustle and bustle of a major train station but ones away from the platforms this place is stunning. Lots of staff to help and advise and ticket machines easy to use

A huge imposing structure with a heavy dose of state supremacy. The huge halls and artwork are purposely designed to make you feel small and insignificant compared to the ruling Fascist party of the time. None the less, this is a sight that should not be missed in Milan. To arrive from the airport take the Malpensa express train that... More

The Central Station of Milan is an imposing place, with a massive façade and marble and stone interiors. A mix of styles and architectures, there is definitely some influence of Mussolini's ideas of grandeur. Do take a look around!

Most of the world's iconic train stations often get a bad rap. They usually attract the unsavory elements of society (gangs, homeless, peddlers, beggars, pickpockets, etc...). But if you stop and look at the architecture of these grand structures from centuries gone by, there's always something to delight. I happen to be fascinated by grand train stations and whenever I...

The main train station in Milan looks like very little has done to upgrade the infrastructure in the past few decades. Approaching the station from Switzerland, the station has an appearance of an oversized metal barn. There are numerous old abandoned train cars and parts along the tracks just outside the station. While we were waiting for train to Venice,... More

I traveled alone with all my luggage aboard a high speed train from Milan to Florence. I am a 56 year young Grandma who never travels alone. This was an adventure for me. I took a cab from my hotel, the Crown Plaza near Linate airport, it took about 20 mins and cost me 25 euros and at 930 AM... More

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.
