We enjoyed our stay in Via Thaon very much. The apartment is on the top floor, very light with light coming in from both sides. It's still quite despite being in the centre. The area has everything you need in reach, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, metro and tram stations, an off-street parking lot. It's quick to get to the centre where the tourists clutter up, but it's nice to live a bit off the tourist tracks and get a better sense of a slightly gentrifying Milan.
The apartment itself is very well equipped, with everything you need, dishwasher, espresso machine, washing machine, wifi.... It has a comfortable layout and two bathrooms, which makes it comfortable to stay with four or more people. You can comfortably enjoy the good Italian cuisine, as this apartment has built in exercise with 90+ steps in a beautiful old staircase.
Thanks to the very responsive landlords, if we ever come back to Milan, we'll be back in this apartment.
