“Take a hop on hop off bus to get you there! Bring a camera, an appetite and money! Lots of shops and food places, especially gelato! And of course lots of shopping!! But the scenery will totally blow you away!!”
“Old but still nice. The legendary reputation of its tenants, AC Milan and Inter, still give historical charm to thr the stadium.”
“It was very pleasant to stay here. We recommend that you stay in the Ibis Styles Milano hotel. The staff were nice and the food and rooms were good. ”
“A fun and safe pedestrian street with lively cafes and stores adjacent to the Porta Nuova skyscrapers”
“Crowded shopping mall with high end stores but the shade cools you down after Duomo tour”
“Nice to finally see this famous opera house. It was easy to buy tickets to the museum at the time of entry.”
“Magnificent museum, one of the top ten of Italy for sure. Superb for Lombard painting not well represented in other Western museums.”
“Great hotel and located across Centrale Station which is the main station to travel to many places in Italy and Europe”
“Average district for intellectuals. No Greenwich Village or North London, much less Saint Germain!”
“much enticing at night if you want bars n restaurants. and daytime u can go shopping.”
Milan is great for shopping n eating good museums. We were robbed so it’s gotten very dangerous someone got into my purse and stole our money! The train station is very frightening lots of people just roaming around the central train station and out side.
It's great if you are going for the fashion, and there are a few touristic places to go and see. We stayed for a short period, and I have stayed a couple of times before. In terms of what Italy as a whole has to offer, Milan isn't high on my list. Still worth chalking it off your list, as there is plenty to offer.
When upon arriving into Milan it was cold and rainy and miserable. We had plan a 2 night stay and left after one. While the Duomo is a sight to see on a Friday night it’s not the place to be too many people locals and tourists as it seems it’s a local hangout with the mall and store and cute cafes. But it seems staff at the cafes are not very friendly might but due to the extreme amount of people!!!!
Milan is a beautiful, modern city with many things to see. I'd recommend doing the half day walking tour with Viator which gives you a great overview of the central City. Wish we had stayed longer to see more! The metro system is good and Eady to navigate.
The history and architecture was so worth the trip. The food and locals were awesome! I would def recommend doing hop on hop off bus tours! So worth the money! And if you plan on going to see The Last Supper , either get your tickets months ahead of time or show up around 8 am when they know how many cancellations they had for the day and you can maybe snag one but no guarantee. Also , if you go there , there’s a little print/tourist shop across from there that is absolutely amazing and you can but souvenirs much cheaper than st the museum itself. This little Italian man makes almost everything in his shop! So worth the stop in even if you don’t buy a thing !!
Big city with some old world charm. Great food at all price ranges. Be careful buying your tickets that might be “vouchers” with an agency & you may not get a ticket when you arrive at the museum or tour! Also, safeguard your passport, money & valuables from pickpockets! Awareness, not fear. Shopping is great!
