milan stopover

by muzeve

We will be staying in Milan for a two night, one day stopover, and want to get some suggestions on what to do. We are staying about 10 minutes tram ride from central station,close by and will of course visit the duomo. Other suggestions are castello S forzesco, fashion district and basilica di S. Ambrogio. Any other suggestions would be apreciated for a full day of sightseeing, and maybe some cheap eateries and not so expensive bars or nightclubs. Would love to be lucky enough to catch a game of football, but am only there 31st august and 1st september.
Any suggestions would be much apreciated.

If you love art a visit to the Brera gallery is a must. There are masterpiecs by Mantegna, Bellini and other great artists. Also the paintings by artists of the 19th century are beautiful. By the way, the area around it is full of nice restaurants.

Not sure if you want to stay in Milan, but for a full day sightseeing I would take the train and go to Varenna in Lago di Como - this is a real treat! You take the train towards Tirano off Milano Centrale and just get off in Varenna, Plenty of eateries and beautiful places to walk and explore. There are many other towns, Bellagio for one, but I found Varenna less congested and very enjoyable. You can take a slow boat from Varenna to Como, take the funicular in Como, walk around there a bit, then take the train from Como to the Cadorna station in Milan - from Cadorna you can take the Metro to Milano Centrale.

This is a very nice day.

The Duomo in Milan is one of the best I've seen, you'll be glad that you made it the first choice on your list. Be sure to go up on the roof. It's a wonderful experience.

May I add that there is an Autogrille not far from the Duomo which has a good selection of reasonably priced sandwiches, baguettes and the like, for a quick lunch.

Travel Tips for Milan

And where to stand inside the stadium

by Calcio

As a “first-time-ever at San Siro”-visitor, or just a neutral supporter, I suggest you to buy a ticket at the second stage, in the red or orange stand. From there you’ll see the game really good, be able to listen to the atmosphere, and not pay a smaller fortune for the ticket. In general, a ticket for these seats, costs 25-28 euro each.
In the curva, the tickets of course costs less. But you also see the game worse. It you aren’t used to go to San Siro I advice you to not buy a ticket for the supporter-sector (Curva Sud/Nord second stage) since it’s difficult for any newcomers to know where to stand or not to stand. The whole stadium is with numbered seats, but in the second stage of the homecurva everyone stands up, and you won’t have your own seat.
If you, despite of this, want to go there, I suggest that you go as far up, and as far away from the middle as possible. There you probably won’t find any problems.
And, don’t be surprised when people starts to smoke joints… ;)

Pack light!

by Marpessa

Large bags with enough room in them for your new purchases - Milan is one of the shopping capitals of the world!! Comfortable shoes for all the shopping you are going to do (and for walking from Il Duomo to Castello Sforzesco). Any photo equipment you need you should be able to buy here - and believe me there are many beautiful things you will want to take photos of... so make sure you've got enough film/memory and batteries.

Shopping tour in the fashion city

by Polly74 about Fashion and leather

We can begin our itinerary from the heart of the luxury shopping area in Milan: Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga and Via Sant'Andrea, elegant streets that together with Via Manzoni, Via Borgospesso and Via Santo Spirito are the outer limits of the famous Fashion Quadrilatero. This area contains the most prestigious boutiques and showrooms in the world, full of minimalist design and high tech, that follow on without any nd to this continuity, and provide a triumph of consumer stimulus that only a select few can respond to. In this square area, that is really extremely expensive, luxury is the true protagonist. Dazzling jewels created by the most famous name, clothes and accessories to die for, to be owned and flaunted, shoes that are works of art. Everything reeks of ostentation and the splendor of a chic, fashionable lifestyle. Many foreign tourists come to the showrooms and come out full of parcels, because Italian fashion continues to attract and fascinate the whole world, and Milan is the most representative symbol of all this.

Room 97

by Flamegirl about Room 97

Another of the "international hotspots" of Milan thanks to reduced entry prices for Erasmus students, I heard more English spoken here than Italian. Young crowd, mostly under-25s.

Apart from someone nicking my mobile phone the first time I came here, it's not a bad place. Set in the basement like so many Milan clubs, there are no wide spaces so the atmosphere is quite intimate. However, I didn't find it anything special. House/commercial music mainly except for 70s/80s and RnB on Thursdays, which is meant to be the best evening. casual

Cadorna Express from Malpenza

by muratkorman

When you arrive in Malpenza Airport, you are quite far from the city center. Taking a taxi will cost more than 50 Euros and few people would be keen to pay that much money. The cheapest way to reach city center is to take the shuttle bus which operates regularly, but you have another option. Cadorna express is an express train from Malpenza airport to Cadorna train station which is in the city center. Compared to arriving in Central station with the shuttle bus, reaching Cadorna is more convenient and closer to city center. You can take metro, bus or tram to reach your destination. It costs 9 Euros and the journey takes 45 minutes. It is more comfortable than shuttle bus and if you don't need to reach somewhere close to Central station, I suggest Cadorna Express.
