Good area for lodging?

by basstbn

We are two "advanced middle-agers"/"young seniors" arriving in Milan mid-September. Spending two nights in Milan. Considering several hotels and B&Bs in the vicinity of the central train station. Should we be concerned about the neighborhood? We are not likely to be out late at night, but will want to see a little of the city after dark. Your feedback appreciated.

Re: Good area for lodging?

Areas around large European railway stations always attract some 'interesting' people. But, as a single middle-aged female traveller, that does not bother me and, imo, nor should it bother you. Looking 'interesting' does not mean that any threat is posed.

If you were wandering alone late at night, or in the early hours, perhaps you would need to be rather wary. But you will find Italian streets busy with people until really quite late (Italians eat out later than in many parts of Europe, for example).

Take the usual precautions you would in any big city: stay alert, keep valuables hidden in different places on your person (leave those you do not need in the hotel safe), don't make eye contact or get drawn into interactions with beggars, hawkers, touts or those who wish to engage you with questions (just say a firm 'No, grazie' and keep walking), avoid badly-lit and deserted areas late at night.

Remember that in Europe (including Italy) the main concerns are those of pickpocketing and opportunistic theft, rather than muggings and hold-ups. Do not provide the opportunity, stay alert and just use your normal city common sense.

I'm sure you'll have a brilliant time! :-)

leics is bang-on on this one. When I was in Milan (solo female, 42), I stayed about 2 blocks away from the train station, and wandered around the dark streets and alleyways after the shops closed before heading off to bed. The atmosphere was quite relaxed, and I didn't feel any threatening vibes from anyone at any time. It really reminds me that I should go back there and sample that brilliant lasagna I had at a restaurant directly across the street from the train station--you know it's good when the place is packed and more are lining up outside the doorway! Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Milan

La Scala

by Klod5

Difficult to work in the cultural area, to surrender in Milano, and not to be going to see this mythical monument that is La Scala. Alas, it was closed at every time that we presented ourselves before the doors.

"Telefonino" Mania!

by draguza

Italians are so obsessed with their mobile phones, they cannot separate for one second from them, and sometimes they just show off in using them even when it is not necessary or it is inappropriate!
Bad, bad habit!

The Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, better known as Cattolica, is a huge complex situated right behind the basilica of Sant' Ambrogio. Besides teology, university has different faculties. It has implemented the Socrates-Erasmus programme, that will enable foreign students to study for a certain period of time.

You like it cool, very cool

by Ritchie_Lionheart about Absolut Icebar Milano

The bar, tables, glasses and just everything seems to be made of...absolute ice. You will understand that a special dres code is required: the average temperature here is minus 7 degrees centigrade! Even in summer months, you better wear a coat and gloves (best even woolen underpants). About the same as for apero-skiing.

If you came to Milano by...

by NicoLepe

If you came to Milano by plane, try to land at Linate. Linate is 3Km from the town (10Km from the center), Malpensa is 40Km away.
Linate is a small airport and you'll be able to get out of it in few minutes, Malpensa is a very big one, so you'll probably have to walk a lot before being able to exit.
And the Taxi from Linate will cost you around 15/20 Euros, from Malpensa around 40/50 Euros.
