Getting to Magazzini Geerali

by mu19992008

I am going to milan for two days at the end of November. When I booked a ticket to go to a concert it was all in Italian so I'm not sure exactly what I've got. I am going to Magazzini Generrali and it says the ticket type is Posto Unico Intero. Does this mean I'm seated, or standing? Does anybody know what the venue is like?

I have also tried to find where the venue is, is it near the city centre? I haven't booked a hotel yet, but don't want to be too far as I'm only there for two nights.

Any advice would be appreciated

The address should be:
Magazzini Generali
Via Pietrasanta 14
20124 Milano

Search any map site for the position

I don't know the place, but at least "posto unico" means that there only that kind of ticket... so no wrong purchase!

the venue has capacity for 1054 persons and a total area of 940 sqm (clearly a polar animal), distributed in several floors. well you probably knew that because it's on their website, i just translated it. my mole says it's a disco (with dj's and that) when it doesnt hold concerts.
here's a search on the internet for hotels nearby

my contact says that D (alberghi hotel apollo) and H (di giacomini roberto) are the closest to the venue
he says it's not close to the city center but it's well connected. i think there're instructions on their website on how to get there from the central station, i can try to translate (add another beer)

Travel Tips for Milan

Castello Sforzesco

by croisbeauty

The architect who first conceived this overpowering brickwork complex is unknown, but it was probably begun when Galeazzo Visconti had a castle built along the Roman walls near the city gates named after upiter, therefore the castle was popularly known as the castle of the Jupiter Gate.
The complex, with several constructions on the inside, was built in the shape of a huge rectangle around a vast inner courtxard facing the city. From the very beginning, the castle was the scene of both happy and not so happy events.
Bernabo Visconti was kept prisoner here in 1385 and another great of the celebrated family, Filippo Maria, was born there in 1392.
The citadel, better fortified by Giovanni Maria, became the Visconti's permanent residance. Filippo Maria, embelished it, commissioning even the great Florentine architect Brunelleschi to do some of the work.....

The best PANZEROTTIs in Italy!

by tzuki

This place is a local PANIFICIO (Bakery) nearby Piazza di Duomo di Milano (the Cathedral of Milan) and for my recommendation to everybody this local sells the BEST PANZEROTTIs in all Italy!!

The PANZEROTTI is made by pizza base and filled with different stuff as a Calzone is, however, intead to be cooked in forn, is fried a high temperature oil, for very little time and it is delicious taste and food, if you need a tentempi? in going around the city.

When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Go Shopping!

by Krystynn about Boutiques along Via Montenapoleone & The Galleria

Yes, a thoroughbred Milanese will be elegantly dressed for their shopping expeditions. Everyone here looks as if they’re on their way to a Dolce & Gabbana fashion show or art gallery opening! The Italian women are so very sexy and dress so fashionably! WOW!

What is it about Italy and the Italian women? Now you know why I've started to starve myself huh (well actually, I've gone vegetarian now. To stay super slim). Have you seen the Milanese women's small waist line? It's unreal!

Don't worry... you (the tourist) need not have to don the latest outfits from Prada or Roberto Cavalli before stepping out. The best way to look hip is to dress in smart casuals i.e. a nice pair of jeans with t-shirt and perhaps, black jacket to match your lovely boots (in winter) or colorful sandals (in summer). NEVER wear track shoes/ tennis shoes in the city! There is a reason why they are called track shoes or tennis shoes. And the Milanese use them for sports. Period. ;-)

For the serious shoppers and fashionista, please bring along your passport (for duty free shopping) before heading straight to the exclusive Golden Triangle of fashion of Via Montenapoleone and between Corso Venezia, Via Sant' Andrea, Via della Spiga... also not forgetting Via Gesu and Via Manzoni. Yeah, baby - you are now in absolute designer heaven!

Once here, you can wander from Dolce & Gabbana to Ferragamo. Boyfriends, husbands and lovers are known to suffer from heart attacks when their female partners head off for a day of rest and relax at Via Montenapoleone. ;-))

For those who wish to dethrone Imelda Marcos and give her a run for her money, you must make a trip down to TANINO CRISCI boutique - specializing in shoes - to have a peak at their sumptuous tailor-made creations (and I really am not kidding here).

Custom-made shoes. Very nice!

One way ticket is 1 Euro (you can use it for 90 minutes) and the ticket for the whole day is 3 Euro. Metro is closed after 12,30 am so you need to take a cab (cab number is 028989 or 024040) . For the lines you can check

At the beginning of 2008 the city of Milan astounded the world, or at least those people in the world who pay attention to this sort of thing, by instituting a congestion charge for motor vehicles.

Not that there's anything so unusual about a congestion charge. London has one, Stockholm has one, but nobody expected an auto-fixated city like Milan to adopt the idea. Conclusion: if even Milan admits to having a problem with too many cars and too much pollution, then there really is a problem. (So it's not just our imagination, OK?)

Most vehicles entering the 8-square-kilometer "eco-pass" area in the city center now have to pay between three and ten Euros, depending on where they come from and how filthy they are. This is enforced by cameras at 43 "electric gates" like the one in the photos.

Electric and hybrid cars are allowed to enter the congestion charge zone without payment, and residents get a discount.

According to the City Council, the new EcoPass system aims to reduce emissions in the city center by 30% and reduce the number of incoming cars by 10%, which they hope will also speed up public transport in the area. And they have promised to reinvest all EcoPass charges in "sustainable traffic and a sustainable environment", which means not only public transport but even bicycle lanes, so as to "build a more eco-friendly city for us and our children”.
