    La Spezia

    by

    Comfortable hotel a short metro ride from the centre, attracted here by the proximity to the Auditorium theatre.
    Room a good size and comfortable with a good buffet breakfast included. Price a little expensive I think, 5 euro pppn tourist tax does not help.

    4-star hotel but more like a 3-star

    by

    The hotel doesn't look very much a 4-star hotel from the outside, but the reception area does. The room was clean and had a modern look, but the bathroom was a bit of let-down, especially the shower stall. It was small and somewhat old. No tea and coffee facilities to our disappointment, but there was a mini-fridge and 2 pairs of complimentary slippers.
    The window wasn't double-glazed, so we could hear the traffic noise at all times and it was a bit hard to sleep. I'm glad I brought a pair of ear plugs.
    The breakfast was included in our rate and it was served on the fifth floor where you have a good view. It was a continental buffet breakfast. No scrambled eggs or bacon, only hard-boiled eggs. The fruit salad was fresh and good. My only complain was that there were more choices for sweet things than salty ones. I got a croissant thinking it was only butter, but it was actually filled with jam (I found the food tag hidden later on)...
    We didn't need to park our car in their parking lot because we found a place on the street. There's nothing much in the area, so this place is maybe only good if you have car. There is a bus stop outside the hotel though.
    Keep in my mind that the city tax is 4€ per person/per night

    Unique Quality: Clean rooms, easy to park in the area. Outside the traffic tax area.

    Directions: Near highway exit.

Directions from Central Train Station to Shopping

by utkmbagal

I have 4 hours to shop in Milan (between trains). What is the fastest way to get from the Milan Central station to shopping? AND Where is the best place to go for women clothing and shoes in Milan?

Thanks for any help!
Melissa

Re: Directions from Central Train Station to Shopping

by milliturtle

When I was there in June this year, I shopped in the Corso Buenos Aires area and the Duomo area. The Duomo is about 2 metro stops from the Central Station and you can find the high end stuff (like Prada and Louis Vuitton) and also the chains (H&M and equivalent). Corso Buenos Aires is more mid-range and I think is technically walking distance to Stazione Centrale (Metro stops Lima and Loreto - also a couple of stops on the metro).

If you have time to do designer outlet shopping, you can try Il Salvagente. I think you take Bus 60 from the station, but I can't remember the name of the stop. We didn't go there because we didn't have time and the bus ride is probably at least 30 minutes. We ended up going to the 10 Corso Como outlet. (See link) If you dig deep, you might actually be able to pick up some end of the line designer shoes for a really good price (I got some Miu Miu sandals for 50 euros). Most of goods are about 50% off list price though, so still quite pricey. The metro stop is Stazione Garibaldi (also 2 stops from Central) and it's about a 10 minute walk from the station. Don't let the entrance fool you though - it really look that nondescript.

Travel Tips for Milan

Churches

by antistar

One of the best things about Milan is its churches. It has so many of them, and they are mostly all wonderful to look at. I found it quite common to be just walking down a street and seeing some pretty little church tucked down a backstreet, like the one here on Via Fabio Flizi near the Central Station, that aren't even mentioned in the guide books.

Aperitivo - lots of food for cheap

by sierralyndon

It is a very Milanese thing to go for aperitivo in the evenings before dinner. All bars between the hours of 18.00 and 20.00 have a selection of tidbits on the counter, where you go and order a drink and then snack away.

This gets taken a step further by some of the trendier locales, where massive buffets are served. It's practically dinner. Pay for your drink (usually between €5 - €10) and eat all you want. Places are usually open from 18.00 till late...

Some of my favourite places:

Bhangra Bar - Corso Sempione / Arco della Pace (good indian snacks)

Noy - via Soresina/off Corso Vercelli area - very relaxing and cool place (if you get the cushion seatings, it's like you're at home).

Palo Alto - Corso di Porta Romana (hot pasta)

Yguana - Piazza della Vetra

Bar Victoria - near Piazza Cordusio (not fantastic, but convenient as it's right in town)

Diana Sheraton - Porta Venezia (to watch beautiful and elegant people)

Executive Lounge - Garibaldi area (very cool place with lots of cushions and candles... food selection not fantastic though)

... and any number of places around the Navigli area.

Artigianato in FIERA

by draguza

“L’artigiano in Fiera” is the most important international event dedicated to craft manufacturing, and it aims to celebrate and revives a traditional way of working: centered on the worker, on a personal and creative production, on the attention for the details of the final object.

This means beauty and quality of all the products exhibited, even if they are of many different kinds: clothing and accessories, furniture and furnishing accessories, and even typical wine and food products will be on show!

The exhibition is divided into 3 main areas, on the basis of a geographic pattern: Italy, Europe, Countries of the World; 106 countries will in fact be present, each one with its peculiar craft traditions and abilities, which will create a sort of “melting pot” of the craftsmanship.

In addition, two more sections are scheduled: Ecoabitare, dedicated to eco-friendly home architecture show, and Econavigare, to promote the craftsmanship in nautical sector.

More than 3 millions people visited the past edition of “L’artigiano in Fiera”. With more than 3.000 craftsmen on site, 8 pavilions in an area of 100.000 square meters of the exhibition center, and low prices of the products on sale… you’ll surely find the perfect objects for you!

Knew it could happen

by Joemidwest

Our friend Jay, who traveled with us this trip, worked for the now defucnt airline TWA. This was the third year he had given us the employee triple e passes for Christmas. But... this is first time we got stuck. The planes were full for at least three days they said. Time for plan B ( thanks to Janis ).
