Milan Aug 16-18

by asamie333

Hi people,

So, I was one of the unfortunate souls who booked train to Milan for the weekend of Aug 15 just to find out later that it will be a ghost town during that particular time period :(:(

The primary reason for the visit was to shop...I still find it hard to believe that Milan-the fashion center of europe etc. will be all closed down...so, my question to the locals and those who been there during mid-August, is that really true?

(please tell me otherwise :(

Hello Sam,

I am very sorry for you, but you should know that in August all Italy is on vacations.. so in the big cities you mostly find tourists and locals try to go with families somewhere to the islands, to the sea.. Milan and Rome are ideal for shopping, however August is not the right month I guess. However, you could still go to the outlets just out of Milan that they sell fashionable clothes, have you checked if they were opened? I remember, when living in Rome, I used to shop in some of outlets in industrial part of Rome where they are situated.

Hey Kissia,

Thanks so much for the quick reply.

yes, I admit, it was a bit of ignorant on my part to not research the dates before booking the trip.

I will now try to book trip 2 for the last weekend of August, hopefully the situation will be a bit better with the holiday-makers getting back to work.

Perhaps I will find the new collection in the stores then? :D

Thanks again.

Sam

Hi Sam,
I'm sorry to confirm you that the central week of August is not the best time to visit Milan, in particular if your aim is shopping!
In the last years the situation is changed and some shops (and also restaurant) will be open also in this period(ie La Rinascente) but most of them will close at least the central week - August 11-17.
If you will come to Milan at the end of August, I think that starting from August 25 everything will slowly became as usual.
The new collection is already available... in particular in the most famous and branded shops.Ciao

Travel Tips for Milan

Corso Vittorio Emanuele

by croisbeauty

Corso Vittorio Emanuele is one of the bussiest streets of Milano, a real shopping paradise. Here you can see and being seen. If you are lucky enough, here you can meet the celebrities of Milano when walking or shopping in the most expensive shops of the town.
To those who can afford it, I suggest to seat in the street cafes (coffee is 2 and up euros, ice-cream 10 and more), and watching people passing by.

University of Milano - Bicocca

by Nemorino

The University of Milano - Bicocca is located in an area called Bicocca, on the northern outskirts of Milan. The University is on what was once the industrial site of the Pirelli tire company.

This new university was founded in 1998 as a spin-off from the older University of Milan ("Statale") and the Politecnico of Milan.

It describes itself as "a young, dynamic and multidisciplinary university" -- and the university website has a Chinese version, so you can tell they aren't just messing around.

The Bicocca campus includes a European Mobility Center, which provides information and personalized assistance to people who are moving to another country for research or study activities.

Part of the Bicocca University campus is right across the street from the new theater Teatro degli Archimboldi.

Corso Vittorio Emanuele II

by Diana75 about Clothes - not high fashion

Corso Vittorio Emanuele is another downtown famous shopping area in Milan.

From Piazza del Duomo to Piazza Babila here are to be found important Italian and international brands, such as H&M, Zara or Calzedonia.

Malpensa airport to/from Milan

by SWFC_Fan

I flew to Athens via Milan's Malpensa airport in September 2005.

On both the outward journey and the return journey, I had several hours between connecting flights and, not wanting to stay in the airport for that length of time, ventured into Milan city centre for a bit of sightseeing.

On the outward journey I caught the"Malpensa Express" train from the airport to the conveniently located Stazione Cadorna, just a few minutes walk from Castello Sforzesco and a 10-15 minute walk from Duomo. The journey from the airport to Cadorna took approximately 45 minutes and cost 11 Euros each way. Tickets can be purchased from the helpful information counter in the arrivals hall and must be validated in the machines on the platform.

On the return journey I opted for the cheaper option and caught the "Malpensa Shuttle" bus to Stazione Centrale. The journey took a little over 1 hour and cost 5 Euros each way.

I didn't find Stazione Centrale to be as conveniently located as Stazione Cadorna and if I was in this position again I would undoubtedly pay the higher price for the added convenience (and shorter journey time) of the Malpensa Express.

Coming from outside Italy the...

by mauro_pd

Coming from outside Italy the best way is to fly to Malpensa (north, 40 Km, motorway), to Linate (LIN, east, 10 Km) or to Orio (east, 30 Km, motorway A4). From Malpensa (code MXP) there's a train shuttle for connection with Cadorna railway station in the city center.
Almost every 'interesting' site can be reached by one of the three lines of 'Metropolitana' (underground). Check the official site of ATM, the public transport company at www.atm-mi.it (english written pages available). Do not expect announcements for the next station: they're not present in Milan.

If you plan to use taxis you can mostly pay by credit card (check before to avoid chaos).
