Milan

by SoulFisher

Hi
I'll fly to Milan this monday. Then I'll travel to the Balkans making stopovers in Slovenia, Croacia, Serbia and Bulgaria.
Could you please let me know the following:
1 - I'll arrive to Milan at around midnight. Are there trains, metro or buses from Malpensa to the city center?
2 - Do you know about CHEAP hostels for shoestring travellers in the city center? Or would it be easy to brouse in the center of the city?
3 - Where is Milan's international bus station? Are there bus rides to Slovenia every day?
Thanx in advance.

For bus information, please see http://www.sea-aeroportimilano.it/en/malpensa/index.phtml?mod=milano_arbus&to=come_arrivare
Look at MALPENSA SHUTTLE AIR PULLMAN which shows a very few buses after midnight.

For train information, look at http://www.sea-aeroportimilano.it/en/malpensa/index.phtml?mod=milano_artreno&to=come_arrivare
But I am thinking that the last Malpensa Express leaves the airport at 23:23 and Trenitalia doesn't even stop at the airport at all (you have to take a taxi to Gallarate, but there probably won't be any trains that late).

I can't tell you about hostels in Milan, never having stayed at one.

I have no idea if there are buses to Slovenia at all. Most people would take the train - see www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html . Play around with the trip calculator, since different trains cost different amounts (by more than 100%). You may find taking several local trains may be much cheaper (and much slower) than a premium direct train. Ask me more about this if you have trouble seeing what I mean.

There is a bus service called eurolines that may go where you want, but it is more intended for people spending the summer roaming around Europe hopping on and off, rather than a single trip...

Thanks. I know Eurolines, of course, and that's what I mean. I want to hop on and off through Balkanic countries - Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, until I reach Bulgaria. I am sure there is a bus service but I might take the train.

Travel Tips for Milan

Piazza della Scala

by draguza

Crossing the Vittorio Emanuele Arcade from south to north, you come out in the famous Piazza della Scala. On the far side of the square you can see La Scala Theater and opposite us is Palazzo Marino, today Milan's City Hall. The monument in the center of the square portays Leonardo Da Vinci sourrounded by his pupils. Galeazzo Alessi was commissioned by the 16th century Genovese merchant Tommaso Marino to design the palace. One of its more striking features is the vast inner courtyard with an unusual decorative scheme of human and animal head sculptures surrounded by carved garlands and geometric patterns.

Civico Tempio di San Sebastiano

by Mikebond

TheCivic Temple of San Sebastiano was built at the end of the 16th century. The citizens wanted to build a votive temple to stop the plague, as requested by Cardinal Carlo Borromeo in 1576. The project by Pellegrino Tibaldi was realized by architect Fabio Mangone, but the church remained inachieved. The presbytery was added at a later date.

Ferrari - a piece of Maranello in Milan

by sierralyndon about Ferrari Store

I popped down to the new Ferrari Store in Piazza dei Liberty the day after its grand opening on 1 Sept 2005. They were still unloading tonnes of stuff into the store, but I must say the whole place is most impressive!

Talk about merchandising! You can get everything from Ferrari soaps, to Puma shoes with the Ferrari emblem, a kids' Ferrari rocking-horse and not to mention clothes, clothes, clothes.

There are bits of engines (that I couldn't identify of course), a F1 simulator (seated in a real car) on the basement floor for kids (and also grown-ups, I suspect) and what might be a real F1 car in the shop window. Ferrari memoribilia. Everything's overpriced for what it really is of course, but you're paying for the brand aren't you?

The most complicated transit system in the world

by MJB123

I have been on the subways of many many cities around the world and would have to say that Milan's metro system is the most complex. Signs posted on the walls of the subway are not as user friendly as in Rome, Athenes, London, Paris, Madrid, New York, Wien, Munich, etc, etc. but if you are going to be spending a day or two here chances are you will only need to get to the Duomo stop.
Still, I recommend getting a one day pass so you don't have to worry about taking the wrong line. They are about 4 euros

Another way to get around...

by mauro_pd

Another way to get around Milan is the so-called 'sight-seeing tram': it is an old tram cab converted for touristic use. It runs around the city and cost 15 euros ... I think it could be worthy of cause you can also have some explanation by headphones.
