by likkian

1.Will be arriving in milan/malapensa airport on mid june, have 3 big luggage , is it inconvenient to trave by bus with 3 big luggages to hotel berna ? there are total 2 adults and 1 boy 10 yrs old.

2.Staying in milan for 3 days , 1 day tour in milan, 1 day trip to venice 1 day trip to switerland OR lake como, can i have your suggestions ?

3.Do i need to buy my train ticket in advance from milan to rome ? Will it be more enjoyable to visit venice by myself or join a tour group considering I only have 1 day ?

Any suggestions welcome Thankyou.

#2 I would do Como, only takes around an hour or less to get there and leaves you the day to explore - I would particularly recommend the train that goes towards Tirano - just get off in Varenna, one of the nicest towns around Lake Como. To head back to Milan ... work your way down to Como in one of the slow boats and take the Como train to Milan (forget the station but you won't arrive in centrale, but can connect w/the rest of the metro). The "to" trip is nice and scenic - the return trip not scenic but quick.

If you go to Venice, you don't need a tour group. Advise is to hop on vaporetto #1 and go around the canal. Also have an idea of what you want to see before you arrive from this site or you could purchase a guide. A good guide is Knop's Guide to Venice - if you're in the US you can get it from Barnes and Noble.

como is beautiful, well worth visiting. there are two trains stations in como, each of which runs to milan. we took the main line train to garibaldi station, i believe, two subway stops to central, easy. about an hour trip. from como, ferries and hydrofoils run north. the idea of going to varenna and working south is a good one.

Travel Tips for Milan

Visual Feast

by tpal

As I have said, Milan is a world class center for design but this is not a recent development. As you walk around the streets of Milan be sure to look up, down and around the corners. This building was located on Via V. Hugo next to the Peck. It seems to be an apartment or office building but what stuck me was the magnificent art nouveau iron work railings.

Packing List

by Star_Dust

Bring luggage that has wheels! And if you can, try not to bring too much. In other words, if you want to SAVE money, by NOT taking a taxi from/to Malpensa airport (like i HAD to), bring bags that you are able to carry alone. Money will be saved by leaving form Cadorna train station, and taking the Malpensa express for 45 minutes right to the airport! Trust me....i could have purchased two new pairs of shoes with the money i spent on taxis!*****Make sure that you don't forget to bring a good-sized backpack (for those NON-backpackers) for weekend getaways from the city. SHOES....hmm...I don't understand how women in heels do not sprain their ankles every single day!??!?! The sidewalks are NOT pedestrian friendly! In that case, wear comfortable, and FLAT shoes. otherwise, take great caution in heels!
*****
UMBRELLA!!! Start out brining a cheap one. Then, depending on how long you are staying, you will need to buy another cheap umbrella after the first one breaks! Don't worry, as soon as it rains, there are umbrella vendors on every street corner! Italy is not a third world country, so don't feel lik eyou have to bring everythign from home. They have shampoos....although conditioners seem harder to find. As for medication, bring your tylenol/asprin/advil from home, it's just easier this way. Pharmacies in Italy are very different than in Canada; everything is pretty much behind the counter, which to me was very annoying. Brings LOTS of film. Film tends to be more expensive here than in North America. Bring TOWELS!!!! The Italians seem to use bed cloth-type pieces of fabric as their towels. If you like those big fuzzy towels, bring your own!

Shopping for High Fashion Goods

by Krystynn about Versace, Prada, Gucci, Trussadi, D&G..

My favorite places:

PRADA MIU MIU
Via Sant'Andrea 21 Corso Venezia 3.
Would you believe there are no fewer than 5 Prada stores in this little area? Amazing.

Every legitimate high priestess and priest of style will come to Milan, the High Temple of Fashion (at least once in their entire lifetime) to pay homage and worship at the revered feet of style gurus like Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Trussadi. Luxury goods... Don't ask.... Enough to give your man a headache. ;-)

Palo Alto

by Star_Dust

Palo Alto
it has apperitivo, and it's the place ofr us exchange studnets to go every friday night!!
It has good food, great frozen drinks, and nice music! You can wear whatever you want...but it's a small place, so you'll get hot fast!

by train all over the Europe

by d_d

From Central station, you can catch train for every euroopean country.
Well organized.
Inside the station you can find also many shops.
If you are at the station, remember to turn on your head to watch the wonderful vaults!
