I'm not sure you'd make a special trip to see the station but if you're travelling through it's quite a sight. A very grand and impressive stone facade with amazing sculptures. Pretty regular scruffy train station inside.

The station is a fabulous piece of architecture. The whole booking procedure is fairly simple however we were concerned to find a not inconsiderable number of migrants standing around both outside and inside the station. Had to block one or two who gave the distinct impression of trying to read card numbers when a family member was booking. Just stay... More

A very efficient station, all the trains we caught were on time and were well staffed. Plenty of English speaking "helpers" dotted around the ticket machines (all ticket machines have an English option) and the whole process of getting a ticket and finding platforms is easy. Good information boards show platform and times, you just need to remember to validate... More

I could not believe there is such a train station as amazing as the Milano Centrale. The architecture is superb! The modern and the traditional interiors are well blended in this magnificent building. You can do shopping and food trips in this building. If you want to have a souvenir of Milan, this place is the best to take pictures.... More

Amazing building of the central station, it is more beautiful than some tourist atractions in other cities... ;) Personally for me it was also great to stand, look on the table of arrivals/departures and dream about going e.g. to Venice... ;)

Yes it is a train station and you have to pass through here if you are going anywhere from Milan, but take my suggestion and leave some extra time to have a look at the shops. There's a great collection and they are all close together under one roof. The station is clean well lit and easy to find your... More

Great building as a must see and managed well for easy access to trains. Security staff could be a bit nicer but for a station has all you could need and links well to the metro

The monumental Milano Centrale can serve as a good live example of fascist style in architecture. It was officially opened in 1931, during the reign of Benito Mussolini. The station is really squat and lacks any kind of elegancy – it is designed to give a regular member of the fascist society sense of pride and firmness of the totalitarian... More

This one of the most beautiful railways stations I have seen. It is a very large quite ornate building but is very functional. It is easy to find your way around and to get to the right platform to catch your train. There are good eating places within the building. In the current climate there were plenty of armed police...

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
