No! I have cousins who live in Binasco. It's flat, not very scenic, and not near anything you would really want to see.

Binasco is a suburb of Milano. Don't know how safe it is but of course it is not a nice place to stay for vacation. There is nothing interesting to do7see there and it takes a lot to reach Milano.

Maybe you can cancel your reservation and choose another hotel...

Hi cpd,

I've actually never been to Binasco (even though I've heard of it), but I suppose it's just on ordinary residential town like many others; I suppose you shouldn't expect nightlife or lots of restaurants and clubs there.

I've typed 'comtur' in the search box above and I've found your hotel; there is one review in English, which describes quite in detail the means of transport you should use (that is: bus from Bergamo airport to Milan; underground to Famagosta stop; bus from Famagosta to Binasco); this is useful also for transport to central Milan every day from your hotel.

Check that review, you'll find it useful.

The only notable thing about Binasco that springs to mind is Kartell, the famous design furniture manufacturer, whose HQs (and I think also a factory outlet) are located in Biasco. Other than that, as previous poster siad, it's flat and pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

There are frequent buses to Milan's Famagosta metro stop (travel time 30 minutes).
