Milan Central Station

It is much more than a station. It is a place to experience shopping, the flavors of the world and use the many services available

Where
Milan

Inaugurated in 1931, Milan's Central Station is one of Europe's main railway stations, the second biggest and busiest in Italy.

It is served by some 600 trains every day, plus two underground lines, the nearby suburban train link (passante ferrorviario) and is also a terminus for several local buses and trams.Milan Central Station is the most important rail hub for both national and international arrivals and buses to and from Linate, Malpensa and Orio al Serio airports all stop here.

Overlooking Piazza Duca d'Aosta, right in the city centre, Milan Central has an open portico with arches, decorated with statues and ornaments that leads to the Galleria, almost 28 metres high and then to the Ticket Hall.

The station has no definite architectural style, as it is a mixture of different eras and especially Liberty and Art Deco, combined with the monumental pomp of the Fascist era architecture.Two huge flights of steps go from the ticket hall directly up to the Galleria delle Carrozze where the train platforms are.Inside the station there is a wide selection of facilities and eating places, but above all shops of all kinds, from clothing and accessories to hi-tech, wellbeing and health and bookshops.

It is the perfect place to spend time between one journey and another, and is also a real point of reference for shopping and the requirements of Milan residents or those merely passing through on their commute via the Central Station.An interesting fact: close to Milan Central, you can see the famous Pirelli skyscraper, also known as Pirellone, the tallest building in Europe.
