    On this visit to Milan, Gayle and I were only passing through (twice). The first time was to catch a connection to Varenna and the other was coming back to travel on to Monterosso al Mare (Cinque Terre).

    Stazione Milano Centrale is a tourist sight by itself. It's hugely monumental, sternly decorated, and matches its 19030s fascist-built roots And the art makes you feel that living a powerful central state is actually a good thing.

    Gayle and I particularly appreciated that we could change tracks on the same level and that thanks to the big electronic schedule sign, it was easy to know where we had to go. We also had some free time, which allowed us to wander around and watch the crowds (while closely guarding our stuff). Milan's fashion emphasis was in play with some of the clothing choices, bit electronic advertising billboards, and some really skinny young men and women who looked like they were models.

    One of the most beautiful train stations. Check out the sky lounge if you need to wait for your train. The heat lamps will keep you warm and a fantastic view.

    This over the top edifice of marble and glass is my favorite example of fascist architecture that was in vogue under Mussolini. However since you can hope a train from here to nearly anywhere in Europe, perhaps it should be overstated.

    In rushing to catch a train or departing for your hotel, take a moment to enjoy the train station. The soaring ceilings of glass and the grand arched entries are getting to be a rarer sight. The Milan station is very well preserved.

    This large, somewhat austere looking major train station contains shops and eateries and is conveniently located a short walk from the Milan Hilton. Airport buses arrive and depart from here.

    It used to be a dangerous and not so cool place, but they did a big reconstruction in the station and know you can see how beautiful it used to be. Besides that it became a cool train station, with many shops and things to do while you wait for your train!

    This review is more for backpackers and low-budget travelers. Milano Centrale is not a bad place to spend the night if you're in between trains like I was. On one of my trips to Milan, I got into town from San Remo/Genova very late at night and had a 07:00 train to Como the next morning, it didn't really make sense to find a hostel in the city for a couple of hours' sleep so I decided to rough it at MC. Surprisingly clean train station and very safe, the police made frequent rounds on all station levels (roughly every 90 minutes, I was bored, I timed them). Useful tip: all the restrooms are closed between 01:00 and 06:00 so plan your erm business accordingly; you can get in and out of the station at all hours, with minimal hassle. Like all decent-size stations in Italy, their posted arrival and departure schedules are bang on and the self-service ticket machines are dummy-proof.

    For those flying in, there's a direct train from Malpensa to Milano Centrale.
