As the capital of northern Italy's Lombardy region, with more than a million inhabitants, Milano (or Milan) is renowned the world over as a hub of design, fashion and creativity. Well-connected to the rest of Italy, as well as other metropolises in Europe, Milan is an important centre of commerce and trade, boasting countless tourist attractions and a bustling social scene. For passengers who have bought a ticket and caught a train to Milan, the journey is made easy, thanks to the good rail services (including Intercity and high speed trains) which connect daily this must-visit destination. Trains to Milan from Turin take just 1 hour, with express services taking as little as 45 minutes, from Venice 2h25mins, and from Rome 2h55mins; while the journey time from the smaller town of Verona is 1h15mins. Milan's main station is Milano Centrale, located right at the heart of the city, but other train stations, such as Milano Cadorna, Milano Porta Garibaldi and Milano Rogoredo, are spread throughout the whole metropolitan area. Some of them — particularly Milano Centrale — are also directly connected to the Malpensa Aeroporto station, thus to the city's main airport.

Visiting Milan

Catching the train to Milan is incredibly simple. Milano Centrale station is served by a number of regional, national and international rail services, with high-speed routes provided by both Italo and Trenitalia. Special mention deserves the service provided by Thello, allowing people to travel from Milan (Milano Centrale train station) to Marseille (Marseille St Charles).

The city offers a wealth of interesting cultural attractions and monuments. Perhaps the most notable is the Duomo di Milano, an iconic piece of Italian Gothic architecture located in the main square of the city. The imposing white-marble facade and beautiful stature of the Madonna here make for a fantastic photo opportunity, while the rooftop terrace provides breath-taking views across the city. A leisurely 2-minute stroll from here provides plenty of mesmerising sights, with countless boutiques and bistros on offer along the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Once visitors have finished walking along the length of this historic stretch of Milan, they will arrive at Teatro alla Scala, one of the most celebrated theatres in the world that regularly plays host to some of the biggest names in music and dance. Castello Sforzesco, housing numerous institutions including the Museo d’Arte Antica and the Museo Egizio, is next on the to-see list, and visitors need only stroll for 15 minutes through the majestic streets of Milan to find it. The Pinacoteca di Brera can also be found in this area — a main public art gallery that hosts one of the foremost exhibitions of Italian artwork anywhere in the world. Here, tourists will find famous works from the likes of Titian, Caravaggio, Bellini and many more. After admiring these artworks, travellers can cap off their day with a stroll about the Palazzo Brera, a palatial monument that stands as another jewel in the crown of this magnificent city.

And, should there be still some time — and energy — left, the towns of Pavia, Bergamo and Como are ideal day trips, being all located at less than one hour from Milan. Train tickets to these enchanting destinations start from less than 10 .
