Where to stay in Milan

For a quintessential Milanese experience, stay in the bustling heart of the old town. This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive. Visitors traveling on a budget can choose from a range of top-notch B&Bs and family-operated hostels, which offer private parking and access to private outdoor space, minutes from Milan's main attractions.

  • Seriously, this is art? Obviously artistic taste varies but to me it is seriously lacking in talent At least it makes a recognizable landmark!
  • Interesting statue !
  • Color full sculpture
  • Opened in 2000, this work represents the three main metro lines (red, green and yellow) that "fit" in Milan, but also fashion with the emme, the pride of the city. Finally, if you want, you can also see a similarity with the Visconti snake ... At the opening the spontaneous question was: "if it's chela stuff there?", then it became a habit and if there were they would feel the lack.

  • If you think that Milan has a long tradition of tailoring, and is also known abroad as a fashion capital, we can consider that the sculpture of Oldenburg is apt and brilliant. By a touch of color and originality to Piazzale Luigi Cadorna. The thread enters the eye of the needle and the needle sticks in the ground and a short distance away, in a pool of water, rises the knot of this thread. It is very special. The sculpture, after much skepticism has become an integral part of our beautiful Milan. Of course this is my opinion.
