Milan Travel Tips

Italian style is something that is known the world over. Their flair for design and style is emulated in many different countries around the world. Each year in season Milan attracts people from various industries that attend trade fairs and shows. Models, fashion designers, photographers and even just people with an interest in fashion and design frequently visit Milan. It is a major commercial city and attracts many business travelers throughout the year. In terms of tourism, the peak travel season coincides with the summer months. June and July can get quite crowded at the main city sights. Other good times of the year to travel are May, August and September.

Benefits of Staying in Milan Apartments

Milan is a bustling European city and a place of diverse interests and attractions. The best way to explore and experience the city is to linger a while, by moving away from the main tourist areas and simply observing the local way of life. One of the best ways to do this is to rent a vacation apartment in the city. Not only is it one of the more affordable accommodation options, it also provides a distinctly local perspective of the city. The apartments are typically stylishly furnished. Most often they are suitable for just two to four adults or smaller families. The living areas range from compact and cozy to spacious penthouse-style apartments. Kitchens are generally well equipped with the latest in modern appliances and conveniences. Many apartments are conveniently located near bus stops or public transportation systems so getting around the city is easy.

Milan Travel Attractions

Milan is home to the famous La Scala Opera Theatre. Attending an opera performance here is the highlight of any trip to Milan. Milan has many beautiful old buildings and cultural centers. The Duomo is believed to be the second largest cathedral in the world and houses one of the largest collections of marble statues. There are several other Basilicas in the city that are well worth visiting. The famous Leonardo da Vinci painting of the Last Supper can be seen in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. There are many art galleries that showcase both traditional and contemporary modern art.

Getting to Italy Vacation Rentals in Milan

Milan is served by three airports. The primary airport is Malpensa which hosts mainly international airlines on long-haul flights. The Malpensa International Airport is linked to the city of Milan by the Malpensa Express train as well as the Malpensa shuttle bus service. The secondary airport in Milan is used mostly for domestic and regional flights. A little further afield, approximately 45 kilometers from Milan, is a newer airport called Orio al Serio International Airport. This is one of Italy’s primary airports servicing low-cost European airlines. The airport is connected to Milan by a daily bus schedule that operates with more than 30 departures a day.

Milan is at the center of the rail network in northern Italy. It has good connections with other major cities such as Rome and Florence as well as other European destinations. There are high-speed intercity trains with daily connections to Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Spain and France. There is an extensive highway and road system in Milan but traffic, like in most major European cities, can be quite chaotic at times. If you need to use road transportation, it is recommended to make use of the buses or arrange a taxi for private point-to-point transfers.
