Stazione centrale

Although I agree that the Stazione centrale is not a nice area to walk the night, You can't say there are just a few budget hotels... and the Gallia? the Michelangelo? same for eating : Il Gambero Rosso? Ub 02:22, 30 May 2006 (EDT)


Just a few budget hotels, thats far from the truth really. I find that most of the cheaper end of the hotels, are all the same no matter what the price. Even some of the "nice" looking hotels like Amadaus (for standard rooms etc). What is it with Italy and having really small crappy rooms/beds, but really big and nice bathrooms? :D And the poor lighting is another common one, oh and being harassed constantly by the hotel staff and cleaners etc. meh I could go on...

taxi

I have removed and changed the following lines

Taxis are pretty expensive and drivers are theoretically not allowed to catch walking customers, they should only pick up from taxi stands or by phone booking. Anyway they'll pick you up even if they can't.

Since the city regulation do allow taxi to pick up walking customer. (see article 26 of this pdf version of the regulation) AnyFile 08:44, 15 October 2006 (EDT)

FOr more information about the special telephon number 848.814.781. to call a taxi stand see this document from the municipality

Picture of Pirelli building

Why is this picture at the top of the article? That is such an ugly and modern building and considering Milan's status and history there are millions of better images which can be used. That kind of building is like something out of the USA and not a symbol of one of Europe's greatest cities. 213.230.129.22 08:49, 25 April 2007 (EDT)


Pirelli Building is anything but ugly. The picture could be better and of course, there are mllions of better images which can be used. But all the photos are very bad: I think that they have been choosed by someone who don't want to show the beauty of Milan.

Perhaps one of you might plunge forward and upload some better pictures of the city?  ;) --Peter Talk 22:37, 1 April 2010 (EDT)

Malpensa Shuttle

Is it just me or is this bus taking longer and longer to do it's trip? The article said 30minutes when quite etc, on weekends but recently, even in the dead of night, it usually takes 40 minimum, and easily an hour even without much traffic. There is only a little hold up in teh city outskirts anyway since the autostradle's are clear enough for a "slow" bus, and then the dedicated bus lanes etc... but still, its slower... No matter what I say to the conductor for this service, they always try and give me a single ticket instead of the return ticket I ask for; English, Italian, hand signs... nothing works first time.

People need to be careful now, since there is another malpensa service running and sits in the "malpensa express" queue by the station and the conductors try and pull in as many as possible. The bus looks a little crappy.

Hotels

I have been editing the hotel listings for errors and consistency. I have left the parts in the address that appear to be zip codes. I am not sure the relation to the address and how important they are for travelers... As is customary on wikitravel I have removed the city and country names from the addresses. I would like to also remove these "zip codes" but I want to make sure somebody with local knowledge agrees that they are not necessary. Carson 18:29, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

Districtifying

Shouldn't Milan have some districts? Some sections, such as See and Sleep, have too much listings.--2.80.101.61 06:22, 6 September 2010 (EDT)

I agree, this this page is already over 100kb. –sumone10154 22:46, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Against. I just think that there are too many options in Sleep/Splurge, not that they would merit districtification. Everything looks like they're within 10 minutes walking of each other. Shopping will be the largest section, because it's Milan, the fashion capital of the world.--rfilmyer 16:56, 1 May 2011 (EDT)
I think, districtification would be fine given the number of listings, any suggestions on how to do it?, --ClausHansen 17:07, 1 May 2011 (EDT)

Restaurants

Seems like only very high-end restaurants are mentioned. Someone should probably go ahead and separate them into different categories according to price range. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 93.50.3.80 (talkcontribs)
