Wonderful apartment in a wonderful location in Milano.
This was a great experience for us. We stayed in Milano for a month. The apartment was extremely comfortable and clean on arrival. Set up nicely and appointed for a couple or family, we were able to cook and enjoy comfort to relax around the apartment. Also, a washer dryer were great for packing light. The apartment is very bright and airy and has a great view of what is going on in the city. There is even a small balcony door set in the guest room that you enjoy some people watching and you can use to sense the weather before heading out for the day. The Duomo and the historic town is almost within sight, a few blocks into the Duomo piazza. You can see the gold blessed statue on top of the duomo top spire from the living room window. There were a number of trams and trolley lines right out the front door and others very close by, the metro a block away. We were 4 stops from the Milano Centrale train station on the metro and were able to quickly get going on day trips to Venice, Como, Bellagio and Varenna and of course, Monza. Most of the Milano historic places and sights were accessible by walking. There are grocery stores, drug stores and gourmet everything nearby. A bakery virtually in the building ground floor, with outstanding pastries and even the needed morning bagel or breakfast and coffees. Even a fruit and vegetable stand on the back street. There are no shortage of food or options in the area. The building was secure with a keyed door into the lobby, and Consierge during regular day time hours. And an elevator as well as a lovely attractive open staircase up and down from the unit. Appliances and furnishing were of a high caliper and finishes were very clean and modern. We were very much at home lounging, sleeping and eating meals. Overall, it was like being in your own home for a time. This makes it so much easier to enjoy and extended vacation in an incredible town. The owner, Ilona, was extremely responsive from the very beginning of the rental inquiry thru to needs and questions when we arrived. We would definitely stay at the Via Larga street apartment again and would highly recommend it to those visiting Milano. More so if this is your first visit and you want the comfort and convenience of a “home” to use instead of a hotel room. You can enjoy the Milanese experience almost like a “ local “. Overall and amazing city, and amazing apartment and owner, and you will enjoy and love Milano.
