Travel inspiration in Genoa and Milan
Genoa is a seafaring city. Today a gritty working port, Christopher Columbus’ hometown was one of the richest in the Renaissance world. Catch glimpses of its former glory in the façades of the mazy Old Town’s palaces, and stir authentic pesto into your fresh Ligurian pasta.
Milan, the second largest city in Italy
Milan is a main Italian city and regarded as the fashion capital of Europe. Milan is also an transport hub for Italy. The city has an important stake in the finance, commerce, media and sport of Italy. Two of its football teams, Inter Milan and Milan AC, are known throughout the world. Milan is located in the north west of Italy and is home to a number of museums, designers factory shops, churches and other landmarks. Those who love street style would love the Navigli area. In Piazza XXIV Maggio, shoppers will find brands such Custo-Barcellona, Diesel, Miss Sixteen, Gas and Fornarina, alongside second-hand clothes shops, handmade clothes and accessory stores made from silk and other precious materials.
The main railway stations of Milan are Milan Centrale and Milan Porta Garibaldi. The two stations are about 1.5 kilometres away from each other.
Reviews & ratings Genoa - Milan
It took a bit over 2 hours and was an enjoyable trip. I was able to sit back and write a few postcards.
The Frecciarossa trains are wonderful - fast, efficient and clean with better than average train toilets. Booking ahead for a good deal is a must as some people had paid more than twice what I had for the same journey.
The train experience was very good except for having to pay a small surcharge for not validating our tickets before boarding. However, the Italian rail system proved its unreliability once again. There were three possible trains we could take to Genoa that day to meet our prepaid connection to Milan. We decided to take the conservative option to take the earliest of the three. Upon arrival we found the first two trains were not scheduled despite the station timetables saying they were. The latest possible train was on time though so all was OK. Lesson is to check timetables very carefully the day before departure.
