Beautiful apartment in the coolest Milano street on the corner of Colonne di San Lorenzo in historical Milano, close to Duomo, Navigli, Sant'Ambrogio., Parco della Vetra. Great cafes, bars and restaurants, just downstairs. Fully equipped.

The space

I am an Italian-born professional recently returned to Milan after a period abroad; I am now renting for short terms my apartment in an Old-Milan building dating back to 19th century. It is just beside Colonne di San Lorenzo, in the very center of Milan, a 10-minute walk from Duomo.

The San Lorenzo area is one of the most lively and characteristic of the city and a destination for Milan's movida, with plenty of restaurants, cafes, wine bars and shops, located right downstairs the apartment and in the streets nearby.

The apartment has two bedrooms: one double bedroom with a queen-size bed, and a single bedroom. You will have the whole apartment for you and nobody else will be there.

First floor:
- Living room with dining table and a fireplace, a TV corner and a desk/library corner. Loads of natural light all day long
- Kitchen with dining table, oven, microwave, etc
- Main bedroom with queen size bed, accommodatin(URL HIDDEN)Bathroom with bath/shower

Second floor:
- Single bedroom
- Bathroom with shower

- Free broadband WiFi Internet access available throughout the apartment
- Hi-Fi appliances available for guests
- Dishwasher and Washing machine

The apartment is right beside the stunning San Lorenzo church, and basically at walking distance from anything worth seeing in the center of Milan: Piazza Duomo, Palazzo Reale, Via Montenapoleone fashion district, Castello Sforzesco. It is ten minutes walking from S. Maria delle Grazie with Leonardo's "Last Supper" and ten minutes walking from the Tortona area, where many fair events take place.

The nearest metro stations (S. Ambrogio on the green line and Missori on the yellow line) are about five minutes walking.
Plenty of ground transportation available in the surroundings.

Two taxi booths are also available nearby the apartment.


- From MALPENSA AIRPORT: take the Malpensa Express train to Cadorna station (29/36 min ride). From Cadorna station you can either walk (16 minutes) or take a taxi (4-5 minutes) to my place.

- From LINATE AIRPORT: as the airport is pretty close to the city center, the best is to take a taxi: it is a 15-20 minutes ride (around 18 EUR).

- From CENTRALE TRAIN STATION: by underground (metropolitana) take the green line to Assago and get off at S. Ambrogio station (6th stop), then walk to my place (5 minutes). Alternatively take a taxi from Centrale station: 15 minutes, 10 EUR.

Milan is a pretty difficult place to park so I suggest to park in a private parking. The closest one to my place is in Via Olmetto 9. Parking should cost around 20-25 EUR/day. You may consider the street parking option, however this is usually pretty complicated in Milano. It is possible to park on white parking spots (free and rare) or blue parking spots (paying per hour normally with a maximum stay of 2 hours). Yellow parking spots are for residents only so if you park there you risk getting a ticket.

IMPORTANT - Please note that when entering Milano city center during weekdays a 5 EUR congestion charge (AREA C) must be paid, which you can do through the people at the above mentioned parking lot or via on the Internet (I will be happy to help you on this).

My son and I had a week at Davide's apartment and it was amazing. Davide was a great host, was very accommodating and helpful and even checked everything was ok via text message. The apartment is just stunning. It's clean, well-stocked kitchen, wifi and air-con worked flawlessly. The apartment has to be one of the BEST locations in Milan. 10 Minute walk from the Duomo Cathedral ... fantastic shops right on the doors step, awesome places to eat and drink right where you need them and the supermarket is also just round the corner. I'm so glad I found this apartment as it was perfect for us. We could walk around all the main city centre with ease. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again and again.

Overall enjoyed staying at Davide's. Good area, close to everything. Apartment is very spacious, probably too spacious for the heating system so was never warm enough( We didn't meet Davide, but he was always available on mobile and very responsive. We would enjoy even better if some basic things like small bottle of water (we came late when shops were closed) and oil for cooking were provided.

Davide was a great host. He provided me with all the information I needed to get to the apartment easily. We made plans to meet up for me to collect the keys. Because he was busy at work, he sent me an email detailing how to reach the apartment. He also prepared an electronic booklet with information on the apartment, the house rules, nearby restaurants and grocery stores; this was extremely useful. Davide was always reachable via phone and email. The apartment itself is beyond charming. It is located in a small street and faces another residential building across the street, but the large windows allow for a lot of light. The kitchen is spacious and functional. The bedroom is great and easily accommodates two people. The neighborhood is fantastic for tourists visiting Milan. It is close to various tourist sights. For instance, the basilica of San Lorenzo is a 2 min walk from the apartment. The Duomo is a 10 minute walk away, at most . I was a 5 minute walk from Navigli. This gives you access to a lot of great places to eat at night or to go experience the aperitivo tradition. The place is close to the metro as well. I can't recommend this place enough. If you are going to Milan, check out Davide's apartment.

We were met by the host's father who was extremely helpful and welcoming. Any requests we had were immediately satisfied. The apartment has all the charm of a 16th century building, but it is still functional and cosy. We felt very much at home there. The location is excellent, walking distance from many points of interest and shops. Both Davide and his wife were responsive and helpful. It was our first experience of AirBnB and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Davide's flat is extremely well located. Shops, center, duomo are all within 5 to 10 mn walk... The flat itself is quite functional for a couple. separate bedroom, nice living room Davide certainly makes things easy: excellent communication, tips, extra details such as local map, cards for the city bikes, perfect internet access with wifi... Kitchen was full of nice details (letting us to enjoy breakfast without having to go buy food on our arrival...) Much appreciated!

I am a (relatively) young Italian man, recently returned to Italy after a few years abroad, in New York and London. I am now an entrepreneur in the renewable energy finance business, living and working in Milan.

I will be very happy to introduce you to the beauties of this sparkling city: there's many of them - very carefully hidden, but many.
