Combining Old World character and contemporary style, this Milan vacation rental is ideal for your Italian holiday. Updated in 2009 and centrally located on the channel in a quaint pedestrian-only district, this home is perfect for the adventurous friends or a sight-seeing family.
The lively Navigli neighborhood features bustling restaurants, pubs, and live music venues. It's about a mile away from must-see Milan attractions like Duomo di Milano and the Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio. Alongside the building is the Traghetti Gaggiano channel on which you can take a guided boat tour. It's the ideal area for urban adventurers who want to experience the tourist sites and the locals' favorites.
Since the entrance to this Milan rental is on a pedestrian street and not accessed via car, you'll have a little less noise from traffic. A classic courtyard lets you have morning espresso in the fresh air and chat with fellow guests.
The three-floor home offers accommodations for four guests. Exposed red brick arches alongside the new white walls elegantly blend old and new styles. There's an efficient kitchen for cooking your favorite meals. Unplug completely, as there is no WiFi or cable.
One of the rooms has a French double bed (slightly smaller than an American double bed and bigger than an American twin bed), while the other has an American-sized double bed. A pull-out sofa in the French double bedroom adds an additional option to sleep on. The room located in the loft of the apartment has a ceiling of 1.50 meters.
This getaway is only about four miles from Milano Centrale Railroad Station, making it easy to take day trips to such famous points of interest as scenic Lake Como, Cremona (the birthplace of the violin, they say), and vineyards dotting the rest of Lombardy. Seaside Genoa is only 90 miles away and accessible via bus or train.
Visit Milan and get a superb sampling of old and new, rustic and sophisticated, when you stay at this Lombardy vacation rental!
