Welcome to the city of fashion, history, culture and lifestyle – Milan! The elegant and magnetic Italian city is considered one of the most desirable and vibrant cities in Europe, which, in addition to its importance and great contribution to art, cuisine, styling and the tourism industry, maintains a very successful concentration of sites at a short distance from each other and with excellent accessibility. This allows Milan to become a very diverse center of attractions, giving the many travelers the option to have all the city’s options “in the palm of one hand” and with maximum enjoyment of the look, the views, the tastes, the shops and the atmosphere.
Naturally, a large part of the hotels are concentrated in the city center – Milan City Center where the famous Duomo of Milan is located (the most central point in the city, we will expand on it shortly), but many good hotels are also located in the area of the central station – Stazione Centrale, about half an hour’s walk from the city center and where there are also areas The main shopping as well as in the Naviglio Grande district, the canal district, which is located about a kilometer from the city center and excels in its entertainment venues.
There is a wide variety of hotels in Milan itself, with the hotels that are more recommended among travelers rated between 3 and 5 stars thanks to the quality rooms, the courteous service and the various hotel options such as a good breakfast, free internet (usually), a pool and spa centers (in some hotels). These hotels are usually in the range of 140-75 euros per night, depending on the type of room and of course the season. Another option for travelers interested in a low-cost trip with a cheap flight and also a fairly cheap place to stay can turn to one of the hostels in the city. Ostello Bello for example is one such, which is considered solid and particularly meticulous. The location is only a ten minute walk from the Duomo and is very suitable for young people or families with older children. Another Ostello Bello hostel is in the Nabili canal district.
For those of you who land in the wee hours of the night, who want to get to the city but not stay in it or who are traveling in a short time to an onward destination, there is a good option to stay in a hotel that is close to the airport or even inside it.
There are three airports in Milan, the main of which is the Malpensa airport, which is located about 50 km from Milan and includes direct flights from the country (about 3 hours and 50 minutes) through a wide variety of airlines such as El Al, Arkia, Izig T and Alitalia. The other two ports are Orio al Serio, located in the nearby town of Bergamo (arrival from the country by direct flight is mainly carried out with the low-cost Ryanair company) and Linata airport, which does not include direct flights from Israel. However, each of these airports can be flown to in a variety of ways roads and through connections through other European capitals, which greatly lengthens the journey but significantly lowers the plane tickets. Please note that Malpensa is the most attractive and convenient airport to reach the city, while the Bergamo airport is considered the least convenient.
The hotels at the airports are very attractive especially to the businessmen and traveling travelers among you and they stand up very well in the value for money test, even though they are slightly more expensive (around 40-30 more euros per night) than hotels of the same level located within Milan itself. Some of these hotels have shuttles to or from the airport as well as convenient transportation to get to the city.
