found a really cool night scene with lots of people out and about. Unfortunately, not may english speakers and they all seemed to have their own little cliques. Woulda been nice to have a wing man. Only there for one night. Food was great at the place i ate at though. Saw more old ****.
... 18th century.
Next we took a trolly car ride to Santa Maria delle Grazzie to view The Last Supper. Giacomo told us all about the differences between fresco painting and the new technique Leonardo tried to invent for this piece and how this difference first led to the wall absorbing all the pollutants duling the work for centuries. How the various caretakers had tried to repair and repaint through it's lifetime until the 1970s when the began the 20 year project ...
After a less than pleasant night, John had a late breakfast and we checked out. Apart from the food episode it was a great place to stay and we would recommend the Grand Imperiale Hotel as a good place to base yourself to see Lake Como (but don't eat at Cafe Bellini - a couple of doors down!) Anyway about 11am we were picked up by our next driver who took us in a Mercedes minibus to Milan Railway station. Boy was the station busy! We arrived with a good hour to spare and John had ...
We had a wonderful flight with Delta! Kelly and I had our own row and were served dinner, snacks, breakfast & even some cheap vino while spending the hours watching free movies on our personal TVs and snoozing with complimentary eye pillows and ear plugs. Our flight touched down at 7:45am, 6 hours past EST. The trip from Malpensa airport into Milan was not quite as smooth. We guessed our way onto the Malpensa Express and green line metro - somehow we ended up in the area we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Delle Nazioni Milan
Centrally located hotel with friendly stuff.
We paid GBP56 (hotels website) for one night at this hotel. Totally agree with what has been said about this hotel, great location and friendly stuff. We were given a room with two rooms (one double bed room and another with two single beds). The bathroom is quite old but in full working order and the shower was very powerful despite that we stayed on the top floor. The only disappointment was the buffet breakfast, not too much selections.
Having booked over the internet, I guess my expectations were quite low. What we found was a pleasant hotel located close to the Central Station, with helpful multi-lingual staff, a clean and adequate room with well stocked bar, and t.v. and shower/toilet etc all in working order. Breakfast was plentiful and the staff providing it were attentive and efficient. Having read on some websites that this hotel was poor, I thought this the only way to set the record straight. It was quiet at night, the streets outside were safe, and it was a good base to tour the city. Being close to the station it was also quick to get the inter-city trains for day trips, and the airport buses too, savings loads of money on cabs. So if you just want a good clean and friendly base to tour Milan, this could be it. The only bad point is that if you just want to pop out for a quick bag of sweets/crisps to nosh in your room, don't bother there are no supermarkets or anything pertaining to be within 6 blocks.
Very convenient. Very friendly staff.
This is a barebones but appealing business hotel. It's very convenient to the Central train station (and therefore the buses that service Malpensa) and with nearby metro stops that whisk you to the Duomo, etc. The rooms are clean if a bit on the old dormitory side. The location is very quiet. The staff is very helpful. If you are looking for relatively inexpensive (for Milan) accommodations, this is a suitable, safe choice.
