We had a relatively quiet start to this morning as our walking tour did not start until 10.30. This gave us time to shower, pack, breakfast, vibes mums ( mum S was not answering) and Bethany. It is lovely to hear some news from home. We arrived punctually as that's how we roll and the guide did not turn up. A few others were there waiting as well. …
You sure notice the big city once you have spent some time in rural countryside. This is how we felt but I think it is justified as everything here is extra large. The Duomo (largest church in Europe and took over 500 yrs to build) begs to have a hundred pictures taken of it. Especially as it was in full afternoon sun. And the malls are huge with …
Train ride from Como brought us to the rather seedy area around Stazione Centrale in Milan; its a splendid building, being renovated (as many are) but we were warned about pickpockets and noticed a few lads getting herded off the train by the conductor, who may have been up to no good. Our Best Western hotel only 100 m from stazione is however …
... it properly. Today it is kept in a hermetically sealed room to protect it further. Giacomo also pointed out all the symbolism in the painting, all figures cast in light apart from Judas. The grouping of elements in threes to represent the holy trinity, even Jesus depicted in a triangular shape, and Judas and Jesus reaching for the same bread. Leonardo worked on the piece for 4 years, but set up him Milan home and vineyards just across the road.
Our final tour ...
... and rather like an English seaside town, except that the shops sell foccacias and pizza. Our hotel is half a block from the beach but most of the stoney beach areas require you to pay to get in. You can hire a deck chair too, if you pay. We walked to the "old" town but didn't explore very much more. John picked up a paninni for dinner and sat on the balcony and ate it. What a rough life we lead! We have a tour guide and tour of Cinque Terre tomorrow. Let's hope the sea isn't too ...

Close to central, the surrounding neighbourhood seems a little seedy. Not much open at night.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Madison Milan
Great Room, Great Staff, Great Location
We just returned from a trip to Italy for a couple weeks in March 2004.
With the unbelievably low price we got for our room at the Madison Hotel, my husband and I didn't expect much. But, not only was it only a block and half from the central train station, it was a gem all on its own! The lobby was spacious and well-appointed. The staff on every shift were gracious, helpful, and professional. Our room was one of the largest we have ever had in Italy (we go every year). The bed was comfortable (and we are both over 6 feet tall). The bathroom was spacious, spotless, and recently remodeled. There was plenty of room to hang all our clothes, and places to keep suitcases accessible, but out of our way. We have a tendency to use different hotels every time we visit Milan so we can connect with the different neighborhoods.
However, we will be returning to the Madison Hotel next time. It was a fantastic experience.
The worst hotel
we have ever been. We stayed there for three nights because we had to.
* Staff very unpleasant, almost despising
* No mini-bar as written on the webpage
* No laundry possible for us (thought this was written on the webpage)
* Very expensive
* During the breakfast you may be charged for eating things not included in the bed and breakfast
* TV with just a few channels and of poor quality
Nothing more of an average 2 stars hotel for the price of a four stars.
