... the Castello Sforzesco, we grabbed a gelato and strolled over in the glorious midday sun. Giacomo explained about how Leonardo had designed the walls of the city with outer brick layers for strength and inner rubble for flexibility. He has explained back at the Duomo that until it was built most of the city was made from brick because there are no rock areas to quary around Milan. The castle was the same with stone reserved for the main fortifications and bricks for ...
... car drivers to drive. Luckily he drove well as once we left the autostrada, it was very, very windy to get to our hotel. Also Wendy is probably almost cured of her fear of tunnels as we lost count of how many we went through in the almost 90 minutes it took to get to Monterosso. We checked in at Hotel Palme, checked out our fourth storey room with sea view and balcony and went for a quick orientation walk. Apparently we are staying in the "new" town which is very busy, lots ...
... through Galleria Vittorio Emanuele to get to Via Montenapoleone, Milan's upscale shopping street to droll over the designer apparel. We couldn't resist stopping for gelato which was exceptionally delicious! Just when I thought I was getting the hang of the city, we headed to the Navigli area for "apperitivo".... We were completely lost and walking in circles for 3 hours. We ended up at a subpar Italian restaurant, but were happy to be able to sit down. Desperate to actually ...
After a leisurely breakfast we caught a water taxi to the station,much quicker than the ferry, boarded our train and off we went.Arrived in Milan at 1,30 and were at our Hotel Sanpi by 2 pm,had a bit of a rest and went out for lunch and a look around.Found ourselves in the middle of the city where there are lots of old buildings and a statue of Leonardo DeVinci which is right near the beautiful old shopping plaza,pretty spectacular. While we were walking around there were police cars ...
... stop services for as soon as the one we saw finished a whole lot of new priests etc came out and started another service. Lots of tourists join in, the same in Notre Dame, and I guess if you believe it would be nice to say you have had communion in one of those places. Did two hop on hop of bus tours - there are three in all as the all go to different areas of the city. Will do the last one tomorrow (Monday) and hopefully go ...

Historical Traveler Reviews UNA Hotel Cusani Milan
I've traveled to Milan several times and the Cusani has the best location, especially for travelers going in and out of Malpensa airport via the Malpensa Xpress. In addition, the staff at the Cusani is terrific, doing everything they can to help you find a convenient restaurant for your tastes and making sure you get a taxi when you need one, or a fast breakfast before you head to the airport. The rooms are as quiet as bank vaults, and fitted out with every modern convenience. I wasn't disturbed by any noise whatsoever at this hotel. I should also mention that it's in a great location to enjoy Milan's sophisticated night life and restaurants and many of its sites: It's within easy walking distance of the via Dante, the Corso Magenta and the via Brera, as well as the Sforzeca and the Last Supper. Book through an online hotel booker for the best rates.
Recommended and very well located
This is a good choice in Milan if you happen to get one of the special rates. We paid 110 EURO including breakfast (+10 EURO surcharge for room service). The staff is very friendly, standard rooms are modern and not exciting but offer all necessary comfort and are quite big. The location is top, a mere 5-10 minutes walk to Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele and Scala. They have a private garage which is very convenient if you travel by car.
I went on holiday to Milan and Lake Maggiorie in May 2005. I stayed in a double room for 4 nights. The soundproofing was good; I didn't hear other guests or the traffic/trams outside. The room was comfortable and had a well stocked mini bar. Another reviewer said you didn't have a kettle in the room, but there was a kettle (+cups) in my room to make your own teas/coffee. The bathroom was spacious and they were generous when it came to the amount of towels provided (unlike some hotels in Italy that I've stayed in). There was plenty of choice at breakfast.
This is a good hotel, especially its perfect location. Not all rooms are huge as one reviewer has said. Suggest you check to see the room first. There is nothing in the room for coffee or tea, so if you are the type of person that does not want to go to the restaurant just for a coffee, or wait 15 minutes for one to be brought up by room service, then bring your own equipment.
We booked this hotel as a special offer on LastMinute for £200 each for 3 nights in a "Superior Double Room" and it was worth every penny. As soon as you step out of the metro the hotel is right in front of you, right beside the Castle so very central.
Very good value
Stayed three nights in Sep 2003 at recommendation of Milanese friends.
In a city where luxury rooms trade at 500 euros and up, I was very pleasantly surprised to find a room as comfortable as any and a large marble bath with all bells and whistles, all recently refurbished in a woodsy-marbly soft style. Think of it as a fine business hotel with great rooms. The public rooms are typical of a sleek business hotel and the staff are helpful. If you go, ask for a room facing the square - much nicer view than the streetside rooms. For the dealseeker who wants a luxury room, I highly recommend una cusani.
