About this listing
Large private room with two windows and a balcony, in an apartment downtown, in Porta Venezia. Nearby metro (line 1), trams, park, museums, shopping areas, cinemas and bars. 15 minutes walk from the Duomo.
In the apartment you'll have a private bathroom, the kitchen and wifi available. We can add beds in the room if you need it. If you wish, we can provide bicycles - perfect to get around Milan - and give you some advice on routes.
Interaction with Guests
In the bedroom and bathroom you'll have complete privacy, in the rest of the house you will find my family, especially my mother and my younger brother who'll be always ready to have a chat with you, and maybe a coffee or a glass of wine! This year I'm studying in Rome, that's why I'm leaving you my room, but I will be your online contact, you can write me for everything you need, doubts, informations or even just some tips on what to visit. In the bedroom, however, you will find several guides on monuments and restaurants of Milan and surroundings.
The house is located where once stood the "Spanish walls" of the city, right on the edge of Zone 1. So just crossing the street you find the fashion district on one side, and residential neighborhoods, where cheaper bars and stores are located, on the other. The area is very safe and quiet (except for the noisy tram), especially at night, although you may find interesting bars in a short distance!
The tram 9 and 23 stop just in front of the house (that could be a little noisy sometimes, but it's really useful to move around the city). The metro stop Porta Venezia (line 1) is just 200 meters from the house.
We're an open-minded family, so we have no strict rule. Just the rules of common sense: do not make to much noise when we're sleeping, leave us some privacy, especially in our bedrooms, and do not commit illegal acts. Anyway we've never had problems with guests until now. You'll have the keys, so you can get in and out when you want. For anything that's not written here, just contact me!
About the Host, Francesco
I was born in Rome and I grew up in Milan. I love books, travels, music and cinema. I'm a Philosophy PhD at the University "la Sapienza" of Rome, I studied one year in Paris and traveled six months in Brasil. Now I live in Rome... so I leave you my room in my parents' house in Milan! Here you'll find my younger polyglot brother Simone and my a-bit-crazy journalist parents (now my mother Carla is trying to grow tomatoes on the balcony!). Everyone of our family was born and lived in a different city so we are accustomed to cultural exchanges!
