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!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour. La famille de Francesco nous a très bien accueilli et était au petit soin pour nous. Avant le séjour Francesco a toujours répondu à mes questions et m'a bien guidé. Pendant le séjour Carla la maman de Francesco n'a pas manqué de nous guider quand nous en avions besoin. La chambre est fidèle à la description, elle est spacieuse. Nous disposions d'une salle de bain privative et de la possibilité de prendre nos repas dans la cuisine. Le quartier est très bien situé proche de tous les moyens de transports et d'une grande rue commerçante.
Bref nous gardons un très bon souvenir de notre passage à Milan et notamment parce que notre immersion dans la famille de Francesco s'est révélé très riche pour nous.
room is big and in a great location. But you will be awake by the tram 24 hours. It's pretty loud. just by your window. but Francesco's mother is very nice. She helps us a lot. By the way, it's very loud and lots of mosquitoes if you don't close the windows at night.
Nous avons eut un agréable séjour chez les parents de Francesco. Nous avons été plongé dans une famille Milanaise pour quelques jours. Nous avons tout fait à pied le centre est à proximité. Nous avions accès à la cuisine et une chambre spacieuse et agréable où il fait bon vivre. N'étant pas trop habitués aux bruits la nuit le tramways qui passe devant l'appartement nous a parfois réveillé mais ce n'était pas un problème. Merci pour leur accueil, c'est une adresse à retenir.
The place is easy to find and it is quite central. The room and the bathroom are big and clean. Since the aparment is close to the tram station it can get very noisy at night and especially since it was very hot in Milan we slept with the windows open. The noise didn't actually bothered us because we were extremely tired from all the walking and we were able to sleep immediately. However, since our windows were open there were a lot of mosquitoes thus mosquito bites all over our body.
Nevertheless, we had a good experience with them. His mother was so nice even of we didn't get to see a lot during our stay.
Bon accueil, famille sympathique. Par contre, la chambre est très bruyante en raison de la proximité d'un arrêt de métro. Difficile de dormir la nuit, surtout quand l'ado de la famille écoute la tv jusqu'à tard dans la nuit...et de façon peu discrète. Dommage, cela a un peu gâché la bonne impression générale.
I spent a really good time in francesco's room! It was very clean and his mother arla, she's very kind and helped me to go for a walk in center milan. But only one thing was not good for me. It's located very center of the city so a bit noisy and on weekends the family or frends come so it's neccessary to pay attension when use the kitchen and the toilet. I recommend to you all, ”stay francesco's room except on weekends!”

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!
