Other Things to Note
TO REACH THE APARTMENT:
1)if you arrive by car:
the apartment is in the very center (Area C). Non-residents can circulate and park in this central area only with Ecopass, with daily payment, during the week and in the daytime (7.30 am-7.30 pm), and freely in the weekends and by night, from friday 7.30 pm to monday morning 7.30 am.
Not possible to park the car in front of Via Orti 12 (only for residents). You may find parking outside the Area C (200 mtrs), but it's very difficult. You can instead leave your car in a parking outside Area C. The nearests are:
Parking Medaglie d'Oro
2) If you have a flight landing at Malpensa, or Orio al Serio:
taxis from Malpensa and Orio al Serio to Milan are enough expensive (90 euros). Instead, there's a bus each 10-15 minutes from Malpensa and Orio al Serio to Central Station, it takes 50 minutes. Or you can take Malpensa Express train from Malpensa; or bus from Malpensa and Orio al Serio Airports to Milano Centrale Station.
Then from Milano Central Station you can take the Metro 3, yellow line - 6 stops to Crocetta.
From Crocetta it's a 5 minutes walk: take via Lamarmora and then turn the first to the right, via Commenda, that ends in via Orti, then turn to the left, my place is in via Orti 12.
3) If your flight lands at Linate:
you can take a taxi (not expensive – 20/30 euros, 20/30 minutes ), or
take bus 73 from Linate, and get off in Largo Augusto, then look for Bibioteca Sormani. There's a street on the left of Biblioteca Sormani - via Della Guastalla, then via Della Commenda - that leads directly to my place, Via Orti 12, at 900 mtrs. If you have doubts ask for the street of the Sinagogue.
4) If you arrive by train:
take a taxi (not expensive, 20 euro), or take the Metro 3, yellow line - 6 stops to Crocetta. From Crocetta take via Lamarmora and then turn the first on the right, via Commenda. Then turn on the left, the adress is via Orti 12.
I usually meet my guests in front of Dolcevita Café.
Please don't disturb the neighbors. Do not smoke, hear music outloud or invite other people inside the apartment. Leave the place as clean as you found it. Late check-in after 9pm will be charged 20 euros extra, please inform me before booking.
Hi, my name is Patrizia, I'm a professional singer and musician whatsoever (producer, composer, writer, choir director). I also work as a scout for Portuguese speaking writers, and I love translating books from Portuguese to Italian (I translated about 20 books already). I speak French (because of my mother), Portuguese (I lived 5 years in Brazil), and English (well, of course... I'm a singer...), and a little Spanish. I adore travelling, I visited almost all Europe and many other countries around the world, from USA to Tunisia, Morocco, India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Brazil of course... I discovered Air Bnb recently and I love to share my houses with other people, and visit someone else's one! I love any kind of food, I'm a good cook... Feel free to contact me if you have any curiosity about the 2 apartments I rent: a small, central one, and a wider and elegant one in Milan as well, at 500 mtrs from Duomo Square. See you soon!
