Interaction with Guests
My interaction with guest depends on the fact if i'm in Milan in that moment or not:when i'm there,i will do my best to make you feel part of the house and help you if you need suggestions or tips about the city,when i'm not there,my lovely collaborators gonna receive you,and you can in any case counting on me writing me here or calling me!
The flat is located in a quiet and safe area,composed basically by italian families and young artists(cause there are many loft photo/video studio all around).The feeling is a bit of a little italian town,not of a big metropolitan city.
If you will rent a bike,just 10 minutes cycling(or 20 walking),you can get to a beautiful open country,in the Barona area,for a sunny and green excursion.
You obviously have many services all around the area(three supermarkets,farmacy,many classic breakfast italian bars,restaurants and tabacchi).
About monuments,you can amire the church of San Cristofaro(from XII century),on the naviglio of Lodovico il Moro(check the pictures),10 minutes walking.

About pubblic transport,right behind the house,150 m walking, there's the stop of Bus number 74-direction Porta Genova MM2 metro green line,the heart of Navigli canals,reachable in 15 minutes,8 bus stops-

Other Things to Note
What can i say more?if you think you need a 5 stars hotel with luxury stuff this is not the place for you.
I tried to make my simple house comfortable and furnish it with colours and good vibes.I ll try to make you feel at home,in a warm and clean house.The spirit is definetely young,but also for old people with a young soul.
You will probably meet others travellers or locals as me.
Nothing so stricht,just common sense rules.
As don't smoke in the house,just using balconies,
take care of the recycling rubbish paying attention where you throw it out what(it's dividedin a simple way in the kitchen),
don't slam the doors of the house to respect the others guests,
and don't be noise especially after 22,for the others guests and for the neighbours.
Obviously no party in the house(but for sure you can drink with the others guests)
It's not allowed that someone else sleeps over during your stay,but you can always ask me for particular request,
Via Modica, felt like home! A place for those who like Italian culture in a not obviously way.
David is a great host.
The room is very comfortable, the morning view is inspiring and the bathroom really clean. I do recommend!
I stayed at this property for six nights, and enjoyed the privacy and amenities of the room. I did not meet Davide, but his roommate Samia was there to check me in and help me with anything I needed.
It's a very self-sufficient kind of place, but it has everything you could need.
Tutto bene, ragazzi simpatici, stanza abbastanza pulita.
First time using this service, was an extremely positive and smooth one. Never actually met Davide but all my (many) needs were taken care of! I must have messaged him like 30+ times, always received a quick, helpful response. Will definitely look this place up again the next time i'm in Milan!! Comfy bed and he even had an American flag laid out on the table when i got there, nice touch!!

About the Host, David
I'm 26 years old italian student of psychology,living my life in Milan and Berlin.
Airbnb is a great opportunity for a democratic way of travelling,where every traveller can be also a host,and every host can be also a guest.
And that is what has happened to me.
Renting out rooms here it has been what made me survived and continue my studies.
I've hosted more than 400 people in almost 3 years,and that was one of the most amazing experience of my life.
So much good memories with my guest!i had the unic opportunity to learn different mentalities,stories,cultures,just sharing my house :)
My biggest passion are music(from rock to techno),cinema,and obviously,travelling.
Berlin is the greatest city in Europe,
i think it's important for the world and your healthyness to become vegetarian.
At the end of all,i was born and i'm still breathing,and that's already a good point
