This apartment is very basic, but has everything you need, and has a great atmosphere created by an artist. The little attic bedroom is cute, but requires skills to climb into, and gets too hot in the summer. Our kids loved it however! There are plenty bars and little shops and restaurants nearby. It is conveniently located near the Centrale train station, but the neighborhood feels safe. The historic tram #1 will take you right into the old heart of Milan. The unfortunate combination of heat wave, lack of air-con, and street noise, is the reason I can not give top rating. Francesca was very kind and responsive, and we had a great time. Thanks again!
