Last summer I was traveling back from Ireland to Turin. In a trip like this you have to stop at Milan’s airport, take a bus to Milan’s Central Train Station and part from there by train to Turin.
Milan’s Central Train Station is the second largest of all Italy. It serves around 600 trains per day and receives thousands of visitors virtually from all around the world.
I had some time while waiting for my train so I just wandered around and took some pictures.
My train back home was about to depart at midday. In Milan’s Central Train Station is really common to have the same trains depart from the same rails. Some times there are some exceptions. This day my rail was no. 4.
Milan’s Central Train Station also connects Italy with some other European destinations. This is a high speed train that travels from Milan to cities in Switzerland.

The next photo brings me some memories of the not-so-long past.
With so many people visiting the station, it is clear that Milan’s Central Station must be taken care of continuously.
The station has several stories. One has to take the following stairs to go underground where you will find Milan’s Metropolitan System.
The roof is TALL!
And for now this is the end of our journey.
Do you usually travel in train? Is it common in your country to travel in train between countries or cities. In Mexico it is not common, we use buses.
