Close to NAVIGLI. Navigli area is the most visited by Milan residents, due to the presence of numerous restaurants, fashionable bars and ethnic clubs. Some decades ago the Navigli circle, which was constituted by small navigable channels that are almost disappearing, encompassed the historic city centre of Milan. Nowadays the ancient handicraft shops of Milan, which date from the beginning of the century have been replaced by modern shops and restaurants, turning the area into one of shopping, design and clubs. You can also visit the Sanctuary of Santa Rita da Cascia and the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which is an excellent example of renaissance architecture. There are good connections to the underground, bus and tramway that allow you to reach the main tourist attractions of the city. Lombardy (Latin: Langobardia, Italian: Lombardia, Western Lombard: Lumbardìa, Eastern Lombard: Lombardia) is one of the 20 regions of Italy. The capital is Milan. One-sixth of Italy's population lives in Lombardy and about one fourth of Italy's GDP is produced in this region. The languages are Italian, Western Lombard and Eastern Lombard. The primary religion is Catholic, of Ambrosian rite or Roman rite. Milan (Italian: Milano; Western Lombard: Milan (listen)) is one of the largest cities in Italy, located in the plains of Lombardy. The municipality (Comune di Milano) has a population of 1.3 million. The Milan metropolitan area, depending on the specific definition, has a population ranging from 2.9 to 7.4 million. The municipal border covers a relatively small area (about one-eighth of that of Rome) because of the historical development of high density centres in agriculturally rich Lombardy. Milan is renowned as one of the world capitals of design and fashion. The English word milliner is derived from the name of the city. The Lombard metropolis is famous for its fashion houses and shops (such as along via Montenapoleone) and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in the Piazza Duomo (reputed to be the world's oldest shopping mall). The city hosted the World Exposition in 1906 and will host the Universal Expo in 2015. Inhabitants of Milan are referred to as 'Milanese' (Italian: Milanesi or informally Meneghini or Ambrosiani). The Olona river, the Lambro river and the Seveso creek run through Milan. Olona and Seveso run mostly underground. Milan is one of the major artistic centres of northern Italy. Its chief landmarks include: * The Duomo, the world's largest collection of marble statues with the widely visible golden Madonna statue on top of the spire, la Madunina (little Madonna), the symbol of Milan. * Teatro alla Scala. Milan is also one of the most important centres in the world for Opera lirica, with his famous Teatro alla Scala (La Scala). * The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a large, covered arcade linking the Duomo's piazza with the Teatro alla Scala. * The Castello Sforzesco * The Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio * The Palaeo-Christian Basilica of San Lorenzo * The Biblioteca Ambrosiana, containing drawings and notebooks by Leonardo da Vinci among its vast holdings of books, manuscripts, and drawings, and is one of the main repositories of European culture. The city is also the home of the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. * The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which houses one of the most famous paintings of Leonardo da Vinci, The Last Supper (L'ultima cena or Il cenacolo). * The church of Santa Maria presso San Satiro, with a famous trompe l'oeil traditionally ascribed to Bramante * The Cimitero Monumentale di Milano. * The Pinacoteca di Brera, Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Poldi Pezzoli, the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum and the Musei del Castello galleries, which host a great number of pictorial masterpieces.

The apartment was perfect, 100% corresponded to the photos. The person in charge was waiting for us at the door. The apartment had all the elements described. Super correct. The area is very quiet. Children have space to play perfectly. The apartment is located very close to the motorway junction, easy to find. Near the apartment there is super markets, bakeries, stores, everything.
Description and photos of appartment were accurate. Proximity to transport, supermarket, on street free parking a plus. Facilities adequate for our family with teenagers and with all that was required for a comfortable stay. Original interior. Enrico was very helpful & provided enough information to help us during our stay.
Our family (two adults and three children) stayed at this apartment two days in January 2013. The location of it is very good for visiting center of the city. The description and the photoes are accurate. The property was clean and had everything for a short stay (even some sugar, salt, cooking oil and spices), free Wi-Fi. We have not seen the owner but he has given to us very helpful and clear instructions about the stay in Milan and in the apartment via e-mail. His assistant has given us keys. As it was winter it was quite cold in the apartment. We used air-conditioning to make it warmer. Also there is a problem with the electricity as it was mentioned in the other review. Towels were not very clean, some black mold in the shower downstairs, and one night we saw strange insects in the shower room downstairs. I would recommend to stay at this apartment when it is warm outside.
It was easy to get on to the tram and get to the center. The owner was very helpful. We did enjoy our stay there but would have been nice if there was more hot water.
The Milan loft was generally comfortable. We were surprised to find no leisure seating other than the dining table. The loft is quite cramped but adequate and the two bathrooms (and showers) were a definite plus. Although the apartment is in a secured facility we were surprised by two men trying to enter the apartment at 3:30 in the morning. Since we only spoke English and they only spoke Italian we were unable to determine why they wanted to get into the apartment, but they eventually left. You must always take the maximum security measures while traveling. Initially there was a problem with the power in the apartment (main fuse kept blowing with only a few items turned on). The apartment owner had the problem fixed and the last two days were uneventful.
