Travel inspiration in Milan and Zurich
Milan, the second largest city in Italy
Milan is a main Italian city and regarded as the fashion capital of Europe. Milan is also an transport hub for Italy. The city has an important stake in the finance, commerce, media and sport of Italy. Two of its football teams, Inter Milan and Milan AC, are known throughout the world. Milan is located in the north west of Italy and is home to a number of museums, designers factory shops, churches and other landmarks. Those who love street style would love the Navigli area. In Piazza XXIV Maggio, shoppers will find brands such Custo-Barcellona, Diesel, Miss Sixteen, Gas and Fornarina, alongside second-hand clothes shops, handmade clothes and accessory stores made from silk and other precious materials.
The main railway stations of Milan are Milan Centrale and Milan Porta Garibaldi. The two stations are about 1.5 kilometres away from each other.
Zürich, the largest city of Switzerland
Zürich is a major financial centre and one of the most preferred Swiss destinations. In 2012, it was voted as the best city to live in Europe. It is an elegant metropolis on the lake bearing its name, with views over the snow-covered Alps, home to over 50 museums, 100 galleries, top hotels, shops and restaurants. Obviously it has to be Zürich! With its excellent public transport connections, this prime Swiss destination is ideal for excursions to the rest of the country. 5 days there, and you will get to know all about Zürich and neighbouring towns.
Reviews & ratings Milan - Zurich
"Paris to Milan"Ivan t.
Transport personnel in Paris terminal assisting us were great. Great overland trip from Paris to Milan. On board personnel were very good.
"Value for money!"Ra b. 27/11/2013
Five of us travelled from Venice to Milan with lots of luggage. We booked 2nd class so didn't expect any help with our luggage. We have a motto "only take what you can carry yourself" The luggage rack area was safe and easily accessible. We had seats facing each other with a table which was ideal. Comfy seats, plenty of room was just what we needed. The online booking was so simple.Will definitely recommend.
"Excellent scenery"Kazunori k. 20/11/2013
It was a nice journy from Milan to Zurich and train staff was very familiar. More cleanliness is needed, for example full trash boxes.

"71 year old couple"Geoffrey d. 11/11/2013
The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!
"Zurich to Paris by train"Geoffrey d. 10/11/2013
The whole experience of booking and then travelling with TGV Lyria has been fantastic. I will definitely use it again. Thank you.
"Train from Florence to Milan"Geoffrey d. 04/11/2013
The train is very clean and seats are comfortable. Most importantly, they are always very punctual. I realise it is cheaper to buy the ticket on-line before travel and not when you are there. The price difference can be quite great.
"RailEuropememorable experience"Satyanarayana p. 01/11/2013
I wanted to see Leonardo's painting 'The last supper'. I got my guided tour reserved for 22/09/2013 at 10 am. I booked my Rail-Europe tickets Firenge to Milan at 7 am and back at 13-15 pm by 2nd class each for 17 Euros, from India. It was a tight trip and I was tense weather I can make it. The trains were on time and I could fulfill my long cherished dream of watching Leonardo's magnum opus. Thanks to Rail-Europe for its prompt service at an affordable price.
"Convenient way to travel"Nokukhanya m. 27/10/2013
I travelled alone (female) from Geneva to Zurich and felt safe all the way. The train was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the scenery on the three hour long trip and once I got to Zurich main station I had to change trains to get to my hotel. The information desk at Zurich station were happy to direct me to the correct platform.
"Relaxed "Aby t. 26/10/2013
We (myself and wife) traveled from Luzern to Rome and the trip was in two legs. First one was from Luzern to Milan and then from Milan to Rome. We chose the train as we were interested in the landscape of Switzerland and Italy on the way. It was a comfortable trip, nice and clean coaches, good seats and comfortable cabins with very less noise. Also the view was great - through the hillsides and valleys of Switzerland and the farms and houses of Italy. Overall - very good experience.
