BEST AREA TO STAY IN MILAN


CHEAPER ZONE to stay in Milan


In Milan there are plenty of accommodations, for all budgets. Closer you get to the city center (Duomo), the prices will increase. On average, basic accommodation does NOT cost less than € 100 a night per a double room. The cheapest accommodations are the hostels which also offer private rooms and not just a dormitory bed.

If you don't have a preference for a particular neighborhood, and your only intent is to find a cheap accommodation in Milan,
here a 👉 cheap hostel in Milan, 1.2 km from the MUDEC, 800 meters from the IULM University and a 10-minute walk from the Romolo underground station.

- Here you point out another cheap hostel with breakfast and dinner included within 10 minutes walking distance from the Lambrate metro station and 6km from Milan Cathedral (Duomo).

- B&B Viale Monza 6 subway stops from Milan Cathedral, about 20 minutes walk from Milano Centrale train station and 10 minutes walk from the Corso Buenos Aires shopping street.

Booking.com Let's see together the description of the various areas that you can reach or where to stay even if many of them are not exactly economic:

Milan Central Train Station

If you arrive or leave by train, you will be comfortable to look for a structure near the Milan train station.

Here my tip:
Hotel Ada - a short walk from the Central Station.

Accommodation Niguarda Milan

Bicocca is the area closest to the Niguarda hospital. Many people from all over Italy come to Niguarda hospital to seek treatment or care for a relative of their own, so they are always looking for comfortable accommodation near the hospital to help their loved ones.

👉  Apartments close to the Niguarda Hospital.


Navigli Milan


Stay in the Navigli district if you are looking for a young area of ​​Milan, for the Fiori sul Naviglio event, Milan Choco Week and for the street antiques market.

Stay here if you are looking for Milan nightlife, the most popular "cocktail bars" and young people. At the end of the day, on the bank of the Naviglio Grande there is a whole set of tables and chairs ready to host people to meeting for a drink, who enjoy their post-work relaxation in one of the most fascinating glimpses of the whole city. The accommodations here are mostly railing houses within courtyards.

Milan nightlife where

This area has recently been redeveloped, on the occasion of the Expo, now it is invaded by young people. Modern area with various clubs, many bars and restaurants pleasant to walk along the streets parallel to the Naviglio.
In December you can find the Santa Claus Village and the floating ice skating rink.

Where to stay in Milan Navigli area


I stayed in this area in an apartment with the Naviglio view window right above the premises where happy hour is held. It must be said that the atmosphere is suggestive but the night is quite noisy especially on weekends for this advice to choose a structure located in a courtyard that has the most "sheltered" room or on the Darsena to avoid hearing people talking at night .

👉 I recommend the Milano Navigli Apartment a stone's throw from the canals, but out of the chaos of nightlife.


Stay in Milano Brera district


The Montmartre in Milan. Stay in Brera for the Salone del Mobile, stay close to the Academy of Arts, visit the Brera market which takes place every third Sunday of the month.

Milan's most bohemian neighborhood of design, art and creativity is at home here in Milan. If you have an artistic soul I suggest you stay in Brera among art galleries, antique shops and clubs frequented mostly by artists.


Brera district photo is offered to TripAdvisor. 


Brera is one of the nightlife districts in Milan (like Navigli, Corso Como ...) you will always find people who crowd the alleys and the clubs. A tourist area but that keeps its charm.
Pleasant atmosphere especially walking in the evening among the narrow pedestrian streets.
Stay here if you are looking for an authentic place with a romantic aftertaste.

👉 Recommended apartment in the Brera area .


Best area to stay near Duomo of Milan



In the heart of the fashion capital. Stay here for Christmas Markets, Milan Film Festival, shopping.

Milan city center is offered to TripAdvisor. 

Stay in the center of Milan if you want to stay close to the "La Scala" theater and go shopping: on the side of the Duomo there are numerous stores including the famous "Rinascente" (go up to the top floor you will find the food area and a bar from where it is possible to have a coffee from the panoramic terrace enjoying a beautiful view of the Duomo).

👉 Studio in Milan Center, 1.3 km from the Duomo and the Quadrilatero della Moda.


Milan Castello Sforzesco district


The Champs-Elysées of Milan. Stay here for the "Obei Obei" fair.

In this area, right in the space in front of the entrance to the Sforzesco castle, the famous Christmas market 2019, OBej - OBej will take place! Date: 5 to 8 December 2019.

If you are looking for a place full of restaurants and bars where you can sip a cocktail at sunset overlooking Arco della Pace or towards Castello Sforzesco, you must stay in Corso Sempione: a kilometer avenue full of restaurants of all kinds and for all budgets. This area is very lively in the evening because of the pubs offering aperitifs.

Milan Castle

The Sforzesco castle is gorgeous and well kept. Absolutely to visit (at least the outside and the inner courtyard which are freely accessible).
Council, to enjoy Milan, a walk on foot from the Duomo to here (or vice versa). Inside the castle there are various museums.

👉 Accommodation with views of Piazza Castello


Stay in Milan Chinatown district

Oriental flavors in Milan.

This photo of Chinatown district is offered to TripAdvisor. 

The Milanese Chinatown is located about 1.5 km from Corso Sempione in Via Paolo Sarpi.
A multi-ethnic neighborhood whose main street is decorated with Chinese lanterns. Here you will find shops with a decidedly oriental feel: silk items, leather and restaurants serving Asian dishes. The Fabbrica del Vapore cultural center offers exhibitions of contemporary art.
During the Chinese carnival, this area is celebrated with parades, traditional and colorful clothes.

👉 Accommodation in chinatown district



Milan CityLife Shopping District 


Stay in Milan Citylife for "Milan Food week fair" and shopping.

CityLife Shopping District, located in the area of ​​the former city fair is a shopping district where you can admire spectacular skyscrapers, modern buildings and a city park for those who want to take a walk in the countryside: one of the most innovative and representative neighborhoods of the revolution has affected Milan in the last decade.

Recommended accommodation in Milan City Life

Milan Food Week - The Lifestyle Kitchen is located within the CityLife Shopping District and is just one of the various locations where the week dedicated to food takes place.

Nearest stop: Metro Lilla M5 Tre Torri.


Stay near Fiera Milano city


Book an accommodation here, if you want or you have to attend a fair. The most famous are the festival of the East, and the BIT 2020.

Stay close to the Milan city fair (the bigger is the Rho fairgrounds) if you take part in one of the many events that take place in this exhibition space.

Fiera Milano City is easily accessible by public transport with the M5 underground line: Portello stop.

Recommended accommodation 30 meters from the metro:
👉Stay in the Fiera Milano City area


Stay in the Milan fashion district

A break between luxury and sports cars.

The Quadrilatero della Moda is an area dedicated to luxury shopping located in the historic city center. The famous Via Monte Napoleone is lined with high-fashion boutiques, the most famous and exclusive brands can be found here along with antique shops and elegant cafes housed in neoclassical palaces. Luxury cars parked in this street give an idea of ​​the main customers who visit these boutiques.

👉 Accommodations near Montenapoleone. This area is also perfect for shopping. You'll find brands like: Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Ralph Lauren.

Nearby, the museum of Palazzo Morando displays period costumes, while the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum is dedicated to the decorative arts of the Renaissance period.

Staying in Milan Meazza Stadium - San Siro

Milan for concerts and sports.

For sportsmen, for those who go to Milan to watch the match of the favorite team or a concert by some Big , I recommend a structure near the stadium. The stadium is composed of 3 rings, it is rather large, well equipped with public baths, bars, street vendors, museum and store both of Inter and of Milan.

The San Siro area is well connected by public transport, I recommend these 2 structures:

👉 Apartments near the Meazza stadium in Milan
👉 Milan accommodation with a view of San Siro: perfect for those who have to go to the stadium for a concert or a game. Very convenient garage, just a few meters from the property.

This photo of San Siro is offered by TripAdvisor.


Milan Train Station - Quartiere Isola


Stay here to visit the Gae Aulenti square, the vertical forest and stay near the Garibaldi FS train station.

One of the newest and most modern districts of Milan that stands near the Garibaldi FS train station adjacent to Corso Como: a lively street full of restaurants and clubs.

Isola, a science fiction district. Leaving Porta Garibaldi, the exclusive skyscrapers and buildings like those of the Bosco Verticale with balconies full of greenery are immediately visible.
A photo in Piazza Gae Aulenti surrounded by skyscrapers and fountains is a Must.
👉 Recommended apartment in the Isola neighborhood


This photo of isola district is offered by TripAdvisor

To reach this part of Milan, or move to other areas, it is necessary to use the purple subway line: modern and completely automatic (without driver).
Residential area, quite safe and perfect for reaching other areas of Milan.

Milan Bicocca and Città studi


One of the university districts of Milan. Stay in a university area.


A more informal climate can be found in Bicocca, the area is mostly frequented by students. Here is the Pirelli HangarBicocca cultural center and the Arcimboldi Theater where concerts and musicals can be seen.

Città Studi, on the other hand, is an excellent choice for travelers interested in well organized public transport, architecture and historical centers, as well as the numerous universities that are located in the area.

The Bicocca Village is a large shopping center for shopping. If, on the other hand, you want to spend a relaxing day in the countryside, wandering around the paths and stopping at one of the many picnic areas, you can go to the nearby Parco Nord Milano.

Milano Hotel Milano Bicocca ideal for a business trip 15 minutes on foot from the Istria metro stop, with connections to the Garibaldi railway station, and 5 km from the center of Milan.

Where to sleep in Gran Canaria in November? Where to go in Gran Canaria in December? Gran Canaria where to sleep on New Year's Eve? Best area in Gran Canaria in August. Best area to stay in Gran Canaria South.


Plana a Holidays in Gran Canaria in 3 step


☑️ Fly with the low-cost airline Ryanair to Las Palmas airport.

DIRECT FLY TO CANARY

Cheapest accommodation Gran Canaria South




GRAN CANARIA


The North is different from the South.
The best area to stay in Gran Canaria if you look for beautiful beaches sheltered from the wind, is located in the south west of the island. The most crowded of northern European tourists and in recent years also by numerous Italians.

BEST AREA TO STAY IN GRAN CANARIA


The area in which I recommend staying in Gran Canaria Sud is Puerto Rico. Excellent strategic point near the 3 most beautiful beaches of the island sheltered from the wind with a lively centre full of restaurants, shops and a pleasant sea promenade.

See the cheapest hotels in Puerto Rico (apartments included).

Puerto Rico


Very touristic country enclosed between 2 valleys that make it one of the warmest countries on the island. A must in winter. Strategic point to see the most beautiful beaches in the south of Gran Canaria.

Puerto Rico is located between Amadores and Anfi del mar with their beautiful beaches. 3 and 5 km away respectively. Also Puerto Rico itself has a conch-shaped beach, protected from strong winds, to take refuge in winter. The problem of this country are the parking lots so if you travel by car it is better to choose a facility that has parking included.

Cheapest accommodation in Puerto Rico



Playa de Amadores


Amadores is a fraction of Puerto Rico. There is no real centre but many tourist residences and hotels that rise in this valley adjacent to Puerto Rico. It is completely perched on the hill and all the buildings that rise in this area surround the beautiful beach, as you can see in the image below.

From this beach you can enjoy spectacular views of the ocean and Tenerife and fantastic sunsets so I recommend it as a destination for a romantic vacation.

👉 List of budget accommodation in Playa Amadores in order from the cheapest.


ANFI DEL MAR



Beautiful beach in Gran Canaria (the most beautiful in my opinion) but as a location it is inaccessible, it is not really a country but an exclusive resort of private accommodation.


👉 List of cheapest accommodation in Anfi del Mar (Arguineguin playa).


There are not many facilities available in the area and the few that are there are expensive or are booked quickly. So if your goal is to stay here, book early. The alternative is to stay in nearby Puerto Rico and get here by car or bus. They are about 5 km away.

Paid parking just before arriving at the beach (affordable prices: around € 4 per day). Umbrellas and sun beds can be rented for the whole day or just half a day otherwise you can do everything independently. In Spain the beaches are always free.

Puerto De Mogan


Small fishing port, very charming and colourful. Suitable for families and perfect in the coldest months of January and February.

Puerto de Mogan is different from the other places mentioned: it is very characteristic with its white houses decorated with colourful and beautiful flowers. I really like this place that I consider to be on a human scale. Tourist too but less "invaded by buildings, palaces" there are beautiful residences with tropical gardens and the historic centre has not lost its typical local taste.

When I visited Gran Canaria for the first time, I wanted to buy a house here. Unfortunately, the price of the properties was twice what I would have bought in Puerto Rico.

👉 List of cheapest accommodation in Puerto de Mogan (apartments included)


Playa del Ingles


Playa del Ingles or Maspalomas which are "cooler" countries in the summer than the south-west area, which I prefer in every season of the year.

Many think that the temperatures in Gran Canaria in August or mid-August are unbearable but wrong.

Temperatures can reach 30 degrees, it's true, but the heat is dry.
Except for episodes of Calima (warm wind coming from Africa) summer temperatures in the Canaries they are similar to winter ones, they are only more stable and it is not necessary to look for an area protected from the winds because the summer in Gran Canaria is fantastic both in the North and in the South so the choice is wide.

Playa Del Ingles is the most popular area, the first massively exploited in the 1980s. There are many facilities in the area is large, more town and flat indicated for those with mobility problems. Here too there are various areas where it is possible to go and have fun, bars and restaurants also on the prominent long beach.

👉 List of cheapest accommodation in Playa del Ingles (in order from the cheapest, private apartments included).

MASPALOMAS


The most suggestive area with the famous Dunes, suitable for pensioners, families with children, relaxation, a starting point for visiting the island. Maspalomas does not have direct access to the dunes, it is more considered a residential area despite being full of residences many people live there or are there 6 months a year to spend the winter.
If you prefer to stay in a bungalow, rather than in an apartment or building, here you are spoiled for choice. The area is quiet and well served: the only care is to rent a car to move easily.


👉 List of cheapest accommodation in Maspalomas


Meloneras


Meloneras rises prominently in Maspalomas on a long avenue that overlooks the ocean but does not have a real beach if not the adjacent one huge.
The resorts that arise here are mostly Grand Hotels and they all have huge pools and are often heated with sea water so not having direct access to the sea is the least of their problems. Rather! In this area, the climate is more windy than in the south-west area and there is also the open beach so if you want to stay here and swimming, it is better to opt for a structure with heated pool.

👉 List of accommodations in Meloneras by price (holiday homes and villas included).

The area is full of restaurants of a certain level and boutiques. Social life takes place all along the coast: between the lighthouse and the end of a few kilometer walkway.

BEST AREA to STAY GRAN CANARIA NORD


LAS PALMAS

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a destination indicated in summer, if you also intend to make life by sea. In winter it is a bit gloomy and cold but it "warms up" during the carnival period. It is a cosmopolitan, young city (there is a university and many Europeans come for Erasmus) full of shops and clubs.
The main street of Las Palmas is Calle Triana very long and always full of people, restaurants ...

👉 List of the cheapest accommodations in Las Palmas.

📍 YOU KNOW THAT Does Las Palmas have the largest carnival in the world after Rio De Janeiro? And you don't even need a passport to get here.
The carnival in the Canaries is a riot of parades of musical carts, masquerade balls, folk dances ... what better time to visit the island?

Personally I would advise you to stay in Las Palmas for 3 nights in order to visit the historic centre and take long walks in the avenue that runs along Europe's most beautiful urban beach.

Well, I hope I guided you in the choice ...

Other places not listed in this list are: Vecindario, Galdar, Jinamar, Ingenio, Telde, Fataga ... even not for the classic beach vacation.

Prefer the South West area for tourism / beaches / sea and Las Palmas cosmopolitan city to study, meet young people, visit monuments, shops ... (it's the capital).
The rest of the island can certainly be visited but not suitable for staying on holiday if not that alternative night to spend in some fincas or rural house.

BEST AREA TO STAY in LAKE GARDA

September 08, 2019 0 Comments
Lake Garda, the most beautiful villages are:

  1. Sirmione
  2. Salò
  3. Peschiera
  4. Lazise
  5. Desenzano
  6. Riva del Garda
  7. Garda city

best area to stay in lake garda
Best area to stay In Garda

Let's start our trip...

Lake Garda where to sleep? Where to stay at Lake Garda? Better Sirmione or Desenzano? Best location on Lake Garda. The most beautiful countries to stay at Garda lake.

Hi I'm Moira, born and grew up in Italy. Today I'll talk about one of my favorite areas in Northern Italy...

where to sleep at Lake Garda
Sirmione castello scaligero

LAKE GARDA: BEST AREA TO STAY



Personally I prefer 👉 to stay in Desenzano as a base for visiting the lake and going out in the evenings. There are various accommodations: apartment, starred hotel, and the downtown is full of bars, ice cream parlors, pizzerias, restaurants, events ...

⇨ If I want to sunbathe and swimming in the lake, I prefer to stay in Manerba del Garda. I really like the view in this area: it was love at first sight. In fact I have already booked 2 weekends in July and August at this lakefront hotel. 👉 Manerba del Garda.
The beaches are pebbly, free or with the possibility to rent sunbeds and deckchairs, there is a kilometer walk along the coast and on the other side there are all the residences and campsites full of tourists.

👉 Self-catering lake Garda

Also nice to visit the "island of rabbits" (The island of San Biagio): an island far 200 meters from the coast can also be reached by walking through the stretch of water that separates it from the mainland. To do during the low tide.

Manerba del Garda

In the picture I was in the middle of Lake Garda just near the island of San Biagio. From here you can see a wonderful sunset.


Lake Garda, the most beautiful locations in all seasons



  • Sirmione

Best place to stay in lake garda for couples

For those who prefer lively places, the most beautiful place in Garda is certainly Sirmione.
The village of Sirmione is as fascinating as it is crowded with tourists. One of the most famous and visited places of Garda thanks to the famous Aquaria Thermal SPA with its outdoor swimming pools heated in winter.

In the evening Sirmione lights up like a little Paris, there are numerous restaurants and bars for all tastes so if you want to stay in a lively center, even if small, I suggest you stay here. In summer it is very crowded especially on weekends. The season starts at Easter and lasts until the end of October.

Scaliger Castle, Sirmione


Tip: Choose an accommodation with parking included otherwise you will have to pay a parking space in this area and they are quite expensive.

If you are traveling in the summer, I suggest you to stay in this Holiday Village near Sirmione where the parking space is included in the price and you can enjoy a beautiful swimming pool.
Staying in the center of Sirmione is not comfortable, the area is a ztl (Limited traffic zone).
Better to stay just outside the Scaliger castle or in neighboring towns like Colombare and Lugana, it is less expensive. However, if you want to experience the magic of staying in the center of Sirmione, prefer this structure where you can park in the backyard, for free: ⇨ stay in Sirmione peninsula.

To know: There is a convenient shuttle bus service that from Colombare takes you directly in front of the Sirmione castle gate. The cost is € 1 each way per person (simple travel ticket can be purchased on the ground for € 1.00 or € 1.50 if you buy the ticket on board the bus).


Booking.com




Garda where to sleep in...



  • Salò



Salò is located in the south-west part of Lake Garda in the zone known as the Riviera dei Limoni: among the mountains, natural landscapes and tranquility.

The most touristic area of Salò, and the most characteristic, is enclosed in the historical center composed narrow streets, alleys and squares with ancient noble palaces, elegant shops, numerous restaurants and hotels. Surely, together with Riva del Garda, it is one of the most chic areas of the lake with its Art Nouveau buildings.

Salò, Garda lake


Beaches: In Salò you will find free beach equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas (if you want to pay the rental) and a part of the beach allowed for dogs.

Staying on Lake Garda can be quite expensive. If you want to save money, I advice you to look for an accommodation not just in front of the lake but in the neighboring countries. If you are looking for a place with reasonable prices to be on Lake Garda, with a nice terrace overlooking the lake and a garden overlooking the mountains, I suggest the House of one of the group members I manage on Facebook: Elsa Anselmini. She and her beautiful family are local experts who will help you by giving you tips on things to do and visit. Check availability 👉 Lake Garda holiday apartment.



  • Riva del Garda



Riva del Garda is surrounded by mountains, the climate here will be more variable and cool compared to the southern countries of the lake (Desenzano, Sirmione ...) so if you are looking for a location with a more tolerable climate in summer, head here.

lago di garda
Riva del Garda view from the lake

Riva del Garda is the area indicated for those looking for a wide beach and / or a lover of water sports. The city is cosmopolitan, there are many German tourists. The historic center is as characteristic as all the villages on Lake Garda. There are a good number of accommodation, facilities and is a good starting point to see the upper part of Lake Garda and the neighboring Trentino towns.

alloggiare sul garda
Riva del Garda

I recently stayed in Riva del Garda (early January), I stayed in a very comfortable hotel near the lake and the historic center (but not in the ztl area).
It's called 👉 Grand Hotel Liberty.

There are various rooms with affordable prices to be a Grand hotel. Included in the price there was the use of the internal SPA (swimming pools and saunas) and the abundant breakfast with a very inviting buffet: mini krapfen (delicious), cakes, speck jams and local cheeses. There are often discount offers for booking a room. Good location for a romantic weekend.

Riva del Garda
Hotel Liberty, Riva del Garda




  • Desenzano


Best area on Lake Garda for shopping


There are a few beaches in Desenzano and rather small. The most comfortable equipped with a bar and a sunbed and deck chair is located just outside the historic center and it is called "Desenzanino Sea side resort".
The local market takes place every Tuesday morning along the street overlooking the lake in the downtown core.
Along the coast there are also the most popular discos, pubs, clubs... for nightlife lovers.
I always stay around via Olimpia in one of the many apartments in this area because there are convenient parking lots (free in low season ). The accommodation along this area are near the beach like this B & B overlooking the lake. See the accommodations in the recommended area, in the map below ⇩:


Booking.com





  • Lazise and Peschiera


Garda where to sleep for theme parks


Lazise and Peschiera are the best places to stay to reach the most popular amusement park in this area from the best known Gardaland (located in Ronchi in the town of Castelnuovo del Garda) to Movieland (Lasize), Caneva world aquapark (located in Pacengo, fraction of Lazise). A few kilometers away from each other, as you can see in the map below.


Booking.com



They are 2 very pretty places. Villages full of narrow alleys, shops, restaurants, hotels. Both in Peschiera and Lasize you can find a corner where you can lie down to sunbathe but if you really want to suggest the widest and longest beach area, choose, without a doubt, Peschiera del Garda. This apartment is 200 meters from the lakefront Mazzini ⇨ B & B in Peschiera .



  • Garda city



Garda is a village located on the east coast of the homonymous lake.
As you can see in the pictures, there is a nice old town also full of shops, bars, restaurants, hotels like all the villages of the lake as they are very touristy and visited.

garda piazza
Garda downtown


From the historical center a road runs along the lake where people, in some area without rocks, sunbathe. The photo below is not retouched, colors are just those of the lake that I photographed in one of my beloved walks.
If you want to stay in this area for a weekend, I recommend a modern B & B with parking included ⇨ best are to stay in Garda.

Garda lake panorama

Well, my tips are finished. I guided you to discover the 6 most popular villages of Garda where to stay.
Whatever your choice, I'm sure you'll be fine because they are all wonderful places.

It's the neighborhood that's farthest from the Expo 2020, about 50 kilometers away.
If you want to stay a few nights in this area, I suggest you this hotel with a nice view of the city and the canal.

The main Dubai highway is called Sheikh Zayed Road, you will have to go there to visit the modern city and see its many attractions.

Best period to go to Dubai


If you are considering organizing a vacation to Dubai, you can go during the Dubai expo that will take place from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021.

Tip: if you can, it is better to organize the trip in winter so as not to be invested by the very torrid temperatures of this area risking to be segregated always in air-conditioned buildings. In spring, and especially in summer, it is very hot, it often goes over 40 degrees.

The Dubai expo, now under construction, will be held in an exhibition area of ​​45,000 square meters (for which you wear comfortable shoes 😅) and will be easily reachable from any hotel thanks to the "Metro Expo" (line under construction) or taking an "Expo Riders" bus dedicated to the event.

The exhibition area will be built near the Al Maktoum airport. See the map in the dedicated chapter.

Well, I hope I helped you choose the best area to stay in Dubai. I am sure you will be fascinated by this city of many facets and opportunities.
