Bright apartment in one of the liveliest areas in the city!
The Volta apartment is located on one of the liveliest and most picturesque city streets,which has been recently pedestrianized, and where you can find shops and restaurants of every kind, and where you can also experience oriental culture in Lombardy's capital.
It is located at the edge of the historic centre, a few steps from Sempione Park and the Arena venue and close to the incredibly well-known Brera district.
Easy travel to other parts of the city is guaranteed thanks to the many overground transport options and the underground (Moscova).
The apartment itself looks out onto an area which, happily, makes it particularly quiet and bright.
Recently refurbished, the apartment is decorated in a minimalist style, and is laid out into two areas: a living-room area with a red sofa bed, a modern bookshelf, and a lovely table with four chairs. There is a splendid, practical kitchen, full of cabinets and powerful appliances which line the bright back wall. Down a small corridor is the sleeping area, where you will find a comfortable double bed, and beyond that, on a higher level, a spacious walk-in wardrobe to place all your belongings, and which you access via a sturdy, black steel ladder.
The bathroom is decorated in shades of blue, with a shower unit and a washing-machine. It is modest but relatively large, and has a large window that overlooks a different side of the building from the other two areas of the apartment.
This apartment is ideal for those guests who wish to get to know the most authentic and interesting areas of the city.
Since after the second world war the transformation of the area around Porta Garibaldi-Repubblica has been hotly debated. Currently several building sites span across the whole area between Corso Como and the Island (“Isola”) district (at the heart of which is the Porta Garibaldi train station) and will radically change its appearance/assetto urbanistico.
Corso Garibaldi and Corso Como are among the most important streets in Milano where to savour good shopping and the Milanese “movida”.
The Isola district is located North of the Porta Garibaldi train station. The railway bridge over the station’s tracks, though dismal, nevertheless offers extraordinary metropolitan views. Isola is a residential district with a strong identity arising from a mixture of Milanese people with various immigrants, artists, students and an ever growing number of young professionals. It’s worth a visit on a Saturday morning, when the street market of Piazzale Lagosta takes place. Isola is a vivid and cheap city fragment which offers several cafés and inexpensive eating houses (“trattoria”).
Via Borsieri, Via Porro Lambertenghi and Piazza Minniti are at the heart of this lively district.
East of here is the Central train Station (“Stazione Centrale”). It was build in the 30’s from an older lay out in Assyro-Babylonian style by architect Stacchini. The area is inhabited by a large Middle-Eastern, African and Indian community and offers several ethnic cafés and restaurants and some gay clubs.
