HireCars.co.uk compares the prices of well-known car hire companies in Italy, including the following location: Milan Station
Milan Rail Station or the Central Station is one of the most common entry points to the city for those coming in from other Italian and European cities. It serves express and fast trains coming to and from Rome, Venice, Naples and Florence as well as to and from Vienna, Munich, Zurich, Paris and Barcelona among others. This makes it a budget car rental hub in the area.
Getting around the city centre is more convenient on foot or using public transport networks such as buses and the metro railway. But it wouldn't hurt to arrange for cheap car hire at the Milan Rail Station as soon as you arrive. This is so you can also explore the outskirts of the city or even take day trips to other towns and cities near Milan.
Milan may represent everything that is trendy and modern in Italy but it does have its own share of historic landmarks and cultural attractions. The Duomo at the central square is probably one of the most popular tourist sites in the city. The imposing cathedral is the largest and most intricate work of Gothic architecture in Italy. From the top, you can experience a great view of Milan as well as the Bergamo Alps on a clear day.
For high end shopping, go to the Fashion Quadrangle. This is where you will find some of the most prestigious designer showrooms in the world. But if you're looking for retail therapy on a budget, go to the Porta Ticinese area. If you're visiting on a Saturday, you might even catch the flea market near the Darsena. Buenos Aires and Vercelli Avenues are also great places to shop in Milan.
If you haven't had enough of shopping in the city, get your car hire at the Milan Rail Station and take a drive to Serravalle Scrivia, a town that features designer outlets with more than 180 stores selling clothing, accessories, shoes and children's apparel.
