Milano Centrale is Italy's second largest train station, both in size and in traffic, and is located northeast of the city centre. From here, about 600 trains per day run to most major cities in the country; it is the main junction for High Speed rail and links with the rest of Europe. As always, tickets must be validated before boarding the train. Inside this monolithic structure you can purchase tickets via machines and at ticket counters, change money, visit the post office, rent a car, shop and dine. Travellers who wish to safely deposit their bags in the station before visiting the city can leave luggage at KiPoint on the ground level (€6 for the first five hours). Busy taxi ranks can be found on the left side of the station as you exit.
