← Back to ‘How to Choose the Best Places to Stay When Traveling’

Earlier this year, Milan hosted the Expo 2015 — and as the city calms down after the global event, it’s clear that the energy remains. Milan is known internationally for its exceptional taste in fashion, and the city is rich in its vibrant history and design. Visitors will quickly fall in love with the art and culture and should be sure to visit major attractions like Il Duomo, Sforza Castle, and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

At the same time, we’re really into seeing the local side of the city, and what better way to do that than staying with a local host? We’re daydreaming about a trip to the striking metropolis, so we rounded up a list of Airbnb’s we’d be more than happy to stay at.

A room in Milan Centre

Your host, Maria, is an Airbnb “Superhost,” which means that she’s an experienced host with at least 80 percent of five-star reviews. We love the minimal design in this chic space and are digging the eclectic meets contemporary decor.

Cozy loft in the Navigli-Design District

It was the pop of yellow that caught our eye, but thoughtfully-placed art is what sold us on this trendy apartment. From the beautiful antique piano to the collage of art on the easel that we’d love to sift through, the vibes of this loft are right up our alley. Did we mention that the owner, who lives next door to this space, is an art historian? We can’t think of a better person to give us recommendations on the area.
