Best Airbnbs in Milan

Elegant home near the Duomo

Milan’s Duomo, a tremendously gorgeous gothic cathedral, is a necessary sight for all visitors to the city. This roomy, polished home is just a few minutes away on foot. Surrounded by shops, cafés and delightful restaurants, the spot sleeps seven, has five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Quirky apartment near Teatro degli Arcimboldi

This place has some weird and wonderful decor, and whatever your thoughts are on zebra pelts and the like, the comments by left previous guests attest to the hospitality and helpfulness of the hosts. Another home in the Bicocca area, this is close to the world-famous opera house Teatro Degli Arcimboldi. Plus there’s space for six guests so you can bring your entire flock (including any furry friends, big bonus).

All-white canalside apartment

Wow! This apartment, in a 200-year-old building, is so brilliantly white that you might want to put some shades on. It’s also located by a naviglio, one of the canals built in Renaissance-era Milan that’s every bit as sweet as you imagine (make sure you check out the host’s pics, they’re terrific!).

Studio with terrace in Brera

Definitely one to consider if you want to soak up the Italian sunshine during your stay in Milan. Crisp and calming, the understated decor is fantastic if you’re in need of some rejuvenation. This one-bed studio has a large terrace that overlooks its leafy neighbourhood of Brera: an area known for its chic fashion, shopping and al fresco dining.

Another property in Brera, this is a studio with a terrace and amazing. It's located a short walk from Duomo, the Parco Sempione, the Sforzesco and Corso Como. A one bedroom apartment in the perfect location, it will feel like a home away from home, with a fully equipped kitchen, a dedicated workspace, a TV and more.

Design loft in Navigli

A truly lovely choice for those who like to stay in places with a bit of clutter and lived-in personality. This one-bed loft is another property based on the Navigli, this time near the Porta Ticinese, in an area rich in nightlife. The host mentions he’s an art historian – so make sure you get in touch ahead of your stay for cultural recommendations.

Family-friendly apartment near the canal

This bright, cheerful-looking two-bed apartment looks like a good choice for families visiting Milan. While it’s near the Navigli, and so not far from the buzz of canalside bars and restaurants, it’s also away from car traffic and so pretty tranquil as a whole. Bellissimo!

Romantic and chic, you’ll find this Airbnb just 200 meters from central station and you can get to Duomo in only 10 minutes, and Navigli in 20. This apartment is big enough to host 3 guests, featuring 1 double bed, 1 single sofa bed and bathroom. Not only is the location perfect, but this apartment has a lovely balcony overlooking the Milan skyline and a fully equipped kitchen to make you feel right at home.

This luxury apartment is located in a very desired location right in the centre of Milan, and just a two minute walk from Milan Central station. Enjoy this modern and refined space with a beautiful balcony you can eat your italian breakfast on. As well as complimentary coffee and a fully equipped kitchen. This gorgeous apartment may not be the cheapest on the list but if you're travelling with someone else it can become much more easily affordable.
