Where to stay in Milan?

<b>Where</b> to stay in Milan?

Milan does not really have a gay area. The gay places are located in several areas of the city. We recommend taking a hotel right in the center, from there you can walk to all sight seeing and shopping and restaurants during the day, and in evening explore the gay places by public transport or taxi.
