I found the flat very easy to find, right next to Gambara tube station which is only 4 stops away from the city centre. The flat is clean and kept and was very nicely supplied with cakes, yogurt, teas and several bottles of water for breakfast. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook a gourmet diner! The bedroom is spacious and full of interesting books if you fancy polishing up your Italian. The flat is equipped with heating and cooling so you rarely feel uncomfortable even in the middle of winter. The area around is very quiet with some restaurants and a small supermarket nearby and if that wasn't enough there is a 24 hour supermarket 8 minutes' walk from the flat. Serena's dad, Cesare, was very kind to show the area around the flat and giave me all the neccassary info on how to get to what I wanted to see in Milan.
