Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Empatia goes to show how much you can do, even with a small space. The flat’s very bright, and when you’re inside, it’s clear how much work Marta’s put into the place – she designed it all herself. While there are bright colours all over the place, they’re set against fairly neutral backgrounds, so never feel overwhelming. We particularly like the creativity shown with the balcony – repurposing the space like that takes a fair amount of imagination and it pays off.

The Plum Promise

  • No time for average – We reject thousands of homes worldwide, so you don't have to.
  • Hosts we know – With track records of high-quality hosting.
  • Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot – Exceptional service before, during and after your stay.

Home truths

    There's no lift so you have to climb a lot of stairs to reach the flat

    The TV is very small – hardly a home cinema experience

    Getting to the balcony requires a little agility to climb out the window

    There's no washing machine or tumble dryer

Local guide

About Chinatown

Milan’s mainly pedestrianised Chinatown is the oldest and biggest Chinese district in Italy. The first settlements date back to the 1920s, when the first Chinese from the Zhejiang region (near Shanghai ) travelled to Milan to work in the silk industry, increasingly expanding their presence throughout the decades. Milan’s Chinatown might not have a typical access arch like the Chinatowns of London or in Paris, but it shares a lot of what those ones have - great food and lanterns galore! It's also an easy walk to the historical centre - only 20 minutes to Brera, for example.
