Top 20 Carrobbio, Milan vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
An neighbourhood with as rich a history as any, yet often overlooked in favour of more fashionable areas, Carrobbio combines the feeling of day-to-day Milanese life with a sense of past glories. It is tucked away in the south-west of the historic centre, between the Basilica di San Lorenzo and the ruins of the Roman Circus, which is fitting given its importance as one of the original districts of the city in antiquity. While it hasn’t yet undergone the gentrification that places like Navigli have seen in the past few years, it definitely shouldn’t be dismissed as a place to stay - crowds are much smaller than around the Duomo but the cathedral is still only ten minutes away on foot. One thing to know – this area’s quite central, and given Milan’s a busy city, this means that there’s always a fair amount of noise coming from the street, whether it be passing trams, roadworks, or something else. And as the city expands, there are going to be more and more infrastructure projects further out from the centre.
