Milan Train Station Dangerous?

Jump to last reply

Hi All - My mother and I (she is 69, I am 42) will be traveling in mid-September of this year from Lucerne to Venice via train. I understand that we will need to change trains in Milan (and in Arth Goldau also, I believe). The more I read about the Milan train station, the worse it gets! It has even been suggested that I change my route so as to avoid Milan altogether. What do you all think? I am a pretty independent person and I'd like to think I'd keep my wits about me and not put my purse/wallet/money out on display for all the pickpockets and scam artists to see. Just wondered about everyone's thoughts on this. This stop in Milan would be in the mid morning to lunchtime, not during the night, and on a weekday if that makes a difference. Any other travel suggestions from Lucerne to Venice would be appreciated. Thanks very much.
