We're a family of three and we'll be arriving in Milan (Linate) from Paris via EasyJet in April 2014. We'll just stay for 2 nights in Milan to see the Duomo and the Last Supper, and as base for a daytrip to the Swiss Alps. We'll then take a train to Venice and stay there for 2 nights.
So our itinerary in Milan might look like this:
Paris-Milan ETA 12:25 p.m.
Duomo (day and night view for photography)
Daytrip to Swiss Alps
Train to Venice
So based on this, what's the best area to stay in at? Near the Central Station or near the Duomo?
