Supermarkets nearby Milano Centrale FS
As rents are expensive near this historic landmark and this important travel hub for train travel in and to Italy, you won’t find a supermarket right next to the station. But nearby. Just about 8 minutes or 600 metres by foot, I can recommend the Pam Local at Via Fabio Filzi 12 in 20124 Milano. It’s a small city-supermarket offering everything for daily life, as well as all the basic neccessities you will need for a full travel day. Otherwise, there is a budget supermarket as well nearby the main train station, a Penny Market Express. It’s located at Via Ruggero Boscovich 18 and open seven days a week. Find both supermarkets easily on Google Maps: Pam Local, Penny Express
What to shop at Milan Centrale Train Station
If you fancy buying something small by Victoria’s Secret at the Train Station, you will be happy to learn about the VS shop at the Station. However, that’s usually not something you’re looking forward to buying at a Train Station. Typically you want to purchase something to eat, drink or a small souvenir such as a postcard at max. When leaving the station through one of the main entrances/exits, you will find a McDonalds/McCafe Restaurant right to your left at the adjacent building to the big square. You can buy bottled water, packed snacks, hot beverages, cakes as well as typical fast food (check out the italian McDonalds Prices here in this blogpost). Inside the station I can recommend the Juice Shop on the ground level towards the gates (from the square on your way to the Milano Centrale luggage deposit), or Rossopomodoro at the far-most left corner of the upper level right before the train tracks. Whenever I have arrived/departed at Milano Centrale Train Station, every time I was stopping by the Rossopomodoro takeaway shop. Usually every time I get their Cornetto and Espresso offer for 2,20 Euro, including one Espresso and a Croissant of your choice (unfilled or filled with crema/marmellata). Otherwise, the price for one Espresso is 1 Euro, what a stellar price! For a train station, nonetheless!
