We are close to the tube that stops (red line) at the Duomo and the Castello Sforzesco. Also less than 100 mt. it is possible to catch the Sightseeing bus tour around the city.

The New York Times recently wrote an article about Milan with regards to the World Expo:
There are a number of places around Milan that are worth visiting on a day trip such as Bergamo, a medieval hilltop town that has been highly influenced by Venice style, the town of Pavia which was the capital of the Italian Kingdom, the town of Mantua which boasts a rich architectural and artistic heritage left by the Gonzaga family and makes it one of the main Italian and European Renaissance centres, but also towns like Verona, Turin, Genoa to name but a few all to visit on a day trip.
The Italian lakes are only one hour by train and they are definitely a must-see in northern Italy.
We also have a small flat (sleeps four) in the village of Lido Adriano near the seaside, in the Italian Region of Emilia Romagna. This is a good base to visit the wonderful city of Ravenna (United Nations World Heritage List for its ancient churches and mosaics), enjoy a number of theme parks in the nearby and spend a few days on the beach.
