Best Location North of Milan?

Post Posted: Wed Mar 22, 2006 2:33 am

Moving with family (Three children, under six) to Italy later this year.

Have been for a visit and Monza looked like a good base, as I will be working in Cinisello (North of Milan).

Any advantages/disadvantages?

Would appreciate any comments

I now live at the top of Lake Como, having lived in Milano for a while.... the journey by car into Milano , passing Monza and Cinisello is a nightmare..... To get anywhere near the approaches to the A4 on the SS36 and then to the Sesto and Viale Zara area is horrific.... You would really need to avaoid the peak traffic times or live as near to your work in Cinisello as possible. Of course there are the 'back street' ways from Monza, but everyone else uses them as well.

To give you an example: from Baggio which is on the Tangenziale to the Viale Zara exit, then on to the SS36 to pass Monza, in non peak traffic will take me about 14 mins.... But in peak traffic, for the same journey a good time would be
90 - 100 minutes. It is exactly the same in the opposite direction....
