I will be relocating to Milan next month and I'm currently in the process of shortlisting accommodation options for my stay here.
Of the properties that I've looked at, 2 areas came to mind. First is the area around QT8, I've found a trilocale that is pretty near the metro station (via Levanto) and it seems pretty quiet and nice. However, I will like to hear your local advice if there are any safety and security concerns with living in the QT8 area.
The second area I found is the apartments near Largo Zanuso which is pretty near a huge shopping complex.
