Renting in Milan Renting in Milan Like most large European cities, renting in the center of Milan can be very competitive and often expensive. Unlike some European cities, you will generally not be able to rent an apartment without seeing it in person first, so book a appointments when you arrive. It is not common for local agents to speak other languages than their native tongue, so if your Italian is not very strong, try to take along an Italian-speaker, a phrase book, or a translation app on your phone. Useful accommodation sites • Idealista • milano.bakeca • Immobiliare • Subito Short term lets There are some international websites offering apartments for short term lets. On these websites you rent directly from the owners, no agency involved, and you pay the booking fee to the website: ApartmentsApart & Airbnb. Renting directly form the owner You can find also find an apartment to rent in Milan directly from the owner, so you don't need to pay the agency commission nor the website booking fee. To do this, you can just walk along the street in the city area you want to live and you may see a lot of "for rent" posters on the buildings doors and gates. They are always just in Italian, so "for rent" it's "affittasi" ("vendesi" means "on sale"). If there is no agency logo, it's usually a private and you can call the phone number written on the poster.
