Milan train station. Baggage storage?

We go Florence to Milan for a night train to Arles France. Storage there for large bags?
Is station close to anywhere great for dinner or to see some sights? Have 3 hrs between train.

Yes Victoria, but there can sometimes be lengthy lines to leave or claim your baggage, so be sure to leave enough time. And note that the storage fee is €6 per bag.

What train do you have reserved? I don't believe there is any overnight train from Milan in the direction of Arles without leaving you sleeping in a train station for the majority of the night.

There is a bag storage office at Milano Centrale. When you leave your bag, note their opening hours for pick up. When I stayed near there, I enjoyed dinner at La Buca at Via Napo Torriani 28; opens at 19:00 as do most other restaurants.

You can take the Milan Metro four stops on Line 3 (yellow) to the spectacular cathedral (Duomo) and adjacent Galleria shopping zone; beware of pickpockets on the metro and the Duomo square. Going up on the roof is cool.
