The station is located in Don Luigi Sturzo Street, near Sigmund Freud Square, within the territory of the municipality of Milan. This is an underground station. It is located under Milano Porta Garibaldi railway station.
Garibaldi is the only underground station in Milan, along with Cascina Gobba, to have four tracks: the two stations are used for normal links to the trains, while the other two, located outside the docks waiting, are not used, one of them being partially removed.
This peculiarity is due to the never built project of expeditious lines of Brianza, a group of light rail lines that were supposed to replace the trams trunk of Brianza, reaching two of the four tracks at the station of Garibaldi, allowing a good exchange.
