AIRPORTS

  • MALPENSA AIRPORT
    Malpensa airport is Milan’s international hub and is located between Milano and Varese, about 50 km away from the city centre.  We recommend getting to/from Malpensa by train or bus.
    The Malpensa Express train connects the airport with the Cadorna station in 40 minutes and runs every 30 minutes.  One-way standard fare costs €11.
    Alternatively the Malpensa shuttle is a bus service that runs every 20 minutes and connects the airport to Stazione Centrale in about 50 minutes.  One-way standard fare costs €7.5.
    A taxi run ends up beng fairly expensive at a fixed price of €85 one-way.

  • LINATE AIRPORT

    This airport is located very near the city centre and serves primarily Alitalia and the European traffic.
    From Linate, the bus 73 reaches the centre of Milan in 25 minutes (tickets can be bought on board).  Alternatively a taxi ride is definitely the fastest way to get to the city centre and, given the airport’s proximity to Milan, not a very expensive one.

TAXI

In Milan it is not cost-effective to use taxis, especially during rush-hours.  As opposed to what happens in other cities, taxis usually don’t stop in the street: it is necessary to go to a marked taxi stop or call one by phone.
Taxi Blu phone: 02.4040
Yellow Taxi Multiservice phone: 02.6969
Radio Taxi: 02.8585

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Milan’s public transport runs from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight.  It reaches every corner of the city and comprises a thick network of surface transportation (including buses, filobuses and the old-fashioned, still working trams) as well as an efficient underground network. 
The same ticket can be used on all public transport run by the ATM company, and it can be purchased in every newsstand and tobacconist’s shop (marked by the T sign for “tabacchi”).  Inside the tube are automatic ticket machines.  Tickets cost 1 euro, they must be authenticated at the beginning of the journey (inside a bus/tram or entering the tube) and they last 75 minutes, during which it is also possible to switch means of transportation. (solo x i mezzi di superficie?)

ATM also runs an on-call night bus service which, booked in advance, will pick you up where requested and take you to your chosen destination.  This service is available between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m., except for Christmas day and May 1st.  Bookings are taken at the following number:

Call center 02.48.03.48.03, daily between 1 p.m. til 2 a.m.

BYCICLE

Milan is almost all flat and therefore perfect for a bike ride.  More and more Milanesi opt for this eco-friendly mean of transportation to commute to work or for a Sunday ride.  Bikes are available for rent or bike-sharing.
