To reach Milan you have many options available to you. If you arrive by plane, these are the three main Milanese airports:

  • Malpensa, the largest and most used, it has two different terminals. From Terminal 1, using the State Railways FS (€ 13 each way with journeys every 20/30 minutes), it is possible to quickly reach the Milan Central Station. From here on, we recommend using the subway to reach the centre. Also from terminal 1, there is the possibility of reaching the Milan Cadorna station always using the Malpensa Express service (13 euros per journey with runs every 30 minutes) by TreNord Railways and from there continue by foot to the centre. Should your flight land at Terminal 2, just take the shuttle to Terminal 1 and continue from there as just indicated.
  • Linate, this city airport is less used but is equally convenient for reaching the city centre. It is possible to use the public transport system (bus line 73) which for 1.50 euros takes you directly to Piazza San Babila.
  • Orio al Serio, the third and final airport, you can reach the Central Station with a shuttle bus service by Terravision (5euros each way) or by Orio Shuttle (4 € each way)

If you travel by train, as already mentioned before, you can reach Milan Central Station by high-speed rail and regional trains from all over Italy. From here on, we advise you to move by subway (1.50 euros for a ticket) to reach the centre in about 40 minutes. If you come from other Lombard provinces, Milan is connected via the Milan Cadorna railway hub run by Ferrovie Trenord. From here, reaching the centre is also very easy by foot.
