... and the place where you’ll find Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, one of the world’s greatest cathedrals and many of its finest art collections. And then there’s football, making Milan a contender for the most multi-talented of modern cities.

Arriving at Linate Airport

As well as being a European business capital and hosting several major international Fashion Weeks, Milan is the gateway to the Italian Lakes. Hence, it’s one of Italy’s best-connected cities.

The most convenient airport to arrive at is Milan Linate Airport, less than six miles (9km) east of the city. Number 73 buses run from Linate to the Duomo every 10 minutes, from 6am to just after 1pm, seven days a week. The journey time is roughly 20 minutes. ATM bus stops close to the terminal building are clearly signposted.

Private shuttle buses are also available between the airport and Milan Central Station, Fiera Milano City, Rho Exhibition Centre and Malpensa Airport north of the centre.

If you’d rather take a taxi, there’s a rank just outside Arrivals at Exit 5. Cars operate a fixed-fare system from the airport.

If you’re planning to explore outside Milan, it’s best to book car-hire in advance.
