Milan

Getting there

By plane

The two city airports, Malpensa (MXP) and Linate (LIN), and the nearby Orio al Serio Airport (BGY) make it possible to each Milan from all corners of the globe. The airports are connected to the railway stations by bus services. Malpensa is approximately 45 minutes from the Central Station, with Linate around 20 minutes away and Orio al Serio approximately 40. The latter is the hub for low-cost flights, especially RyanAir, while the other two accommodate arrivals and departures by the main flag carriers and other low-cost operators.

By train

The central station is connected to major cities throughout Italy and in other European nations, with trains operating regional, Intercity and Eurostar services, along with the Frecciabianca, Frecciargento, Frecciarossa and Italo Treno high-speed trains.

By car

You can reach Milan using the A1 Florence-Bologna highway, the A7 from Genoa, the A4 Turin-Venice, and the A8 Autostrada dei Laghi.

Getting around

By bus

The public bus service (ATM) covering Milan is characterised by the presence of an extensive transport network involving both road and rail.

By metro

Four lines are currently available, with a fifth under construction. The metro makes it possible to move easily throughout the city and in some areas of the hinterland, by means of suburban rail services.

By boat

It is possible to travel by boat along the various canals. Through the redevelopment project for Expo, the Dockyard was brought back to life several years ago and is now once again at the heart of Milanese life.

By bicycle

Tourists can use BikeMi, the low-cost bike-sharing service, developed by the Milan municipality and Atm, which makes it possible to travel around the city with complete freedom. The hire points are located at various points in the city.

By car/scooter and taxi

There are lots of car-sharing options, including Car2go, Enjoy and E-vai (for electric cars). Enjoy in Milan also operates a scooter-sharing service. The use of private cars is discouraged in the central city. Taxis and Ubers are widespread.

When to go

Spring

After the cold winter, in April and, especially, May the days become a lot more interesting – cocktails, amazing views, strolls around the city, exhibitions for all tastes.

Summer

The Idroscalo artificial lake, the huge open-air cinema, the best live concerts of the year, the nightlife in the canals and the Dockyard – there are so many reasons to go to Milan in summer.

Autumn

This is the rainy period, but the charm of the changing colours of the plant life and, above all, the shows of Fashion Week generally provide sufficient reason to visit the city in September and October.

Winter

The markets, the lovely charm of the snow, the skating risks and the myriad incredible bookshops and cultural events that are typical of this period.

What to bring

Bring an umbrella, because Milan is a fairly rainy city, especially in Autumn. Make sure to pack something elegant, for the kingdom of fashion, whether for a dinner or a cocktail. A scarf, which can function as a comfortable and attractive garment and, at the same time, can be used to provide protection against temperature changes.

Local Cuisine

Risotto alla Milanese: simple ingredients for an absolute must in the Milanese tradition famous throughout the world. Chopped onion and rice toasted with white wine, cooked slowly in beef broth. Creamed with butter and parmigiano cheese and finally saffron, the precious golden powder that gives the speciality its distinctive colour. Served soft.

Cassoeula: typical dish made of savoy cabbage, tomato, onion, celery and sliced carrots, black pepper and pork of all forms: ribs, sausages, tails and rind.

Ossobuco and Cotoletta: two classic meat dishes ‘alla milanese’, the first apparently simple and the second complex (but it only seems that way). Loved by all including children, a true Milanese cutlet is not for everyone. The choice of the meat and the bread coating is fundamental. Ossobuco is harder – here the slice of veal is served with bone marrow, to be eaten with a teaspoon or, according to tradition, using a marrow spoon ironically called an ‘esattore’.

Panettone: the Christmas dessert par excellence is the very Milanese panettone, a bakery product of uncertain and ancient origin enriched with raisins and candied fruit.

Fun facts

The true Milanese aperitif as a ritual loved by men and women alike was created using bitters by Gaspare Campari. In this city, Negroni was invented through a mistake by a barman in the 1960s, who made it with sparkling wine instead of gin.

At number 10 via Serbelloni, there is a bronze intercom in the shape of an ear. The house, in liberty style and unknown by many, has been nicknamed the Ca’ dell’Oreggia. The strange intercom, sculpted in 1930 by Adolfo Wildt, has not been operational for some time and has become a slight source of mystery. The legend goes that if you whisper a wish into the ear, it will come true.
