Getting to Milan
Milan can be reached via 3 airports:
Linate - This is Milan's "city" airport with flights covering most Western European capitals. The airport is connected to the city via a public bus service that will take you to Piazza San Babila. From there you will be able to access the MM1 line. The same distance by taxi will cost you about 20-30€ depending on traffic.
Malpensa - Milan's intercontinental airport is located quite far from the city centre, which makes taxi rides quite expensive (95€). However, the airport is also connected via the Malpensa Express train to Milan's most important train stations (Centrale, Porta Garibaldi and Cadorna).
Orio al Serio - A low-cost airline hub located in the outskirts of Bergamo. The airport is connected to Milan via several coach services that will take you to Milan's Central Station for 5-10€.
Should you prefer to use a limousine service to and from any of the above-mentioned airports, we have arranged for preferrential conditions with FGF Car Service that make them more convenient than the equivalent taxi ride. To book a transfer, please contact Mr. Fabio Fulici at specifying "Milan JBSB 2019" in the e-mail subject.
Milan is well-connected to several Swiss cities via Eurostar trains. The trains terminate at and depart from Milan Central Station and can be very convenient if booked in advance.

Getting around Milan
Milan has an extensive public transportation network. If you're coming for the weekend you should consider buying a daily or 3-day ticket (respectively 7,00€ and 12,00€). These tickets can be purchased at most news stands as well as at the vending machines located in each metro station. NB: remember to buy tickets before boarding the bus/tram to avoid paying hefty fines.
Daily passes can be used on all types of public transport including buses, metro and trams.
