When to go

Everybody heads out to the lakes in high summer, when the city can feel deserted. The best times are the January sales, or spring, when it’s warm and buzzing.

Getting there

  • Planes

    There are two airports: a taxi from Malpensa to Milan's city centre costs around €75; the fare from Linate is about €20.
  • Trains

    The Malpensa Express runs every 30 mins, connecting Terminal 1 and Milan’s Cadorna railway station in about 40 minutes.
  • Automobiles

    A car can be a good idea, especially in summer when the lakes beckon – the closest is only 40 minutes away. Driving in Milan is not too challenging.
  • Taxis

    Taxis are dear, and you’ll need to ring one, or find an elusive cab rank.
