Getting There & Away
Milan is one of Italy’s air transportation hubs, so you’ll be able to get a flight into Milan easily from just about anywhere on the planet. There are two airports in Milan, one of which is pretty far outside the city center and one that’s a short taxi ride from downtown. This is also a major rail hub – you’ll have no trouble getting a train to Milan from elsewhere in Europe.
Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) – Roughly 50km from San Siro, Malpensa has the most international traffic of any Italian airport. It’s a hub for Alitalia, Italy’s national airline, and is served by lots of other airlines from all over the world. There are several ways to get from Malpensa into the city, one of the easiest being the Malpensa Express train which stops at a big Metro hub in Milan – from there it’s a short trip to San Siro.
Milan Linate Airport (LIN) – Milan’s second airport is much smaller, but it’s only about 12km from San Siro and happens to be popular with many of Europe’s cheaper airlines, so it could be the economical choice. Public transport from Linate isn’t as plentiful as it is from Malpensa, but you can catch a bus into the city center and from there you can catch a tram or Metro to San Siro. And because it’s not so far from downtown, taking a taxi to San Siro probably wouldn’t totally break the bank, either.
Milan’s main train station, Stazione Centrale, is a major rail hub for the city and has regular arrivals from points all over Europe. It’s on the other side of town from San Siro, but thankfully there’s a Metro stop and a tram stop just outside the station and you can get on either one to take you to San Siro.
From Malpensa airport, you’ll want to head for the SS336 going south. Take exit toward the A4 following signs for Milano. Take the exit toward the A7/Genova/A1/Bologna, and then merge onto the A50. Take exit 3 for Settimo Milanese toward Settimo Milanese/Milano/San Siro, and then turn left onto Via Novara/SS11. You’ll take a slight left to geto onto Via Harar, and you’ll see the San Siro parking lot on your left – if you reach the stadium itself, you’ve gone too far (although if you’re particularly courageous & are feeling lucky, you can always hunt for street parking instead).
