Traffic Information

Arriving at Malpensa Airport, the 31 mile drive into the city center will take around 50 minutes on the A8. Be aware, however, that this is a toll road so plan to accordingly. Linate Airport is closer and will take you 35 minutes on the A51 to travel the 10 miles into the city center. This road also has tolls but you can avoid them by taking Viale Enrico Forlanini, which takes roughly the same time. San Siro is just 3 miles northwest of the city center and will take around 20 minutes on the Via Monte Rosa.

The main routes around Milan include the A1, which takes you to Rome, Bologna, Florence and Naples. The A4 goes west to Turin and east to Venice and Verona. The A8 is the Highway to the Lakes and connects the city to Lake Como, Lake Maggiore and Lugano. These forementioned motorways are connected to the city by the A50, A51 and A52 ring roads. There is a congestion charge for entering the city center (the former walled area) but there is plenty of parking around the ring road network to avoid having to enter this area. Or you can wait until the congestion charge doesn't apply such as during the weekend or between the hours of 7:30 pm and 7:30 am. Your rental vehicle will take you to some wonderful sites around the city, including the fabulous Duomo, the Castello and the incredible shopping arcade of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.

Milan is a bustling city with a fantastic nightlife but the busy pace may have you yearning for a road trip to the countryside. The Valle del Ticino Park is a beautiful landscape just over 30 miles northwest of the city center. It is easily accessible along the A4 or A8 and offers relaxed picnic areas, cycling routes, hiking trails and an educational visitor center.


The Italian lakes are another stunning natural area and they are easily reached by rental car from Milan. A pleasant drive north from Milan along the A9, A8 and E35 will bring you to Como, the largest town in the area and the gateway to the entire lake region.

Business Travel

Milan is undoubtedly one of the most important financial and business centers in the world. The city's surrounds are Italy's most important industrial area and the Fiera Milano is the country's biggest trade fair. Fashion is a huge industry and this is reflected in the importance of Milan Fashion Week, which takes place twice a year in more than 40 locations throughout the city. The autumn/winter Fashion weeks for men and women are held in February or March in 2019 and the spring/summer event takes place in September or October each year. The city's fashion district, the Quadrilatero della Moda, is an incredible concentration of upscale labels. In addition to fashion, Milan is an important center for finance, design, healthcare, education and media.
