How to get to Milan

Milan is serviced by two air travel hubs, with Linate airport located just seven kilometres to the east and Malpensa airport sitting 50km north west of the city. The former is the smaller of the Milan airports, while the latter is much larger and more regularly used by tourists taking holidays to Milan. Busses and shuttle services to and from both airports operate regularly from the bus station which sits close by the main Stazione Porta Garibaldi rail hub. The choice of car hire from Milan Airport gives you the option to make your own way in to the city.

What to do in Milan

Milan is known as a city fuelled by fashion and many of the world's largest labels make their home here, including Prada, Armani and Versace, so holidays in Milan are perfect for performing a bit of high class retail therapy. The beautiful cathedral and La Scala concert hall, where operas are performed on a regular basis, contribute to the cultural value of the city, and a diverse array of bars and clubs spice up the night life and ensure cheap holidays in Milan have wide appeal.

Where to stay in Milan

Many Milan holidays are defined by the accommodation, as you can find a number of modern, high class hotels which are built with a style that is typical of the city without detracting from its historical ambience. Prices start low and during the hottest period of the year in August Milan flights may seem even more attractive as many locals leave the city to escape the heat.
