Getting there & away
Bus stops are scattered throughout the city, so unless you know exactly which one you need, it’s simpler to travel by train.
For many national and international destinations, buses (operated by numerous different companies) leave from the bus station (02 63 79 01; Piazza Sigmund Freud) opposite the main entrance to the Stazione Porta Garibaldi. Eurolines (02 637 90 299; Piazza Sigmund Freud) has a ticketing desk here.
Most European and other international flights use Malpensa airport (www.malpensa.com), 50km northwest of the city. The majority of domestic and a handful of European flights use the more convenient Linate airport (www.sea-aeroportimilano.it), 7km east of the city centre. For flight information, call 02 748 52 200 (both Malpensa and Linate airports).
An increasing number of budget airlines also use Orio al Serio airport, near Bergamo.
