Planning a Trip

Trains arrive and depart about every half hour to and from Venice (3 hours),hourly from and to rome (5 hours) and Florence (3 hours) at the central station (Stanzione Centrale). a vast structure is about half hours walk northeast from the central of city with easy connection with


, a vast structure of Fascist- of the center, with easy connections to Piazza del Duomo by Metro, tram, and bus. The station stop on the Metro is Centrale F.S.; it is only 10 minutes (and 1€/$1.30) away from the Duomo stop, in the heart of the city. If you want to see something of the city en route, take the no. 60 bus from the station to Piazza del Duomo. If you walk (a good half-hour), follow Via Pisani through the district of high-rise office buildings that have sprung up around the station in the past several decades to the equally cheerless Piazza della Repubblica, and from there continue south on busy Via Turati and Via Manzoni to Piazza del Duomo.

Chances are you will arrive at Stazione Centrale, but some trains serve Milan’s other train stations: Cadorna (with service to and from Como and Malpensa airport, for example), Stazione Lambrate (with service to and from Bergamo, and other points east), and Porta Garibaldi (with service to and from Lecco and other points north). Conveniently, all three of these stations, along with Stazione Centrale, are on the same subway line: Linea 2, the green one.

By Bus — Given Milan’s excellent rail links with other cities in Lombardy and throughout Italy, it’s usually unnecessary to travel by long-distance buses, which tend to take longer and cost more than the trains do. If you choose to travel by intercity bus, expect to arrive at and depart from Autostradale, in front of the Castello Sforzesco on Piazza Castello (Metro: Cairoli). The ticket office is open daily 6:30am to 9:30pm (tel. 166-845-010 is a special toll number for which you are charged .30€/40¢ a minute). A few common runs are the 12 daily buses to and from Turin (2 1/2 hr.) and, for Milanese ski and outdoor enthusiasts, the two daily buses (more in the winter) to and from Aosta (allow 3 1/2 hr.).

I really hope you can help me! I need to book a trip for my parents

from Milan to Lourdes in October.

They are both very sick and I see there are many trains to change.

I managed to find a direct train from Milan central to Paris Montparnasse and a Paris gare de Lyon to Lourdes but I can’t find scheduels for Montparnasse to Gare de Lyon, plus,

my father had serious movement troubles and I wished I could find a shorter or more direct way of getting there.
He suffers from a rare syndrome and cannot take planes..

PLease, anyone can help me?

Bus? Sep 20, 2008

Hi, have you considered a trip by bus? It must be less time-consuming –

 and probably cheaper – than passing from Paris.

 I think you can find specialised tour operators offering a direct

Milan-Lourdes route. Good luck!

Milano – Nizza – Toulouse – Lourdes Sep 20, 2008

Hi Francesca,

A few years ago I went to Lourdes with my mum.

We took a train in Cannes in the morning and arrived in toulouse at 4PM where we took a train to Lourdes.

Maybe you should check whether your parents can go from Milano to Nizza

 and take the train for Toulouse from there. If I remember well,

there were several trains a day going from Toulouse to Lourdes.

UNITALSI Sep 20, 2008

Hi Francesca

I’m so sorry to hear about your parents.

Here’s the link of a Milan based company that connects Lombardy to Lourdes.

It’s called Unitalsi (Unione Nazionale Italiana Trasporto Ammalati

a Lourdes e Santuari Internazionali).
Phone 02.4121176

This is the section for Lombardy:

via Labus, 15
MILANO 20147 (MI)
tel. 02 – 41 21 176

I really hopes it helps. I will keep you in my thoughts.


By Car — Milan is well served by Italy’s superhighway (autostrada) system. The A1 links Milan with Florence and Rome (Florence is a little over 3 hr. away by car, Rome is a little under 6 hr.), and the A4 connects Milan with Verona and Venice to the east and Turin to the west (Venice is about 2 1/2 hr. from Milan by car; Turin is a little over 1 hr.). Driving and parking in Milan are not experiences to be relished, and much of the central city is closed to traffic. Many hotels make parking arrangements for guests; ask when you reserve a room.

By Plane — Both of Milan’s airports are operated by SEA (tel. 02-7485-2200;

Milan Malpensa, 45km (28 miles) west of the center, is Milan’s major international airport and an important hub for southern Europe. When it was unveiled in 2000 it was crowned worst major airport in Europe by the Continent’s official oversight committee in terms of flight delays and convenience, and while many of the kinks have been worked out since then, it’s home to Alitalia and its strike-prone staff. (For general information about Malpensa, call tel. 02-7485-2200 or 02-7680-0613.) Conveniently, a 40-minute express train heads half-hourly to Cadorna train station, which is, frankly, just as central as the so-named Stazione Centrale. Then there are the Malpensa shuttle buses, which will take you directly to Centrale. The express train (tel. 02-9619-2301) costs 5.50€ ($7.15), while the bus, known as the Malpensa Shuttle (tel. 02-5858-3185), costs 4.50€ ($5.85) — and runs two to three times per hour. The buses may be cheaper, but you run the risk of hitting the legendary traffic of the Northern ‘burbs. Speaking of which, the trip into town by taxi costs a wallet-stripping 75€ ($98) but it’s the best choice when you are running late and it’s not rush hour, or else after 11pm when it is indeed the only choice.

Milan Linate, only 7km (4 1/4 miles) east of the center, handles some European flights and most domestic flights. Call tel. 02-7485-2200 for information. STAM buses (tel. 02-717-100) run from Linate to Stazione Centrale every 20 minutes from 7am to 7pm and every half-hour from 7 to 9pm; allow 20 minutes for the trip. Purchase tickets (2€/$2.60) on the bus or from the Malpensa Shuttle terminal at the east end of Stazione Centrale. You can also take a city bus, no. 73, to and from Linate, from the southeast corner of Piazza San Babila, a few blocks east of the Duomo (1€/$1.30). The trip into town by taxi costs about 18€ to 20€ ($23-$26).

Air Pullman buses (tel. 02-5858-3185) also connect Malpensa and Linate every 90 minutes from 6am to 8pm. The trip takes 1 1/4 hours and costs 8€ ($10).

Budget-minded flyers should consider a third option, Orio Al Serio ( Located just outside Bergamo and about an hour from Milan, Orio al Serio is a hub for discounter Ryanair and a number of other budget airlines.

Visitor Information

The main Azienda di Promozione Turistica del Milanese (APT) tourist office is in the Palazzo del Turismo at Via Marconi 1 on the Piazza del Duomo (tel. 02-7252-4301; Hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 8pm, Saturday from 9am to 1pm and 2 to 7pm, Sunday from 9am to 1pm and 2 to 5pm. There is also an office in Stazione Centrale (tel. 02-7252-4360), open Monday to Friday 8am to 7pm, Saturday 9am to 6pm, and Sunday 9am to 12:30pm and 1:30 to 6pm.

These offices issue maps, museum guides, hotel and restaurant listings, and a wealth of other useful information, including the free Milano Mese. The free monthly events brochure Hello Milano ( and expatriate monthly EasyMilano all have listings of museum exhibitions, performances, and other events.

Bus ToursCitySightseeing Milano (tel. 02-867-131; has a choice of two 90-minute bus tours of Milan’s major sights, with buses leaving every 30 minutes from in front of the Castello, daily 9:30am to 6:30pm. Each tour costs 20€ ($26) and commentary is available in English.

City Layout — Think of Milan as a series of concentric circles radiating from the Piazza del Duomo at the center. Within the inner circle, once enclosed by the city walls, are many of the churches, museums, and shops that will consume your visiting hours. For a general overview of the lay of the land, obtain one of the serviceable maps, with indices, that the tourist offices provide for free.

The city’s major neighborhoods encircle the hub, Piazza del Duomo. Looking west from the Duomo, you can see the imposing Castello Sforzesco at one end of the well-heeled Magenta neighborhood. You can walk to the Castello in about 15 minutes by following first Via Orefici to Piazza Cordusio and from there Via Dante. The other major tourist draw in Magenta is the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie; to reach it, you’ll leave Via Dante at Via Meravigli, which becomes Corso Magenta and leads to the church (total walking time from Piazza del Duomo to the church is about 20 min.).

Heading north from the Piazza del Duomo, walk through the glass-enclosed shopping center (the world’s first), the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Emerging from the northern end of the Galleria, you’ll be just steps away from Piazza della Scala and Milan’s famous opera house. A 5-minute walk northeast along Via Manzoni takes you to Via Montenapoleone and the city’s high-fashion shopping district, the epicenter of Italian design. A walk of about 10 minutes north of Piazza della Scala along Via Brera brings you into the atmospheric Brera neighborhood — once home to the city’s brothels, which has gentrified over the last 3 or 4 decades — where cobblestone streets and old palazzi surround the city’s major art collection, the Pinacoteca di Brera.

Another neighborhood to set your sights on is Ticinese/Navigli, usually referred to by the last word in that combination, which translates as “canals.” Beyond the central city and due south of Piazza del Duomo, the Navigli’s old quays follow what remains of an elaborate canal system, designed in part by Leonardo da Vinci, which once laced through the city. The moody charm of these waterways is not lost on young Milanese who are converting old lofts and moving into former quarters of the working classes. The attendant bars, shops, and restaurants on the ground floors have appeared to serve their needs, making this a great neighborhood to head to for dinner and then stay for the nightlife (it’s also the only bit of town open through Aug, when cars are banned and all the eateries and bars move tables outside to fill the boisterous quays). You can walk to the Navigli in about 30 minutes from Piazza del Duomo by following Via Torino southwest to Corso Porta Ticinese, but a Metro ride to Porta Genova will get you there more quickly.

Despite Milan’s size and sprawl, many of its museums, churches, and other sights are within easy walking distance of one another in the vicinity of the Duomo and Castello Sforzesco.

Getting Around

An extensive subway system (Metropolitana Milanese), trams, and buses make it very easy to move around Milan. The Metro closes at midnight; buses and trams run all night. Tickets good for one Metro ride (or 1 1/4 hr. of surface transportation) cost 1€ ($1.30). You can also purchase a ticket good for unlimited travel for 1 day (3€/$3.90) or 2 days (5.50€/$7.15). Tickets are available at Metro stations and at newsstands. Stamp your ticket when you board a bus or tram — you can be slapped with a hefty fine if you don’t. For information about Milan public transportation, visit the ATM information office in the Duomo Metro stop, open Monday through Friday 8:30am to 8pm, weekends 9am to 1pm and 2 to 7pm (until 5pm Sun; tel. 02-7252-4301 or 800-808-181;

 Nice to Lourdes by train? 
Feb 18, 2006, 6:38 PM


I’m just wondering, can we make it a day trip from Nice to Lourdes? How far by train is it between the 2 cities? If possible, we’d love to take a day trip to Lourdes if we can from Nice-we’ll be in Nice for a whole week.

I’ve been to both Lourdes and Nice, but not from one to the other. Check out flights from Nice to Toulousse to save time, since a trip to Lourdes is more like a 3 day trip, even by air. Far from a tourist trap for most visitors who went home cured of previously known or unkown health conditions (either incurable or costing thousands to cure back home)and who don’t mind leaving behind a fraction of their toursit budget for generally underpriced food and accomodations and the company of some of the friendliest people in France or anywhere in the world. If you’d like to possibly live longer and healthier while appreciating Lourdes and its picturesque setting next to snow capped mountain peaks and spring fed rivers, visit Lourdes this trip or the next. A thankful, healthier Lourdes visitor.

The Navigli of Leonardo da Vinci

Discover the Navigli of Leonardo da VinciThe the very first traces of the idea to make Milan accessible from the sea are lost in the chronicles of time- occouring far before the design and construction of the first artificial navigable canal had begun.

Even in antiquity many of the water-ways that encircled the city had deviations that deposited water directly in the city; however, none of the rivers or torrents were large enough to sufficiently provide the kind of water supply that the city desperately needed.

The Navigli of Milan are the artificial canals constructed between 1179 (Naviglio Grande) and the 16th century (Naviglio Martesana) with the purpose of making Milan accessible from Ticino and Adda.
