Trains to Milan

Italy’s northern transport hub, Milan, is also its undisputed capital of business, fashion and design. Between them, Milan Centrale and its three other main terminus stations connect with the city’s Malpensa airport, the capital Rome, and international destinations as far afield as Paris.

Which is the main train station in Milan?

The hugely imposing Milan Centrale is a tourist attraction in itself, with a full range of cafes, shops and services in or around the station. Serving over 120 million passengers a year, the city’s main terminus offers regular services to and from the beautiful northern lakes, Venice, Turin, Bologna and Rome, as well as destinations in Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland. Porta Garibaldi (to the northwest), Cadorno (west) and Rogoredo (east) generally offer suburban and shorter intercity services.

Which train companies offer trains to Milan?

Most of the services to Milan are provided by the state-controlled operator Trenitalia, or are operated under the Trenord Regio livery for local and regional services in the northern Italian region. However, high-speed services from Turin, Bologna, Rome, Florence and Naples are operated by Italo, offering a fast and more luxurious service from these key national destinations. Note that some EuroCity international services are operated in association with Deutsche Bahn or the Swiss and Austrian national operators, OBB and SBB. Separate fares apply for the Malpensa Express from the airport.

Why travel by train to Milan?

Arriving in Milan’s spectacular main station – one of the railway wonders of the world - is one of the great experiences in European travel, bringing you within easy reach of the business and tourist centres of the city. The main terminus is also the perfect starting point for your onward journey: it offers an unparalleled route map of connections, from the picturesque Alpine lakes to the Mediterranean coast.

Before you travel to Milan by train - good to know!

Famous as the footballing home of Internazionale and AC Milan, the city is equally celebrated as the home of style and design, hosting European trade fairs in everything from fashion to furniture. Like many stops on the Italian art trail, it boasts Renaissance masterpieces, but also the Triennale museum and the country's biggest collection of futurist art at the Museo del Novecento. Visiting all the sights is easy with an extensive tram system and over 60 miles of Metro network.
