How do I Get to Milan City Center (railway station Stazione Centrale)from Orio al Serio (Bergamo) Airport by rail? I couldn't find any railway station to hop on from the Orio al Serio Airport.

Pls help.

Hi,

if you want to travel by train, the closest station is Bergamo station. There is abus from the airport to bergamo station (see here http://www.atb.bergamo.it/) and then you can catch a train from Bergamo to Milan: see http://www.trenitalia.it for fares and timetables.

As an alternative, there is a direct bus from Orio al Serio airport to Milan. See here: http://www.sacbo.it/inglese/passeggeri/navettadaorio.asp?id_sot=40

Dear Lorenzo,

Thanks for the quick reply.
Meaning that, you still need to catch a bus from the airport to Bergamo Railway Station? Or is it a walking disctance to the railway station?

Actually I bought the Inter-Rail ticket where I can travel unlimited for 16days in Italy. That's why I tend to fully utilise this rail-pass.

I am planning 1 night in Milan, 2 nights in Venice, 3 nights in Florence, 3 nights in Rome and another night back in Milan before I depart home again.

Just a quick question, is it alright for a day trip to Pisa from Florence?

Cheers,
Nick ;)

Hi,

yes from airport to bergamo station you take a bus (see http://www.sacbo.it/inglese/index.asp if you need more details), it takes 10 minutes. I don't ***really*** think you can walk, it's some 5 km (ca 3 miles) ;)

And about Pisa: a day trip from Florence is a good choice and you have quite a lot of trains (always www.trenitalia.it).

Ciao!

Although the EuroStar Italia is a nice comfortable and fast train you have to pay a extra charge with interrail. I can't remember how much I had to pay on my train from Bologna to Bari ; thought it was something like 15 euro's..

If you are in Milan than do not forget to see San Siro Football Stadium ; it's great !!

Ciao,

Both sacbo and trenitalia have English versions of their site:
http://www.sacbo.it/inglese
http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html

About the bus, sorry, I didn't notice there's no translation in ATB web site .

It says: bus is number 1, every day from 6.00 to 24.00 every 30minutes; it takes 15 minutes from airport to railway station.
Ticket is eur 1,55 for one-way, you can find it at the Ticket Office at the airport. This is the link http://www.atb.bergamo.it/orarifermate/1____10000.PDF to with timetables from the airport to town.
I hope this can help.

Lorenzo

BjornParee,

Yeah that's the whole purpose why I go Milan... to hit on San Siro...Any clue how much is the ticket to tour the stadium?
Or is it easy to grab a ticket for a match? Coz' normally I don't see a full house San Siro stadium on the TV

I've been to Nou Camp... but too bad not for match just for Stadium Visit. I've been to Ajax's Stadium before, but got a bad experience when they lost to Feyenoord 1-2 at home and I was not allow to visit the stadium because there's a "riot" from the home fans and there were cops blocking all the entrance way... sigh...

Cheers,
Nick

Hello mate, i was a season ticket holder in Milan's end .The best way to get to San siro is to catch the metro and stop at Lotto station, from there you can take a bus( 5 minutes) or simply walk and follow the mainstream in the days of games. By walk is 15 minutes, but it's a nice walk.

I'm pretty much sure there is a direct bus from Orio al Serio to Milano Stazione centrale as i saw it the last time i was in Milan, look for it , it should be a 40-50 minutes journey.

Cheers
