Trains to Milan Find train times and tickets

Milan is Italy’s second-largest city. But locals are quick to tell visitors that Milan is in many respects the country’s first city. It’s certainly the commercial centre of Italy and the powerhouse of the Italian economy. This is a city that drips style and most visitors from northern Europe find themselves feeling conspicuously underdressed.

Milan’s tourist hub is the Piazza del Duomo, from where most of the principal sights are within walking distance. Explore the opulent Galleria Vittorio Emanuele (the antidote to the modern shopping mall), and make time for the city's magnificent parks (such as the Giardini Pubblici).

The main railway station for the city is Milano Centrale, a short distance north-east of the city centre. This is the departure point for most services including the night trains to Munich, Vienna and Paris. But there are important trains that leave from other Milan stations. For example, all daytime TGV services to Paris depart from Milano Porta Garibaldi. Since the start of 2016, all Italo high-speed services (to Rome, Naples, Bologna, Florence and Turin), which previously ran from Porta Garibaldi now leave instead from Centrale; many also serve Rogoredo station. The weekly train to Poland and Russia serves only Rogoredo. The express trains to Milan Malpensa airport depart from yet another station called Cadorna. In a nutshell, it’s complicated. But all these stations are well connected by the Milan metro. Check your Milan station details carefully when you book your train.

Milan has an excellent range of national and international rail links. High-speed trains leave every hour for Bologna, Florence and Rome. There are hourly departures for Verona and Venice. Milan also has direct trains to Genoa and the Ligurian coast – with three trains each day continuing west along the coast to the Côte d’Azur. These services to the French Riviera (operated by Thello) give useful direct links to Nice, Monaco and Marseille. There are excellent services across the Alps with direct daytime trains to Chambéry, Zurich, Geneva and Basel.
