How to Get to the Milan Expo

With 20 to 29 million visitors projected for Expo 2015 in Milan, one might be quick to think that the mere process of simply just getting there is slated to be a nightmare in and of itself. However, on the contrary, it’s actually quite painless. As the official global rail carrier for Expo 2015, TrenItalia has allotted 236 daily trains, of which 148 are high-speed Freccia trains, that all lead to the Rho Fiera Milano Expo 2015 station where a total of 67 national and international train services will make a special stop.  

If you’re coming from downtown Milan, the M1 Metro (red line) stops at Rho Fiera, which is just 25-minutes from Piazza del Duomo and 20 minutes from Cadorna.  Making it to Expo is the easy part. The food-themed World’s fair covers 110 hectares and choosing which of the 170 country and corporate to Pavilions to visit is the not-so-easy component.
