The Milan metro and suburban rail network: how to get around the city
InfoMilano, the tourist information and hospitality point originally conceived for Expo 2015, has been set up in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. By
InfoMilano is the city’s first visiting card and the place from which everyone can get friendly, helpful, multilingual advice about everything that Milan has to offer. A modern facility designed to welcome and accompany tourists from their arrival in the city and for the entire duration of their stay, offering a vast range of services: from cultural activities to hotel accommodation right up to the various options available to discover the city and its attractions, including museums, restaurants, historic workshops and the most exclusive shopping. The choice of setting up InfoMilano inside the Urban Center stemmed from a need to provide tourists with a highly central, visible and attractive place positioned in one of the city’s best-known destinations, namely the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a connecting point between piazza del Duomo and Teatro alla Scala. Boasting 400 square metres spread out over
90 three floors (170 of which comprise the ground floor), the Urban Center was designed to accommodate a visitor influx estimated at around 90,000 people per day in anticipation of the Universal Exposition held in 2015. The establishment of the InfoMilano space serves as an addition to the regular activities of the Urban Center which will continue to host debates, presentations and meetings open to the public. The spaces, its flooring, partitions and audio/video systems have been upgraded to guarantee improved efficiency and a more rational use of the space available, thus guaranteeing the complete autonomy of the two facilities.
