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.
