Plan your journey from Milan Linate AirportAfter collecting your hire car from Avis Milan Linate airport, it’ll take you just 30 minutes to drive into central Milan.
Piazza Duomo (Cathedral Square) is the main hub of Milan, where you can see the magnificent Milan Cathedral as well as some of Milan’s most important buildings. Prepare to be amazed by the sheer size and features of the Cathedral (it has 135 spires and a staggering 3,200 statues). The roof, accessible by stairs and lift, gives you a breathtaking view of Milan.
On the other side of the piazza you’ll see the entrance to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, an exclusive shopping arcade built in the 19th century. Enjoy a stroll to admire the bars, cafés and up-market shops.
At the other end of the Galleria, across the road, stands La Scala, the world-famous opera house. Join a guided tour to discover the many secrets and facts about this splendid theatre. It’s a short distance from La Scala to the Quadrilatero d’Oro fashion district, four streets forming a compact location for stores of the biggest designer names.
One of the city’s major highlights is, of course, Leonardo da Vinci’s Il Cenacolo or ‘Last Supper’, in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. It’s a very popular attraction so make sure you book tickets well ahead. Da Vinci also helped design the defences of the imposing Castello Sforzesco in Piazza Castello, which now houses several museums with exhibits covering Palaeolithic history and furniture, among other things.
If you’re intending to visit one of the city’s famous trade shows, a hire car is a must as most events are now held approximately 10 miles from the city centre. Fiera Milano at Rho can be reached via the A4 and the A8/A9 motorways or the Tangenziale Ovest.
Road trips from MilanWhen it’s time to escape the city, you don’t have to go far from Milan to find great options.
Take the A9 and SS340 from Milan. Lake Como is one of the top destinations in Italy with outstanding natural beauty. It’s situated at the foot of the Rhaetian Alps, and its shoreline is clustered with tiny villages and towns. Bellagio is a popular village to explore, thanks to its lakeside setting and centuries-old buildings.
With its distinctive, colourful buildings scattered along the cliff edge, Cinque Terre has featured on many postcards. From Milan, take the A7 and A12 to reach this picture-perfect destination in two hours. There are five fishing villages located inside Cinque Terre National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site, which all offer idyllic coastal views. The drive itself is worth the journey.
Genoa, the hub of the Italian Riviera, is a two-hour drive from Milan, via the A7. The city is known as the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and has several landmarks to explore. See the Old Town, which is a Unesco World Heritage Site, and make time to visit the Piazza de Ferrari and the Palace of the Doges.
With the ease and convenience of an Avis hire car, you can see Milan and beyond at your own pace. Get ready to explore northern Italy. All you have to do is drive.
