Welcome to the fashion capital of the world! Milan is Italy’s second largest city but the sheer number of financial, commercial, and industrial activities based here makes it the country’s economic powerhouse; a fact that is evidenced by the many skyscrapers, high-end fashion houses, information technology centres, and publishers that have taken up residence in the city. Given its status as a center for fashion and Italy’s main economic force, it is of little surprise that millions visit Milan every year to revel in the city’s metropolitan vibe and explore the elements of its tumultuous and fascinating past.
Although all of your transfers to airports, stations, harbors, and hotels have likely been included in your TrueTrip experience, there will be instances where you will use a taxi to get around. Always make sure that the driver starts the meter when you get in the taxi and check the meter before you pay. If in doubt about a fare, please check with your hotel concierge who is also able to arrange taxi pick-ups for you.
Although public transportation makes getting around quite easy, if you’d like to uncover more of this location, you may want to rent a car; your hotel concierge can assist you with making arrangements with a local car rental company. We always recommend careful and cautious driving in Europe as roads can be old, narrow and with high volumes of traffic.
