Expo Milano 2015: how to reach the exposition site, expo parking





To reach the Exposition Site by underground (metro), purchase an extra-urbano (extra-urban) ticket, and take Linea 1 Rossa (Red line 1) to Rho Fiera Milano station. Duomo and Cadorna are on Line 1, where they connect to the city’s other underground lines.

Travel time to the expo site is expected to be about 25 minutes from Piazza Duomo, 20 minutes from Stazione Cadorna, 35 minutes from Stazione Centrale, and 30 minutes from Stazione Garibaldi.

Exiting the Rho Fiera Milano underground station, which is close to the Fiorenza Ovest access point, visitors take the steps to the Security Plaza.

Once through the security checks, visitors cross the Expo-Fiera pedestrian footbridge (PEF) to reach the Expo Site. There are ticket booths and visitor services in the access area of the Rho Fiera Milano metro station. With the red line you can also reach the main park and ride (Molino Dorino and Lampugnano).

At peak times there is a subway train every two minutes, that transports 36 thousand travellers per hour.

On weekdays the last bus is at 00:10, and on weekends at 00:40. The cost of a round-trip ticket is 5 euro.

When the metro services end, there is the night bus replacement, seven days a week, for all of the six months of the exhibition.


  • BY TRAIN: RHO Fiera Station

You can reach the Exposition Site by train, following the signs for the new Expo railway station Rho Fiera, that will connect regional railway lines to Milan’s underground metro lines. TRENITALIA is official transport carrier.

Tour buses will drop visitors at the long-term Merlata parking area. Depending on demand, tour buses may be diverted to the Roserio Terminal. Advance booking is necessary.

From the Merlata parking area, visitors reach the security area via a pedestrian walkway. Once through the security checks, visitors cross the Expo-Fiera footbridge (PEF) to reach the Expo Site.

Three motorways can bring you to EXPO 2015:
