First thing is how i can get feom Milan-Bergamo airport to Milan Central and what's the prices? and if I want to get back to airport-are the trains or buses running at night time as well?
What's the best option to travel in Milan? Metro? And how much is a ticket for all day?
And my last question; and tifo shops in Milan? if yes-where? :)
thanks for Your help guys! :cheers
There are two cheap possibilities to get from Bergamo airport to Milano Centrale:
1) you can go by comfortable bus, which costs 15 EUR (including return trip) - it should take about 1 hour or more if there would be traffic jam. The bus stop is exactly 10 steps near the front gate in the airport. Moreover you can choose a few lines, which you want to go...
2) you can go by normal metropolitan bus - number 1A - it goes to the Citta 'Alta. I recommend this way of journey. You can find this bus near the gate from the airport - the same as in the option number 1. This bus stopped exactly in the railway station in Bergamo. Then you must buy ticket on train to Milano Centrale. It costs 5,15 EUR. The trains go every hour at 10.02, 11.02, 12.02 etc. In this way you can see some more things like for example a few typical smaller cities in Italy.
The last train to Bergamo goes at 23.40 from Milano Centrale. If you want to get to this train, I recommend to go out from the stadium at 22.30 the very latest. There is about 20-30 minutes to go to Metro station and then you must find 2 Metro lines (red line to Duomo and then yellow line to Centrale FS or red line to Cadorna and then green line to Centrale FS) to go to Milano Centrale. In the evening Metro goes not so good as during the day. One time I must wait for the metro 12 minutes in the evening... It's quite long as during the day you must wait about 3 minutes. And if you need to hurry up on the train - these minutes could be conclusive...
The last bus to the Bergamo airport from the Milano Centrale (the bus stop of the comfortable buses is near the railway station Milano Centrale) goes at 23.30. Then first bus goes at 5.30 (but I'm not sure about it). You must remember that the railway station Milano Centrale is closed on the whole night, so even if you would you can't sleep there on the bench :).
When you will be in Milano Centrale I suggest to buy ticket on Metro (one day - price 4 EUR) as it is crazy to travel on this city with busses :). If you want to see the city - you can go on foot, but from the Milano Centrale to the San Siro stadion is more than 1,5 hour with the fast tempo - I tried this one time at night :). Great experience :D.
There are no tifo shops in Milano - at least I didn't find them there. There are only shops for football pussies who want to buy T-shirts, scarves with official logo, sponsors etc. Tifo shops are only on stadium on Curva Sud and Curva Nord tribunes. You must get into this side of stadium to buy souvenirs from these groups.
