From Bergamo Airport to Milan
Every year, many visitors arrive in Milan from Bergamo Airport.
The airport is located about 45km from Milan and is one of Italy’s busiest airports, bringing passengers from all over the world.
It is also known as Il Caravaggio International Airport, after the painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, who was born in Milan and probably spent his childhood at Caravaggio in the province of Bergamo. In 2015, over 10 million passengers passed through Bergamo Airport.
Bergamo Airport has all the facilities that you would expect from a busy, international airport. These include shops where you can pick up necessities or last minute souvenirs, and restaurants and cafés, where you can enjoy a coffee before continuing on to Milan, or a meal while waiting for your flight.
There are banks, a bureau de change and a tourism office for Bergamo and Bergamo Province. You will also find the Autostradale-MilanTourismPoint Office, where you can get tourist information on any aspect of your stay in Milan and pick up your MilanoCard so that you can start saving money from the moment you arrive in Milan. This office is open from 6am to 1am daily.
