The recommended routes are:
For all the above-mentioned taxi companies, the recommended routes are:
Milano Centro (Piazza Della Repubblica to Porta Ticinese, Luino to Stazione FS) and Foro Buonaparte (Piazza San Babila to Stazione FS).
Tickets can be purchased at any of the stands located near the main train station on Piazza Della Repubblica. There is one company that you must definitely avoid – A.T.M. It’s the usual case when you want to transfer money electronically, and it costs an extra fee (statistical regional rate). Be careful when choosing your company!
Usually, if the service is requested in the city center, we recommend you to go by taxi. If you’re going to a specific point in Milan (for example Porta Nuova/Dorsoduro) then it works quite differently and you should decide which company would be more suitable for your needs. Our suggestion is always to call several companies and go with which is cheapest at that moment. Read on for more information on this topic…
On every street in Milan, there are also private cars offering rides. For this, you have to rely on the driver’s honesty. Therefore, we would not recommend that you use this service. You can also use your mobile phone to call a taxi company and tell them where you are, and a taxi will come to pick you up.
