Why rent a car in Milan?

Renting a car in Milan is a great idea. Having your own ride will let you explore this large city, as well as to travel to many other interesting destinations in Northern Italy.

Milan Car Rental

Top ways to enter Milan

  • Milan Malpensa Airport: Second busiest in Italy, Malpensa Airport is about an hour’s drive west Milan city center, and offer some of the most stunning views right before the landing.
  • Bergamo Airport: Located in the nearby town of Bergamo, this airport is an hour’s drive east of Milan and is favored by many low-cost carriers.
  • Milan Linate Airport: The smallest of the three international airports in the Milan area, Linate is also the one that is the closest to the city center.
  • By rail: If you’re arriving in Milan by train, you can conveniently pick up a rental car right at the Milan Central Railway Station.

Useful city facts

  • Milan Region is the most densely populated part of Italy. The Milan metropolitan area, also known as Grande Milano, has more than 8 million people living in it.
  • Winters in Milan can be quite cold, with occasional snowfall. In summer, humidity levels are high and peak temperatures can reach temperatures above 35 °C (95 °F).

Top destinations and activities

  • Milan Cathedral. Duomo is the most famous building of Milan and the heart of the city, located right next to countless other landmarks.
  • The historic center. Centro Storico area is right next to Duomo and is the reason from where Milan gets its posh reputation as Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping arcade, Teatro Alla Scala opera house, as well as many restaurants, fashion boutiques, and art galleries are located there.
  • Sempione Park. Milan has several beautiful parks and gardens, but Parco Sempione is perhaps the most famous one, both because it is the largest and because it houses the renaissance Sforza Castle and its museum with artworks by Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Traffic and parking tips

The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 

Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.

The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.

If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.

The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 

The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of a vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route. 

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Bergamo. Just 60 km (42 mi) from the city center, Milan’s smaller, but equally charming neighbor offers the walled Upper City, great restaurants, and countless museums and galleries.
  • Turin. About 2 hours drive west of Milan, the capital of Piedmont Region and Italy’s fourth largest city, Turin is sometimes considered Milan’s friendly rival. It offers stunning architecture, interesting history, and perhaps a tad more relaxed atmosphere.
  • Lake Maggiore. The town of Arona, located on the southwest coast of this picturesque lake, is just a bit more than an hour’s drive away from Milan.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car in Italy is the Fiat Panda, but travelers also pick the Ford Fiesta and the Fiat 500. The most often picked rental car types are economy, mini, and compact. 

Further destinations

  • Switzerland. Closer to Milan than Rome and Venice, Switzerland is a great nearby destination full of dramatic mountain scenery and cozy little valley towns. Start in the Italian-speaking region of Ticino, then proceed to Geneva in the west or Davos and the many national parks in the east. Note that if you’re coming from Milan to Switzerland, you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it.
  • Provence. France’s picturesque coastal stretch is just a three and a half hour drive southeast of Milan. Visit Mediterranean towns like Nice, Cannes, and Marseille, and make time for a short stop in Monaco, the affluent microstate that’ll be on the way. Note that if you’re coming from Milan to France, you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it.
  • Parma, Modena, and Bologna. The three cities of Emilia-Romagna region are located next to the same national highway, and each make an equally interesting travel destination thanks to a unique history, architecture, and culinary traditions.

if you want to travel to neaby places and locations (which we did), it's absolutly necessary to rent a car, otherwise you will miss out on a lot of beautiful locations.

We drove from Milan to Venice then Florence and on to Rome. Best to be aware of parking restrictions both in Venice ( best idea to check options on line) and Florence (many central hotels, such as the one we stayed at, have special arrangements with garages for safe and reasonable cost parking). Most of the main sights in Florence are relatively close to each other and hence there may be no need for a car unless you wish to visit other towns or villages.

Renting a car in Milan was somewhat easier than I had expected. Driving in the city was a bit challenging, but driving to our other destinations were for the most part quite easy. The GPS was extra, but was very useful to have. Dropping the car in Rome took some time as we were not told exactly where it needed to be dropped off at. We simply used the address that was on the receipt, but it was actually for the front desk. All in all, a pleasant experience.

Renting a car is very necessary UNLESS you ONLY want to visit major cities Milan, Florence, Rome... where you can take a direct Train. Otherwise there is no other way to get around. In the Tuscany area parking is a real bitch, especially in the walled cities like Montalcino, Sienna, San Gimignano so PACK Light. have a nap sack that you can put one or two days clothes and personals in and leave the suitcase in the trunk.

Plan where to park. Milan, like a lot of European cities, towns & villages, were originally built for horses, carriages & mules. Not a lot of extra room to park. On the outskirts of Milan, where modern vehicle planning was executed, it is not a big deal.
