Marvel at Milan in your rental car

Welcome to the marvelous Milan, one of the most popular and memorable cities in Italy. This city is a beacon of luxury and pioneering fashion designers, rich history, art, culture, and unforgettable landmarks. Add the city's mouthwatering and time-tested culinary traditions, and you’re only grazing the surface of what Milan has to offer. In short, it’s a top tourist destination for very good reason—it is dazzling and delightful no matter what kind of traveler you are, or what kind of things you are into. With a Milan Airport car rental from GoSee, you can explore this incredible city with complete comfort and flexibility.

Some info about Malpensa International Airport 

Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) is the second-busiest airport in Italy, serving over 20 million passengers each year—almost 10 times the amount Mallorca Airport in Spain serves! 

The airport is modern and very easy to navigate. It offers airport-wide fast and free WiFi so that you can easily plan your day, make accommodation books, or research your next steps.  

You’ll also find plenty of shopping opportunities between the many fashion and technology stores, restaurants, cafés, gift stores, and more. 

Once you are done shopping or dining and you are ready to rent a car in Milan Airport, you can make your way to the arrivals hall. From there, you’ll find signs pointing to the local rental car kiosks.

You may choose from several parking options within a 4-minute walk to the Milan Airport Terminal 1 and a free shuttle to Terminal 2. Long-term is the best choice if you want cheap multi-day parking. You may also get Express or Executive lots if you wish to park directly next to the terminal. While the Easy lot is next to T2 and includes a free shuttle to T1.

Milan Airport Malpensa is notably far from the city center, at over 50kms. A taxi ride from the airport may cost you north of €85, so it may make more sense to get a car hire directly from the airport's car rental desks and make the most of it.

If you do opt for Milan car rentals, the drive to the city center will take you around 40 minutes, and you’ll save yourself the high taxi fare.

Best times to visit Milan 

While driving a rental car in the UK in the winter can be a little gloomy, Milan is a city worth visiting any time of the year, but the best time to visit (weather-wise) is between April and May in the spring, when the weather is cooler than other months, and there are noticeably fewer tourists around. 

But if you’re visiting Milan for its main global attraction—fashion, you’ll want to be here for Fall in September when fashion week happens. Of course, it’s very crowded around this time of the year, too. 

For minimal crowds and ample opportunities to visit the iconic landmarks throughout the city in your rental car, you can’t beat Winter from December to February…just be prepared for the cold!

Whenever you decide to come, you’ll want to pre-book a car with GoSee to make sure you’re able to secure the cheapest deals on the car rental Milan Malpensa of your choice. 

Things you must see and do with your Milan car rental

As a leading globally recognized city, Milan’s reputation is already well established. Whether you’re a fashion enthusiast or want to delve into history, explore the country's rich cultural and artistic roots, or simply eat some of the most delicious food in the world, you’re in the right city. 

Here are just a few things you can look forward to seeing and doing while on your rental car Milan Airport trip:

Sforzesco Castle

Visit this wonderful old castle with your car hire from Milan. Sforzesco Castle is a medieval fortification from the 14th century, with touch-ups done in the early 1900s. Inside it lives works by both Michaelangelo and Leonardo Di Vinci.
