The closest airports are
  • Milano Linate
  • Milano Malpensa (terminal 1)
  • Milano Malpensa (terminal 2)
  • (Milano/Bergamo) Orio al Serio
  • Linate is the only airport connected to Pavia by a direct bus (Pavia Linate Bus Express, operated by Autoservizi Migliavacca). The schedule (in Italian) is available

  • here
  • The bus stops at Via Ferrata-Polo Cravino, i.e. the University campus in which CNR IMATI is, according to the schedule (we never took it since we do not live in Pavia).

    Otherwise, you should reach Pavia from Milano by train, usually from Milano Stazione Centrale (Central Station). Trains might leave from other stations (Milano Rogoredo, Milano Lambrate, Milano Porta Garibaldi, Milano Porta Venezia), all connected to Milano Stazione Centrale (sometimes called Centrale F.S.) by the subway. We suggest to leave out of Milano Centrale. Train schedule can be found at the following website:

  • Trenitalia (Italian Railways)
  • Please note that train tickets are to be validated before boarding and their cost depends on the type of train you take. When buying a ticket, please be sure to buy it for the train you plan to ride.

    Milano Stazione Centrale is connected to the three airports by direct buses

  • Starfly (Linate-Centrale)
  • Airbus Linate-Centrale
  • Malpensa Shuttle
  • Orio Shuttle
  • From Linate it is possible to get the city bus 73 and then two subway lines to go to Centrale but it takes a while.

    Arriving in Milano Malpensa, it is possible to get the train to Milano Centrale or a faster one to Milano Cadorna (but then you need to get the subway to go to Centrale, or Porta Garibaldi or Lambrate).

  • Trenitalia (Type "Milano Malpensa" and "Milano Centrale" - note that not all trains are direct but require a change to the subway in Milano Cadorna)
  • Trains from/to Malpensa airport to/from Milano Cadorna
  • In Pavia you can walk or taki a bus (tickets should be bought in advance at newstands and to be validated once on board). Bus lines 3 and 7 are connecting CNR IMATI (and Polo Cravino) to the train station and Bus 3 goes also to the center of the city. Here are some links:

  • Pavia public buses (in Italian)
  • From Via Ferrata (CNR-IMATI, University and Collegio Volta) to the train station
  • From Via Ferrata (CNR-IMATI, University and Collegio Volta) to San Genesio ed Uniti (Hotel Riz)
