Bergamo Airport doesn’t have an internal railway station. Visitors that wish to take a train will therefore need to first take a bus from the Airport to Bergamo train station, and then from there to Milan. This is definitely the most complicated way of getting to Milan’s city center, but it gives you the opportunity to stop in Bergamo’s city center and visit it, if you have time.
The most comfortable way of reaching Milan is to book a taxi. Being Bergamo quite far away from Milan, a taxi from Bergamo Airport to Milan city center is over € 100. It is still a very hassle-free way to get to the city center, but the travel’s time to destination can vary a lot depending on traffic conditions. With normal traffic conditions, a taxi takes about 50 minutes to go from Bergamo Airport to Milan’s city center.
