one of the three Milan airports

Part of the international chain, it is located within easy reach of the Linate airport (free shuttle 6-10pm, afterwards on request) and the motorway. It has an open-air pool for the summer, outdoor parking, conference rooms, restaurant and bar.

Cristallo Palace ****
Only five minute drive from Orio al Serio airport and a short walk (15 minutes) to the railway station, the hotel is modern, with comfortable rooms - those at the back are quieter - and good food in the Antica Perosa restaurant. Free parking at the front.
