Hotels in Milan near Expo 2015

Hotels during EXPO 2015

EXPO 2015 or "Universal Exhibition Milan 2015" will be held in Milan between 1 May and 31 October. This year’s theme is "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life" – this is an opportunity to discuss issues such as nutrition education, sustainable food production and biodiversity regarding both modern technologies and culinary traditions around the world. EXPO 2015 is a meeting point between people, space and nature and is without a doubt one of the most important events of the year.

Things to see

The event venue is located to the northwest of Milan, occupying an area of 270 acres that stretches from Milan to the town of Rho. One innovation introduced this year is the cluster – pavilions organised by theme – where participating countries can discuss a particular food, its production and distribution. The thematic areas are dedicated to more specific aspects, such as the evolution of the relationship between humans, nature and food, sustainable development taught to younger generations and the interpretation of these issues through art and media.

The exhibition site has a simple geometric structure resulting from the crossing of two main streets, whereby the longer street, Decumano, crosses perpendicularly with the shorter one, Cardo. The first will host pavilions of the 144 countries taking part in the exhibition, while the second is home to the Italian Palace and other exhibition spaces dedicated to the Italian proposals. Along these streets, you can find out more about local food specialties and the culture of each region..

The Lake Arena – an artificial lake surrounded by terraces that can accommodate up to 3,000 spectators, with a large tree-lined square holding up to 2820,000 – is also worth visiting. This space will be used for shows and concerts and, thanks to its impressive structure and surrounding water features, promises to be one of the exhibition’s most striking venues..

Between Piazza Castello and Via Beltrami you can also find the Expo Gate – two transparent, environmentally friendly buildings that serve as the ideal connection between Milan and the exhibition site. The Expo Gate is designed as a space for meetings and multimedia experiences and is fully equipped for hosting these as part of EXPO 2015.

Hotels during EXPO 2015

Its cultural heritage and leading role in the international fashion scene make Milan one of the most popular destinations across Italy. If you’re interested in visiting EXPO 2015, you just have to choose one of the many hotels in the city. On you can find solutions for all budgets, from luxury 5-star hotels with all amenities to the comfortable and pleasant bed and breakfasts located in the city centre. Given the huge demand for rooms within view of EXPO 2015, you might also want to look at alternative options, such as staying in a vacation home located elsewhere, possibly out of town. In fact, Milan is not the only place where you can easily get to the EXPO 2015 exhibition site: booking a hotel in Rho or Pero could be an excellent, cost-effective solution for visiting the exhibition while still being very close to Milan.

A visit to EXPO 2015 could also be the perfect opportunity to discover other parts of Lombardy, a region rich in history and extraordinary architectural and scenic beauty. The excellent transport links in the area will let you reach the exhibition in a short time, giving you the opportunity to experience EXPO 2015 without having to choose a hotel in Milan or the surrounding area. Going beyond regional borders, even booking a hotel in Turin can be a good alternative to a hotel in downtown Milan. The Piedmontese capital has excellent links with Lombardy, allowing travellers interested in Expo 2015 to reach the exhibition site in a short time and at very low cost.

How to get to EXPO 2015

Tickets for EXPO 2015 can be purchased either before or after the official opening date (1 May 2015), but it should be noted that after this date the price will increase slightly. Various types of offers are expected for visitors, such as reduced tickets for families, schools, the disabled, pensioners and students.

The exhibition site is very easy to reach and is strategically located between the three nearby airports: Linate, Malpensa and Orio al Serio. A high-speed rail link is located at the West Gate of the exhibition site, while visitors wanting to go by car can use motorways A4, A8 and A9 or tangential routes. People visiting the venue from Milan can use the city underground (red line MM1) to reach the Amendola-fieramilanocity or Lotto-fieramilanocity stops.
