First night after arriving in Milan

Jump to last reply

After an overnight flight, we will arrive at Milan Malpensa around 10:30 a.m. We would like to take a train or bus from the airport, heading south or southeast, and find a small town where we can spend the night. We will be going into Milan later, en route from Venice to Switzerland. We want to check in to a small hotel, walk around in the sun to try to acclimate ourselves to the new time, eat an early dinner, and go to bed. It it's a charming small town, that would be a plus.

We have reservations in Florence for the following two nights, so we want to get a fairly early start the next morning so as to arrive in Florence around midday (so I guess we need to be handy to a train station).

Is this a good plan? Can someone suggest some places to stay? Can we take a train directly from the airport, or, if not, how about a bus?
