Malpensa- how much time to allow for train?

Jump to last reply

We'll be arriving Malpensa at 9am, and will be then traveling to Florence. I believe we will need to take the Malpensa Express train to Milan Centrale, then change for Florence. I'd like to buy the train tickets ahead- last minute is 50eu, way ahead is 19 or 29eu.

How much time should we allow after our arrival at the airport, to our departure from Centrale? (Would like to move leisurely, not in a big hurry!)

Also, separate but related question. Later in the trip, we'll meet up with our daughters and be departing Malpensa after staying in Milan. With 4 of us taking the express, and first a taxi to get to Centrale from the hotel, I thought some other mode of transport might make sense. Is there some sort of car service, like Carmel in New York, or justairports in London, that would be better for 4 people? (Looks like a taxi would be around 100eu)
