Cancelled Flight again :( now leaving out of Linate in Milan, just need some help.

Second time cancelled flight to return to US and need some help. Thinking of staying right by airport for 2 nights and testing there and maybe a day trip. I have been to Milan before so if you all can, any insight on…..

  1. Where I might test near that airport?

  2. Any suggestions for hotel or B & B by the airport?

  3. Any mini day trip around there?

Thanks SO much.

There is no need to test at an airport. Any pharmacy can give you a test. Don't restrict yourself to a two-night (!!) airport stay.

Linate is so close, I don't understand why you would not just stay in Milan, even if you have been there before. Or, could you stay longer at your previous stop?

Makes more sense…..possibly stay or somewhere near. Any suggestions :)

Where are you coming from, and by what means?
Is your outbound flight early in the morning (in which case you'd likely want to be IN Milan, but one night should suffice)? If it is in the afternoon, then you could look at the lakes. But I think adding time at your previous stop is rarely a bad idea, or if we know where you are coming from, we can suggest a good one-night stopover.

No need to stay at the LIN airport.
Linate is only 5 miles from the city center. Any taxi can take you there in 15 minutes, unless you leave in the evening with outbound commute traffic, in which case it might be a few minutes longer.
Pharmacies performing the rapid test can be chosen below:

I am coming from Greve and was supposed to go out of Bologna. Added another day so two nights and possibly one near as it is a early morning flight. I am open to any hotels and/or ideas. I guess where would I want a night at the end of my trip? These two cancellations, sort of threw me off. Thanks everyone.
