We are arriving at Milan's Malpensa Airport at 6:55 pm on an SAS. Is there any way in the world we could make it to the train station in time to catch an 8:00 pm train to Genova? How about a 10:00 pm train?
Is there good subway or train service between the airport and the train station?
We are going to Cinque Terra. Our original plan was to arrive in Milan, spend the night, and take the train in the morning. But we cannot find an affordable hotel in Milan. Our arrival, Sept. 8, coincides with a convention and a tennis tournament, and even the Rick Steves 100 euro hotels are charging 200 euros for that week. So we just want to get out of Milan and head to Genova, where we were headed anyway on our way to Cinque Terra by train. What a choice -- penury or exhaustion!
