How to reach us

The directions below still refer to our base location in via Bassini. Due to construction works in the CNR premises, entrance currently occurs from via Corti as specified in these directions.

Public Transport

The Institute is easily reachable by public transport, being within walking distance (2-3 blocks) from the Metro Green line (no. 2) stations of Piola or Lambrate (see map). The Lambrate railway station is instead served by some suburban rail lines and few long distance train.

The Metro Green line also serves other railway stations like: Milano Centrale (Central Railway Station), where most long distance trains arrive, and where buses from Linate and Malpensa airports and some (hourly) trains from Malpensa airport have their terminal; Milano Porta Garibaldi (suburban rail lines and most same trains from Malpensa airport); and Cadorna (Stazione Nord), where trains (Malpensa Express, every 30 minutes) from Malpensa airport come in.

More info on airport connections is here.

Trams no. 33 and 23 and trolleybus no. 93 go along via Bassini.

Info on public transport fares and map is here. A day ticket may be a convenient choice.
