How to reach us

Directions and maps below refer to the new via Corti entrance. 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 very 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, some long distance trains 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.

As said, most long distance trains arrive at Milano Centrale; some trains from Turin, Paris or Rome may arrive at Porta Garibaldi; some trains from Bologna (Rome or Adriatic coast) and Genoa, terminating at either station, may stop also at Milano Rogoredo. You might find convenient to stop there and take a regional train to Lambrate (travel time 5-10 min). See Trenord timetable.

Trams no. 33 and 19 and trolleybus no. 93 go along via Bassini.

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

By car

Exits 7 Rubattino or 8a Lambrate on the Tangenziale Est (A51) motorway are the easiest ways to reach the Institute. Follow the signs Centro Città which will take you either in via Bassini (coming from Rubattino) or in via Porpora (coming from Lambrate). Parking in via Bassini or via Corti is not an easy task.
