Arriving Very Late in Milan - Safe to take a taxi to hotel?

Hi there --

Arriving at Malpensa around 11 p.m. Would it be safe to take a taxi to the hotel?

Are you prepared for the 80 -90 euro cost of a taxi? 80 was the quoted daytime rate so I imagine that at 11 pm it would be higher. Perhaps FF or others in Milan know of a different fixed rate.

Depending on how many people are in your party, you might want to take a train (right outside the airport) to Cadorna train station, and then take a cab to the hotel. Cadorna is a smaller train station than Milano Centrale. For us it was half the price of the cab straight from Malpensa. Search "Malpensa to Milan" on TA for cost and precise directions.

Taking the taxi will be very safe. However, consider that the fixed fare from Malpensa to Milna is 85€ . The alternative is to take a bus to Central Station Milan (ticket is around 8€) and take a taxi from there. There is also a train service to the city. However, they may replace the train with bus for late evening rides.
