How to reach Pavia
Pavia is a small town (about 100K citizens) located in North Italy, 30 km south of Milan. It is on the railway connecting Milano to Genova and very close to the highways connecting Milano to Genova (A7) and Torino to Piacenza (A 21)
You can fly to one of Milan's three airports: Linate (50 km from Pavia), Malpensa (90 km from Pavia) or Orio al Serio (70 km from Pavia).
If you arrive at Linate airport, the cheapest and easiest way to
reach Pavia is to take one of the 6 direct shuttle buses at 9.10 -
11.50 - 14.00 - 16.50 - 18.45 - 21.05 - it takes 60 minutes
If you arrive at Malpensa airport, you can take a direct train to
Milan Central railway station (Stazione Centrale) (see: http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html)

that leaves every 30 minutes to Cadorna station in Milan (duration:

line) as the Milan central station. From Milan's central railway
station you can take a train to Pavia.
