The car2go smartcars, which will enable those who already have a ticket for the Salone del Mobile to drive to the Milan Fairgrounds, will be recognizable by a sticker that reads ‘Destinazione Salone’. Parking will be in Largo Nazioni, accessibile from Cargo1. Those not yet registered will be able to do so in Corso Italia, near the Centro Servizi, where the card will cost only 9€ instead of 19€, with 15 minutes of free driving time included.
Purchasing tickets online. Buy online and save. Pre-registration in this case is obligatory and allows you to choose between Basic Admission (entrance to the Fiera only) and the All-inclusive Ticket (entrance to the Fiera + free use of public transport).
