Discover the attractions of Milano riding your bike or use your two-wheeled to move around the city in the open air: where and how is this possible? Here is how to rent a bike with some suggestions for a couple of fascinating itineraries.

Don’t have a bike? Use bike sharing!

If you wish to rent a bike, here you will find info on Bike sharing. It is very easy: all you need is your credit card. You can also buy a daily pass to explore an area at a time.

Citylife

If you want to have a futuristic journey among Citylife skyscrapers and maybe get the chance of bumping into some celebrities living in Zaha Hadid’s buildings, you can start from Piazzale Giulio Cesare and enjoy the new park to have a look at the new skyscrapers pointing at the sky: Torre Isozaki, Torre Hadid and Torre Libeskind.

Along the canal banks

Ride along the Navigli: choose one of the three biking routes along the Naviglio Grande, the Naviglio Pavese and the Naviglio Martesana.

 

Along the route of Alzaia Naviglio Grande, you will dive into nightlife Milano along the canal, discover corners from the past, enchanting glimpses, enjoy views of the Lombard countryside with its farmhouses, under the magical sunshine which Milano often offers. Leaving from the Darsena you can get outside Milano up to Gaggiano e Abbiategrasso.

Discover the itinerary from the Darsena to Pavia.

 

Boat cruises along the Navigli are available from April to September during weekends; check the official webpage to find out how you can bring your bike on board.

Tortona district

Looking for a creative neighbourhood? Go to the Tortona district: from piazza S. Ambrogio take the biking routes crossing the Parco Solari (Solari Gardens) up to Piazza Del Rosario. You will also run into the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia (Science and Technology Museum) in Via Olona, where you can have a break to enjoy some of the works of the most creative among all geniuses, Leonardo da Vinci.

Porta Nuova and Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli

One of the most appreciated routes by Milanese bikers is the one leading from Porta Nuova to the Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli (Indro Montanelli Public Gardens). You can leave from the modern Piazza Gae Aulenti and ride through the Bastioni (Battlements): streets are wide and the context is particularly fascinating.
