ATM runs many parking lots in the outskirts next to underground stops and stations. More information can be found on their website.

A possible place to park near Milan Central Station is at Garage 2000 SrL.

Curbside parking in the heart of the city of Milan is possible on a “pay and display’’ basis (in spaces marked by blue lines).
