Bergamo airport is very easy to navigate. Go through passport control, then follow the RITIRO BAGAGLI signs for baggage claim.
Check the number of the baggage claim belt on the board. In this example, passengers of the Pobeda DP 803 flight from Moscow (Moskow) are issued baggage on belt number 5.
After picking up your luggage, follow the USCITA sign to the exit.
Attention! Before leaving, you may be stopped by an Italian customs officer – do not worry and answer his questions honestly. Most likely, they will clarify the amount of cash with you – according to the law, it should not exceed 10,000 euros. Control is carried out selectively.
When you leave the baggage claim area, you will see drivers waiting for customers who booked transfers in advance, as well as signs for taxis and buses.
The bus stop is located immediately on the right at the exit of the airport.

Regional trains from Bergamo leave for Milan and other cities in Italy. A ticket to Milan costs 5.5 euros. The train option to Milan is suitable for those who need to get, for example, directly to Porta Garibaldi Station (Milano Porta Garibaldi) or Lambrate, Villapizzone stations.
Tickets can be bought from the machine, but since they often slow down, I advise you to purchase them at the TABACCHI store (to the left of the entrance). The cost is the same, and the time savings are from 5 to 15 minutes.
On the station board, look for your train number and route (BIN).
The ticket is punched before entering the platform in a special machine.
