Discover the universal exposition of Milan

October is the last month to visit the International EXPO 2015 where the central theme is “Feeding the planet, energy for life”. A large number of pavilions, stands and events are still available in Milan fair, just a few stops away from the city center and easy to get to by train.

Explore the world in just one place

When entering the large arsenal of the Expo Milan 2015, you will be amazed by the new constructions, diversity and creativity that each country has put in place to show what they are proud of: their culinary culture.

With a bit of chance, you will be able to get into as many pavilions possible, while some have queues up to 5 hours.

Explorer’s Tip: “Start you tour from the back entrance at Porta Roserio to visit against the crowds and skip as many queues possible.”

The Pavillons

From the 3 floor construction of the United States pavilion, incl. a cool rooftop bar with music and drinks, over the journey through Thailand and its agricultural heritage, to a promenade walk around Germany’s Bundesländer or China’s light-show, each country gives you an inside to their cultural traditions and food production – the whole world in one place.

Explorer’s Tip: “Make sure to not miss the water show between the US and the Kuwait pavilion, a truly amazing animation. “
