There are 2 airports in Milan, the main one being Malpensa. Being the major city of Italy, it is well served by trains and buses from most towns. It is also close to the Swiss border and you can cross over in about 45mins' drive up north!
It's advisable to go around in Milan by the metro. Trying to drive within the city would be madness!
By plane, 2 solutions: 'Linate' airport in the est of Milan, definitly the easiest way, just outside the city (5km from the center). You can take a taxi.
And the second one 'The international airport', good luck, 40km in the north-west of Milan.
I got there by Airplane form Munich. I landed at Malsapenta. If you can, try to arrage landing at the other aport, Linate, since it's much closer and CHEAPER by taxi!
I walk a lot, but that's because all the places us University studetns go to, is near by.
Otherwise go by metro and tram. But make sure to stamp your ticket. The truth is, they hardly have inspectors come and check to see who has one, but the first day i was about to go on without a ticket, there was an inspector...so i took it as a sign!

We took the train from Malpensa airport, 11 Euro's for a single. trip took about 40 minutes and they leave every 30 minutes. The train links to Stazione Nord and then we took the metro.
We flew in from London Heathrow (LHR) to Malpensa airport (MXP) which is 50km northwest of the city. Flight was about 3 hrs.
This bus takes you to the airport. You can get it on near the central station. You don't need reservation.
