Milan Expo 2015 – Tickets Now Available!

Milan expo tickets - available now online

Advance ticket sales for the Milan 2015 Expo are now taking place. Hundreds have reportedly already been sold since the online Expo 2015 ticketing machine went live yesterday.

Fixed date tickets for the first day of the Expo appear to have already sold out.

Here’s information on Milan Expo 2015 ticket prices, where you can buy tickets online, and some suggestions on where to stay – especially if Milan accommodation is full when you want to come.

The 2015 Milan Expo will run from May 1 to October 31 and will be open every day from 10 in the morning until 11 in the evening.

If you buy an Milan Expo 2015 ticket now, you’ll save up to 20% on the full ticket price. The basic online ticket price is €32 which becomes €27 if you specify a certain date. There are family tickets and tickets for visiting groups of school children, plus discounts for the over 65s.

The disabled, alas, are not able to purchase Expo tickets online because they are required to present proof of their disability. At present, the only way for individuals will a disability to acquire a ticket is for them to go buy one in person – which may not be easy. Tickets may be purchased from the Expo Gate which sits in front of Milan’s castle.

Another minor annoyance is that it does not appear to be possible to buy tickets for more than one Expo day. This may change though. Let’s hope so, as I suspect one day may not be enough to see everything.

As part of the ticket buying process you will be asked to register – email address, password etc. You will also be able to decide whether you want to receive promotional email. You have to check the first box as it is a requirement of Italian privacy law. If you are going to check any of the other boxes, then this is probably the only one worth checking: “I agree to receive promotional information from Expo 2015.” Check the other boxes and you may receive more “promotional” emails than you expect and may well continue to receive these emails for decades after the 2015 Milan Expo has ended. The choice, though, is yours.

Once you have purchased your ticket, or tickets, you can print it, or them, off. Don’t forget to bring the ticket, or tickets, with you!

You can get your tickets here: Milan Expo 2015 tickets or you can buy them using the Expo Milano 2015 Official App
