We went to the Expo on Tuesday 12th May because I know from Shanghai that the 1st 2 weeks of an Expo have fewer crowds than later in the year. I asked on TA for a map of the site before we went and Maigret2013 kindly gave us the link to https://parkexpo2015.arriva.it/expo/images/PORTALE/people_mover_perweb.pdf
which I printed off to take with us. We stayed at the excellent Hotel Berna (see review) so we walked 2 blocks to Repubblica and got the S5/S6 train to Rho Feria (5 euros return) which took about 15 minutes.

Everyone seemed to already have a ticket (as did we – ordered online from the Expo website), and the queue to get in wasn’t too long, at 9.30 am. They started letting people in at 9.55 am. It is an airport style security. They asked you to take your water bottle out & put it into a separate sort of tray to send through. I think this is a mistake, as my husband promptly forgot to pick it up (everyone was going through very quickly) so we had to buy another water! I’m sure we’re not the only people to do this.

The site is about 1 mile from end to end, and there is only one entrance to the trains. So the minute we got in we headed north, next to the Expo Centre (seemed to be an administrative building) for the F2 bus stop, for the internal circular bus. Only one other man & my husband & I did this, most other people just seemed to be milling about, do recommend this. We got off at F7 (see map) so we only had to walk one way back to the station.

We then walked up the Mediterranean Hill (not very high, no impressive view, pity). We had decided we would not attempt any Pavilion with a queue. This was because the pavilions with queues wanted to hold people back (in Japan’s case for 30 minutes!) even if you were at the front of the queue, and then let a small group in together. Those which allowed free flow were never too crowded (well in May anyway). So if I don’t mention a Pavilion it’s probably because they forced you to queue.

We visited:
Oman - very pleasant
Indonesia – small, not very impressive
Turkmenistan – lots of photos of a General?, nice carpets
Estonia – very friendly and nice, you can learn Estonian dancing
Russia – ok videos
Qatar – my favourite, amazing laser exhibit
Monaco – quite sweet
Turkey – good exhibits on thousands of years of history
Arid Zone and Islands pavilions - small rooms of a few countries from Africa and Asia, mainly photos, but also with some very nice artefacts, worthwhile to explore
Iran – invented the pistachio, was quite nice
Cereals countries – small rooms of a few countries, mainly photos, BUT had lunch in very good Pizza Giovane which is at the bottom of that pavilion – relatively empty as no-one knows it’s there
Germany – queue was downstairs, so walked upstairs only – interesting information on the states which make up Germany
Slovenia – nice videos
Had excellent ice creams in Gelato Rigoletto, at the south end of the Italian stands, plus there are tables nearby to sit and eat them under the trees – was now 3.00 pm
Romania – small, not impressive
Spain – fun, videos and artefacts
Netherlands – a disappointment, hardly any pavilion, just a small mirror maze, and a “village” of food trucks, a bit scruffy
Hungary – nice architecture, but inside is just an auditorium and nothing was happening
Poland – interesting, about how they rebuilt after the 2nd World War
UK – nice wild flower garden, and interesting structure
Spices countries – small rooms of a few countries, static displays, quite nice
Argentina – fun music to dance to!
China – fun, with a surprise at the end of the video – you must see this!
Lindt – did queue for 5 minutes – is one small free piece of chocolate then a shop – more expensive than buying it in UK supermarkets, pity
Malaysia – did queue for 10 minutes as starts with a group video, nice rainforest – pro palm oil! – was worthwhile
Belorussia – nice waterwheel, couldn’t find way into pavilion
Vietnam – very pretty artefacts
Nepal – nice architecture, but sadly not completed and empty – presume people never able to come over
Czech Republic – had lovely dinner on 3rd floor of pavilion, about 7.45 pm, and enjoyed artefacts in pavilion

So then was very close to station again, got on S5/S6 back to Repubblica about 8.45 pm. Was lovely sunny, enjoyable day.

Warning: if you attend EICMA or any other Fair DO NOT BOOK ONLINE with Ticketone.it !!!!!!!!!!!!
Reason is simple . They will take your money (for interest ) but will not give you any ticket.Instead you get an Invoice which when presented at the Fair , you have to walk miles to get to a little Ticketone office at one gate only . You get there and you find all the people who booked online like you and wait to retrieve your ticket .
This website should print the ticket but for obvious reasons it does not . Officials from the actual fair consortium were very polite and agreed that this site was only good to rake in money . We are claiming money from them as we write , as it took us about two hours to get into the fair ground last Saturday 21st November !

Great place for exhibitions. I usualy visit Salone del Mobile and I can say - soooo may people from all over the world come here. It is just a bit stressy when lunch time. You have to catch a chair!

Nothing to complain about micam but service at restaurants is awful. They don't know what they are selling. It took almost half a hour to get cold and smallest ragu pasta what I have ever eaten in italy. portions are for children and that is the good thing because of the taste or lack of it. Please, eat well before entering or don't work for whole day.

In other hand, the micam is organized well and there is easy to navigate.

The connection with the public transport is good. Service and logistics could be better, but similar at the other big exhibitions center.

My husband and I visited the November 2015 Bike show in Milan. It was so easily accessible from the city centre by metro which takes yo directly to the venue. The range of eating opportunities was excellent. There are local hotels which is fine if you are only staying for day or overnight. Ideally stay in the city centre and travel on the day, probably about 30 minutes on metro.

Sight of the Milano Expo 2015. The fairgrounds were transformed into the exposition featuring pavilions from hundreds of countries and companies and products highlighting feeding our planet and healthy eating, growing, and planting processes. See my review of Milan Expo 2015. Unfortunately it ends on October 31, 2015.

The theme was Feeding the Future.Participating countries showcase their food sources, their country's produce, advances in food technology and the like. The individual pavilions do their best to represent the food culture the country is best known for. We went for 2 days and we probably visited 90% of the pavilions. Some we weren't so keen on so we skipped them. There were other countries that had long lines to go in like Kazakhstan and Japan. Our US pavilion was not impressive which was quite disappointing. It was more like a food science fair. We watched the open air performance of Cirque du Soleil.When you visit make sure you get one of the Expo passports from the gift shop for 5 Euro. Great for show and tell for the kids at school. The country pavilion stamps the Expo passport once you visit.

Great fussion of the world's foods, cultures, technology and people. You need to visit Expo Milan 2015 to witness this for your self. I tested, Slovakia's typical food, Japanese rice burger, Dutch Fries and meat balls, French Barguette, Mozambiquan baggita, Ugandan coffee, and the list goes on and on. An experience of a lifetime indeed. What more with meeting people from around the world.

Against all bets, the opening day, May 1st, we found the so-much-spoken-about EXPO in a really good shape, with most of the pavillons opened (they are so many, that even if some are closed, you'll never have a time to see all in 1 day!). Amazing buildings, nice expositions (not all completely in the "equitable food" theme), every people in every stuff seemed really involved, busy, helpful, smiling and ready to do all their best for visitors.
You really loose yourself in the enormous mirrors show of Italy's beauties in Palazzo Italia.
You can enjoy exotics dances, and music played with unknown instruments (we saw the ones of the ex-URSS republics, superb). Difficult to choose where to eat: for example in Eataly area you have a choice of 2-3 dishes for each Italian region, and plenty of place to sit down (also some outside, with good weather).
Easy access with MM1 (Rho Fiera Milano EXPO). Consider you'll have to walk A LOT: the site is about 1.5 km*500m and you want to go all the way from the Metro stop to the far end, and stands are on 3-4 rows.... We'll be back for sure before the closing, end of October.
