Milan Food Expo: promotion of physical activity (unstated)
Getting to the Milan Food EXPO by subway is not for the out-of-shape.
From the subway stop at Rho Fiera, the walk to the security gates is short. But then!
Up the escalator to the walkway over the railroad tracks:
Then to the next overpass to the fairgrounds:
Continue to the end of that overpass:
Enter the fairgrounds:
Walk all the way to the end of that section.
Counting the walk to the subway station, it’s been 2 miles to that point (by step-counter).
At last! The main drag of the Expo, the mile-long Decumano with the country pavilions aligned on both sides.
The U.S. Pavilion is almost at the end, on the left, just after Kuwait’s.
By then, it’s been nearly 3 miles. And just getting started!
To get to the U.S. Pavilion with less effort, take a taxi to the East security entrance.
