If you intend to drive in the heart of Milan, definitely opt for a compact car like a Fiat 500 to effortlessly fit through the narrow lanes. A minivan or SUV are good choices if the car is parked outside the city, as they provide more space for families and good tire traction for the country roads.
In residential areas, 50 kph (31 mph) is permitted, while 90 kph (56 mph) is the limit on rural roads. Highways allow up to 130 kph (80 mph), but check the posted signs and always adhere to the written speed limit, as the police are pretty strict with street regulations in Italy.
Parking in Milan requires a great deal of patience and time, so it is advisable to park in a parking lot or a P+R and walk into the city or take public transport. Curbside parking is an option and indicated with a blue line, but it is metered, so make sure to put your ticket in your windshield. A parking lot in the outskirts of the city would be Lampugnano, from which you can take the metro to the city center.
