Hi, I would like to know what is the name of the airport in
Milan, and how far is from Stadium Meatsa. Are there any youth
hostels in Milan; This is for the Milan-AEK game on 2nd Nov.

There are two airports that serve Milan, Malpensa and Linate. Malpensa handles
most of the international traffic, while Linate handles the European traffic.
I'm not familiar with the stadium, I've only been to San Siro. But is you
don't get an answer, I can find out easily enough for you. Enjoy the match,
although I don't think you'll like the result, since Milan will win :)

FYI:  "Stadio Giuseppe Meazza" is the official name of the stadium
      that is also known as "San Siro".  Giuseppe Meazza was the team
      captain of the 1938 Italian World Cup team.

        I thought Giuseppe Meazza was a World War II pilot.

There are not many italian pilots i recollect of what i studied
of World War II, and for sure, none that could have deserved a
Soccer Stadium Dedication.

Charalampos,

Milan has two airports.

Linate airport serves mainly domestic and European flights and is on the northeast side of the city.  There are regular bus lines which will take you downtown.  From there, you can get the subway or a bus to the stadium.

Malpensa airport serves mainly transcontinental flights and is located to the west of the city, about a 50-60 minute drive.  Alitalia (I believe) includes a bus ride from the airport to their downtown offices in the fare price.  Their offices used to be right across the street from the Porto Garibaldi train station, which has a subway station.  Other airlines should offer the same service, but I don't know for sure about this.

Your best bet is to ask your airline where you'll be landing and what additional transportation they offer.

I believe the subway stop for Meazza (known locally as San Siro) Stadium is Piazzale Lotto (but I'm not 100% sure on this, since it's been many years now).  This is on Linea 1, the red line.  If you are starting out from a subway stop for Linea 2, the green line (as at Porto Garibaldi or the Central Train Station), you need to go to Piazza Cadorna and change to Linea 1 there.  The fare is currently (I was just there earlier this month) Lit. 1300, about $.85.  You  buy the ticket, then enter through the tur
nstiles, which stamp date/time on it.  The ticket is good for 1:15 as long as you don't exit the subway.  

Hope this is helpful.
