Traveling to Codogno:
The town is about 40 miles south of Milan (there are many trains each day). You might also want to include a stop at the birthplace of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, which is along the way in the town of Sant’Angelo Lodigiano, although that route is a combination of train and bus. Get train & bus schedules, see fares & buy tickets here.
