      Bergamo airport is the one which is the furthest from the city centre.
      Apparently 40 mins from Milan by taxi.
      God Knows how far from the ground.

      Thought this could help out those travelling abroad…

      As a Liverpool fan who is hoping to travel to Spain and hopefully Rome at the end of the season.

      I thought I might be able to help out my fellow Reds who are also travelling to the games and who intend to park at an airport.

      The company I work for (Skyparksecure) operates a booking agency for airport parking at all U.K. airports. Who guarantee that they will not be beaten on price.

      I have set up a discount code SKYLFC which when entered into the website @ http://www.skyparksecure.com will give all Liverpool fans an extra 12% discount on the cost of parking   :o

      This code can be used by all friends and family who want airport parking for leisure or business but not in conjunction with any other offer.

      Let’s make it a dream season and capture the DOUBLE! :champ:

      We get a better allocation at some grounds more than others, like Ewood Park for instance....keep your eyes peeled for next season.

      Noticed that myself.  Matches down South are a closed shop for away tickets.

      Only real chance is in a cup game, last time I got an away ticket for a down south game was the Carling Cup at the Emirates.
