Hotel outside Milan centro

We are finishing up a long driving trip, coming in from Aosta on Thursday and leaving the Malpensa airport on Saturday, and would like to go to the Duomo and The Last Supper on Friday but we don't want to drive into Milan. Can anyone recommend a nice hotel outside the downtown area where we could park the car and get a taxi or take the Metro into the center of the city? We really really don't want to drive downtown Milan but we don't want to miss these two sites. Thank you soooo much.

I am sure someone will suggest such a hotel, but did you consider turning the car back in and taking the train to Milan and get a hotel closer to the center, or even near Milan central station? Or just returning it once you get to Milan? This might be the best even if you still have to pay for those last days for the car - I know sounds wasteful, but the car rental might just be a sunk cost..

As you already figured out, a car will be worse than useless those last two days when you are in Milan and you can get to the airport by public transport on Sat.

Anyway, just a (maybe small) thought.

I agree with TravelSmith give the car back at either linate or Malpensa airport then get the bus from Linate or the train from Malpensa into Milan and stay there for the remaining 2 nights.
