How to Get Here

From O'Hare Airport:

At O'Hare Airport, follow the signs that read "Trains to the City" located just outside of Terminal 2. You will need to purchase a fare card from one of the several machines before entering the turnstyles. From O’Hare there is a new fare increase to $5 leaving the airport, all other rides are $2.50. You can purchase a single fare for $5.00 or add addiotnal value to use during your trip. Take any train leaving the O'Hare station and continue to the Damen station (about 35 minutes.) When you leave the train, walk down the stairs, turn left and continue to Milwaukee Avenue, and then turn right (Francesaca's Forno will be on your right.) This is a confusing intersection, you are taking a hard right to stay on Milwaukee. Continue down Milwaukee to Wolcott Avenue (at the stoplight, you will see a Walgreen's) and turn right onto Wolcott. The first street on your left is Wicker Park Avenue, and the Inn is located just a few houses down on the left at 1329. Allow about 45 minutes for the trip from O'hare Airport to the Wicker Park Inn.

From Midway Airport:

At Midway Airport, follow the signs that read "Trains to the City" and take any train leaving the Midway Station after you have purchased your fare card. You are now on the CTA Orange Line. Leave this train at the Clark/Lake station downtown, and walk down the stairs following signs to transfer to the Blue Line trains to O'Hare. You will catch this train underground. You do not need a "transfer" for this connection. Take this train to the Damen station. When you leave the train, walk down the stairs, turn left and continue to Milwaukee Avenue, and then turn right (Francesaca's Forno will be on your right.)

By Car:

If you are driving, take the Kennedy Expressway (Interstate 90 / 94) to Division Street (Exit 49A.) Turn west onto Division and continue past the major intersection of Milwaukee, Ashland, and Division streets to the next stop light, which is Wood Street. Turn right onto Wood and continue to the stop sign. Continue forward (the street angles a little) and in less than one block make the first left onto Wicker Park Avenue. The Inn is located about 1/2 block on the right.

By Taxi:

Because many cab drivers have difficulty finding our location, we recommend that you instruct him/her to take you to Division & Wood. At that point, ask your driver to turn north onto Wood and follow it until right before it dead ends and turn left onto Wicker Park Avenue. The Wicker Park Inn is on the right side of the street at 1329 N. Wicker Park Avenue.

From Union Station:

Walk South on Clinton Street to Congress. There is a Blue Line Subway station on this corner. Take the Blue Line heading toward O’Hare Airport and continue to the Damen station (about 15 minutes.) When you leave the train, walk down the stairs, turn left and continue to Milwaukee Avenue, and then turn right (Francesaca's Forno will be on your right.)
