Getting Around

Milan is a large city spread out over a very large area but luckily their public transport system is cheap and efficient. ATM tickets (bought from metro stations, bars, news kiosks and tobacco shops before boarding the vehicle) are valid on buses, trams and the metro alike.  Be sure to stamp your ticket in the machine provided when you begin your journey unless you’d like to be shouted at by a uniformed Italian person.

Standard ticket valid for 75 mins costs 1 euro.
One Day ticket valid for 24 hours costs 3 euros.
Two day ticket valid for 48 hours costs 5.50 euros.
One week ticket valid for a week costs 9 euros.

Buses and Trams

The direction and routes of buses and trams are clearly marked on their stops at the side of the road. You might like to carry a map so that the names are in some kind of context. You might also like to watch out for passing vehicles when you descend.

The Metro

There are just three lines on the Milan metro and it is quite user friendly.

M1 is red, goes west-north from Fiera Milano to Sesto 1 Maggio FS and is useful for tourist attractions.

M2 is green, goes south west-east from Assago Milanofiori Forum to Gessate and passes through Milan Central Station.

M3 is yellow, goes south-north from San Donato to Comasina and includes the Duomo.

Taxis

Taxis are rather expensive in Milan especially at rush hour and, given the traffic, may not get you to your destination any quicker than public transport. If you really can’t stand rubbing shoulders with the natives call Taxi Blu on 02 4040 or Taxi Yellow on 02 6969.

Cycling

Many Milanese cycle around the city and you can do the same of you like. There are various bike rental points with a day’s hire costing around 10 euros. Of course, this being Italy, there are also scooters to hire, for those who prefer to live fast and die young.
