    Another way to get around Milan is the so-called 'sight-seeing tram': it is an old tram cab converted for touristic use. It runs around the city and cost 15 euros ... I think it could be worthy of cause you can also have some explanation by headphones.

    Bus/Tram Tickets

    by El.Tigre Written Jun 10, 2010

    A 1 euro ticket will give you 75 minutes unlimted access to Milan's bus and tram network. Plus one trip on the metro.

    Remember to stamp your ticket when you get on the bus/tram.

    Buy your tickets from the machines in the metro which have the option to change language and buy a whole bunch at a time, or from newspaper kiosks or tabachis.

    You can also buy a 10 journey ticket, known as a rnet for about 9.60.

    Milan's iconic trams can be spotted more or less everywhere. The city's traffic planners were smart enough not to do away with the tram tracks in the early 70s. In that period, the high cost of electricity and the fact that space on the streets seemed plentiful for the few cars that circulated at that time prompted almost every council, from Rome to Catania, to remove the tracks and get rid of trams.

    Milan has proudly kept its trams, and they can be heard clonking in almost every corner. While the tracks are hazardous if you cycle (Milanese do!), trams are an invaluable and picturesque way to go around the city.

    The standard fare is one euro for a single trip.

    useful !?!?

    by KOGU Written Jul 6, 2004

    This tram may be very efficient to move around Milano... if you know well the map of Milano and if you luckily do not face frequent strikes... It seems like everyone gets on it without payment. Employees should consider the collection system once before coming out !

    Bus 73 will take you quickly into the city center (Piazza San Babila).
    There you'll find the subway.

    40 minutes
