A trip to Italy is on most people’s to-do lists and if you are lucky enough to plan your own trip there, you should make sure to do it right. Milan is one of Italy’s biggest and brightest cities. Keep reading for some tips on figuring out how to travel on the city’s convenient public transportation system:
Taking the Metro
Milan’s subway system is small but it is effective. With only three lines, it is pretty simple to find your desired destination and plan out the best route to get there. If you are just starting out on your trip, talk to the concierge at your hotel about the easiest way to get to your desired destinations. Make sure to buy a ticket before you get on the subway, though, because the city does have police officers patrolling the stations.
Getting the Tram
The tram in Milan is actually a bigger system than the subway and has 19 different lines. The tram provides quick and easy transportation options wherever you are in the city. If you are looking at a map of the city, the tramlines are numbered 1-33. As long as you know the number of the tram you need and a list of stops for which you are looking, you can easily navigate the tram system.
Riding the Buses
With a bus system that spans the city, you never need to splurge on a taxi to get where you need to go. The system is very similar to other big cities. If you are not staying near a Metro or a tram station, there are 79 different bus lines throughout the city to give you a ride.
