Milan metro map
I always use the metro in Milan rather than buses or trams, guess it is faster.
The metro here is quiet efficient, there are only 3 main lines: the Red line, the Green one and the Yellow one
I suggest using it if you are tourists or business men to avoid expensive taxies
Discover Milan using two different tour routes! See all the main sights aboard an open-top double-decker bus and with 12 stops to choose from you can hop-on and hop-off all around the city.
You can hop-on and off as many times as you like aboard this open-top double-decker bus. The two tour routes are inter-connected so you can hop easily between them.
Discover Milan using two tour routes. Your ticket is valid on ALL routes.
The entire route takes 75 minutes. Buses departs every 75 minutes from each stop. Highlights include Sforzesco's Castle, Piazza Duomo and the Scala Theater
The entire route takes 90 minutes. Buses departs every 45 minutes from each stop. Highlights include Via Montenapoleone, the Cenacolo of Leonardo da Vinci, and much more
Typical old Milan tram
Peter Witt was a Cleveland Railway commissioner, who designed a model of streetcar, which is known by his name, and was used in many North American cities, most notably in Toronto and Cleveland. Peter Witt cars were also built in Italy and used in several Italian cities, including Milan, where 200 Ventotto (‘twenty-eight’) vehicles (introduced in 1928) are still in use up to this day. Additionally eleven ex-Milan cars can be seen today on the streets of San Francisco, where they operate on the F Market & Wharves streetcar line.
ATMosfera: the new Tram-Restaurant with the ATM number where you will be able to enjoy an exclusive dinner in a very unusual setting; and where class, sophistication and elegance will accompany you on your discovery tour of the enchanting Milan by night.
An Orient Express- style colonial atmosphere provides the background for a romantic dinner, a business meal or just an evening with a difference where you can taste particular dishes, some of which belonging to Milan tradition, prepared by internationally renowned chefs
Me at Malpensa
Milan Malpensa Airport has two terminals
Terminal 1 is the larger of the two terminals. It handles most domestic and international flights.
Terminal 2 is mostly for charter flights plus a few international services.
To get to Malpensa by Car :
Access roads from Milan are A8, A26. A new road is planned linking the A4 Milan-Turin highway to Milan's western ring road.
Journey time is around 45-50 minutes but can be longer at peak times.
Other Contact: Distance from city: 48 km (30 mi

A "new" Milan-tram
New Milan-Trams are called "Eurotram", in services on line 14 to Lorenteggio headline (south-west) and in Orefici street in services on line 14 to "Cimitero Maggiore" headline (south-west).
Series 7001/7026 are building between 1999 and 2002 by AdTranz constructor raicars. Today are in services 20 units on line 14
Buses are quiet efficient in Milan, the only thing is, since they are "Italian" buses, they are never punctual!! Milan's public transport is surprisingly good and pretty cheap compared to other major cities in Europe. You can buy a ticket for €1 (at a news stand or bar, not in a tram or bus!) that will take you as far as you can go within 75 minutes by metro, tram or bus.
Just be aware that when you change from tram or bus to metro you'll need a new ticket while when you change from metro to tram or bus you don't. If you have to travel every day you're better off buying a "carnet" (a booklet of 10 tickets) for €9.20, or a weekly or monthly pass.
Oh and ticket checks on busses and trams are rare, but when you get caught without a valid ticket it'll set you back €34 (€33 + the price of one ticket).
