Metropolitana Milanese! Subway/Metro Review

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

Typical old Milan tram - Milan

Typical old Milan tram

The oldest trams in Europe! Trams and Busses Review

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.

Buses and Trams around Milan Trams and Busses Review

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).
