Hop Onto The CiaoMilano! Trams and Busses Review

For a first-time visitor to Milan, don't forget to hop onto a typical Milanese tram called CiaoMilano for a wonderful sightseeing experience.

The tram departs daily, at 11am, 1pm and 3pm from Piazza Castello.

(Note: From November to March = No tram rides at 3pm).

The tour should last approximately 2 hours and this very same ticket also allows you to get off the tram for a walk and then get on the next one.

Tickets? No worries, you can buy them as you board the tram.

Kewl cab - Milan

Ciao, Mr Taxi Driver... Taxi's Review

Sadly... and speaking from experience, cabs are not very easy to flag down on the streets of Milan. They just don't do it here.

What's the best thing to do for a tourist?

Well, I'd advise you to go to a cab stand or call for a radio taxi. On rainy days and during the Fiera Milano (expo center) where big events are held, it is IMPOSSIBLE to get a cab! Oh, and please remember that when calling for a radio taxi, the meter starts running as soon as the driver gets the call!

The most memorable cab fare I've paid for here in Milan?

Approx. €70 from Milan city center to Malpensa International Airport to catch my international flight home to Singapore. Sadly, there are no direct flights to Singapore. Direct flights to Singapore are only via Roma.

So my favored route would be Milan to Frankfurt on Lufthansa; and then from Frankfurt to Singapore on Singapore Airlines, of course.

HOT TIP: Many radio taxi dispatchers don't speak English. So please ensure that you learn a few choice Italian words and pronounce them clearly and carefully. Some radio dispatchers do speak a little English and if you're lucky enough, they'll pick your call!
