Use the local tram to travel across the old city of Milan - very inexpensive and charming old vehicles

Take the old tram that the locals use to see Milan from a different angle. You can buy a ticket for a few euros from a tabac and have 90 minutes of travel, getting on and off as... read more

1920s rolling stock offers charm and comfort around Milan. Lovely wooden bench seats polished by mille bottoms ensure all aboard are in a good mood. Not offered on all lines but if you were smart and bought a day ticket at any of the metro stations then don't miss the opportunity to jump aboard and enjoy the ride.

I visited Milan more than 10 times and liked the metro system very much. Last time I took a tram for first time in this city... and last time. The issue is that having a right ticket (24 hours), I did not stamped it correctly. Not sure, but possibly because the scanner inside the tram just did not work properly.... More

Back in July I had a spare evening away from my business schedule and I really wanted to go down town from my hotel near the trade exhibition halls and stroll around the cathedral area. The concierge suggested that I either get a taxi or be just that little more adventurous and take the tram. So, for the princely figure... More

Hi, do the trams in Milan operate 24 hours or do they have a last tram? We are staying near Milan Central train station and want to spend our first night at some bars in the centre unless anyone can suggest any good bars around the station?

When I bought this ticket, I gave error on the site (located in London). I received a weblink to confirm my purchase, but I gave up. Then, when I was traveling, it appeared discount on my Visa VTM, but never got any voucher. Even without voucher, I sought information in the Milan Central Station and in surrounding area, but no...

There is a lot of confllcting information about trams in Milan. Asking questions via Trip Advisor helped me get answers from persons who had already traveled to Milan. We were concerned about tickets since we were arriving late on a Sunday 2016. Trip Advisor travelers told us we could locate Tram tickets in the train station. Thanks

Coming from a city with no trams it is always fun to explore a city by the cheap and cheerful trams in cities that do have them. The only hard part is getting a map of Milan that shows the tram routes, as the tourist offices don't have them, only some of the ATM offices in the larger Metro stations.... More

We visited Milan in early November, unfortunately in the middle of what seemed like a monsoon season. When we first caught sight of one of the old trams we assumed that it was a tourist one, but no - it was one of many in regular public service on lines 1, 19 and 23. We were lucky in that our...

We got our 24 hour tram ticket from our hotel reception and that was easy. Hopped on the tram on a very cold afternoon in Milan and enjoyed the tour of Milan. Not sure where we were going and obviously we travelled with lots of locals who along with some tourists were getting caught for not having a ticket. There... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
