The public transport in Milan is well organised and very common. It is managed by the ATM company.

There are 3 lines for the metro, 19 tram and 97 bus : M1 = red line  (Duomo, San Babila, Castle…)

M2= green line ( Station Centrale, Station Garibaldi, San’t Ambrogio…)

M3 = yellow line (Duomo, Station Centrale, Montenapoleone…) and an others line of train which goes in the peripheria.


The metro works from 6 to 00,30 every day, the tram from 4,30/6 to 1,00/2,30 and the bus from 5,30/6 to 00,30/1,45. There are two buses which goes all night long : the 90 and the 91 (review public transport by night). At all stations there arelots of metro and buses and tram, you can see how long you will have to wait for the next one. in the metro, they even say every half a minute! They are quite accurate.

On week-end’s night, the bus has the same schedule as the metro and there are also other lines of bus available (see review public transport at night).

One ticket costs €1,50 and is valid for 90 minutes. You can take the bus, the metro and/or the tram with the same ticket.

Be careful if you want to go a little further than Milan (for example to the fair in Rho),  you will have to buy the ticket “interurbani” which price depends on how far you are going.

If you are in Milan for a few days, you might want to buy a 24h hours’ ticket or other pass.

You can also use their website to see which transport you have to take to go from one point to another at a determined time and how long it will take.

On a another hand, there is also a service of Bike sharing: you can rent bikes to go from station to station. You can buy an subscription for a day, a week or a month. More info on how this works can be found here!

Clarisse- I’m a 23 year-old Parisian who studies in a Business School in France. After a semester in Milan as an exchange student, I decided to work there because I loved living there. I now know Milan very well, as I love just wandering in the streets and discovering new things. It is a very dynamic city and there are a lot of places which deserved to be seen. That’s why I wanted to share my experience with you. Also because I love traveling and when I’m in a city abroad I always wonder where would go the locals. So I'll try and advise you the bests spots to be ! What else you might want to know about me? Well, I love fashion and I’m quite gourmet so I’ll recommend you fine restaurants and bars to do the famous aperitivo and to eat the Italian specialties. As I like doing lots of different activities, I try and be informed about what's new so I'll do my best to keep you updated. 😉 Hope you'll find everything you need and have fun!
