Tram and metropolitana are the modes of transport most utilized in the city and offer a valid alternative to cars.
Milan has three metropolitana (subway) lines, M1 Red line, M2 Green line and M3 Yellow line, that connect the city with the hinterland.
The areas of interest to tourists are well serviced. For example, it is only four stops from Stazione Centrale (Central Station) to Piazza Duomo which are connected by the M3 yellow line, allowing you to arrive quickly and directly in the heart of the city. The M1 red line, on the other hand, makes it possible to travel to the new fair centre of Milan from the centre of the city, without the hassle of using a car.
It is also possible to purchase a “customised” ticket according to one’s own needs, including the single trip ticket, the ten-trip carnet ticket for those using the metropolitan occasionally and the tourist pass for anyone wishing to explore the city in depth. For those that need to travel between neighbouring municipalities and the Lombard capital, tickets increase in cost according to the distance to be travelled.
