Milan has an easy-to-use, integrated public transportation system run by Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM) that includes four metro lines (with a fifth under construction), trams and buses, with a ticket costing 1.50 euros for a 90-minute ride on the trams and buses or one metro ride (changes included). It’s also possible to purchase a day pass for 4.50 euros.
If you’re staying outside of the historic centre or want to visit one of the outer neighbourhoods and attractions, you’ll likely make use of the metro or the tram. Otherwise, the historic centre—where you'll find plenty of bars, restaurants and well-known shops—is easily walkable, and often walking takes the same amount of time as, or is faster than, taking public transport.
