It is simply impossible to "catch" a taxi on the road in Milan. In order to get one you need to move closer to any transportation stop. Local drivers just do not stop their cars in the wrong place.
Travelling by subway is very convenient in the city. All stations are located close to each other and there are exits close to all major attractions. Tickets for travelling are available at any newsstand or in special vending machines located next to each station.
Those, who want to save money on food, are recommended to go to one of the "Autogrill" coffeehouses for lunch. Here meals are served in a buffet and there are always dishes to suit all tastes at affordable prices. These cafes do not work on evenings.
Large part of interesting shops and supermarkets are located outside the city, so shoppers should not limit themselves to the urban boutiques only.
