Preparing your trip to Milan: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Castello Sforzesco (Piazza Castello - Milan) 1. The most popular means of transport are subway and buses. By using them you can easily get to any place of interest in the city. It should be noted that buses here stop not at all stops. You will need to raise your hand to stop the bus.
2. The majority of religious attractions are not allowed to be visited by tourists during service and lunch break, so before you go you should definitely clarify the convenient time for visiting the shrine of your choice.
3. It’s recommended to leave tips in local restaurants and cafes. The amount of a tip is usually 10% of the total bill. Tips are also welcome in a taxi, but in this case it’s common to round the price up to any convenient amount.
4. The majority of restaurants, banks and other institutions are closed during the daytime – from about 14.00 to 16.00. This is the time the locals call "siesta". It is also recommended to refrain from phone calls during the time of rest.
5. 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. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. 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.
7. 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.
Do you think that the only things that Milan can offer to travelers are numerous historical buildings and incredibly high prices in local boutiques? These aspects, indeed, can surprise, but … Open
8. Large part of interesting shops and supermarkets are located outside the city, so shoppers should not limit themselves to the urban boutiques only.
