“Must see Duomo Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Only 2 1/2 hours train ride from Venice, take a short metro bus ride from the train station to city's centerpiece is the Duomo Cathedral, the fourth largest church in Europe, take it free tour inside the cathedral and walk around the Galleria next to the Cathedral.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Dont waste your time on this one, just told to leave one bus to get on another only to find that bus full and to wait another 45 minutes for another one. Open top, hot day and we are going no where fast!!! Rather watch paint dry

“OK way to get around the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Booked tickets before we went so saved quite a bit of money on what we would have paid buying tickets on the day. 2 of the pick up points were handy for our hotel but the 45 minute gap between buses is too long. Also the timetable provided is too difficult to work out as it does not list actual times, meaning you have to work out pick up times. The 2 routes go to the main sites and its handy being able to hop on and off the bus and save your feet from walking. Commentary was not that great and we stopped listening after a while. The Milan metro system is pretty good and cheap if you buy a day ticket and we'd use this next time rather than this bus.

“Very disappointing, unlike all other city bus tours we've taken”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

The Milan City Sightseeing bus tour was almost zero value for the price. All other city bus tours we've taken have been excellent, but this one covers very few interesting neighborhoods/sites, and the audio commentary is _horrible_ (often just music, and when there is commentary, it's not interesting).
The only benefit was that it's hop-on-hop-off, so we could get off in a different neighborhood, tour around on foot, then hop back on to head back to the starting point.
Milan has plenty of beautiful sites to see - save your money and visit them on foot.

“Hop on hop off bus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

A good way to good an overview of old and new Milan. They have two routes, and only offer a 48 hour ticket. A good change over stop for the two routes is either the Duomo or stp #1.Once you have an overview its best to leave the bus and visit the sights on foot. The buses come back every 45 minutes and you can hop back on. Doesn't get to all the sights, and the met is a cheap and qyuick way to get around. Actually the 45 minutes betwen the buses is a bit long, so I took the Met for Euro1.5 to get back to hotel.
