We had a magnificent time travelling around Milan on the trams but please please be aware to validate your ticket when you board any tram. It's very simple to do, just pop it in the ticket machine and it puts a code on your ticket. There are regular ticket inspectors patrolling the network and will instantly fine you approx.€40 per person if you haven't validated your ticket.. we saw this on 4 occasions in 3 days so be very aware.. Trust us, it's simple to do and Milan is a stunning city. We also travelled to lake como 30mins by train away and fell in love with the place, train fair was €16.

This is a huge scam for tourists. Me and my partner had bought two all day ticket from the metro station. It was our first trip on the tram and not really sure what we were doing we asked a ticket inspector for advice to check we were getting the right tram and that our tickets were okay for where we needed to go. He told us we were on the right side of the road, our tickets were fine and that it was 20 minutes away. We got on the tram and he also got on when it arrived. One stop in he asked to see our tickets again which we thought was odd. Straight away he said we had not validated our tickets and that we were being fined 36€ (you are suppose to stamp your tickets every trip- he could have told us if he actually wanted to help but he was actually waiting to fine us). We protested he should have told us and we were not paying so he made us get off at the next stop with him and another ticket inspector turned up. They also insisted we paid the 36€ fine or we had to hand over our passports (which we didn’t actually have on us). We continued arguing for 15 minutes and my girlfriend actually got quite upset as it was fining us our allowance for the day but they didn’t seem to care more robot than human. Anyway a third ticket inspector then turned up and he signalled a passing police car to pull over which they did. At this point I decided to pay the €36 euros each as the police agreed it was what we needed to do and they weren’t giving up. It was a very unpleasant experience and just a total money making tourist scam.

While waiting for the tram to arrive, we searched for the ticket machines and for any signs about tickets, of which there were none to be found. We had 5€ on us and we asked the tram driver how we pay, showed him the 5€ note. (The journey was €1.50 each). He beckoned us onto the tram. We did as we were advised assuming we could pay on the tram, or perhaps like some other European cities, transport was free if you stayed in the city or something. Low and behold, multiple officers got on the tram and asked for tickets. They ushered us off the tram when we tried to pay. Asked us for our ID and told us to pay €35 each. We explained exactly what had happened which was 100% the truth, that we had asked the driver how to pay and that he had beckoned us into the tram. No matter what we said, it didn’t matter. He was chatting and laughing with his colleagues in Italian over me while I was trying to explain our situation to him. This infuriated me further of course! I asked him why the tram driver didn’t tell us we had to pay first, or even tell us vaguely how to get tickets. He said the tram driver is paid to drive and nothing more. The truth...it’s a big scam to catch tourists out! Disgusted with this behaviour towards tourists! In most cities it’s fairly obvious how to get a ticket for the tram, I’m fairly sure they make plenty of money out of tourists here by it being so difficult to get tickets without knowing how. (Tobacco stores/underground stations) You would think if you ask someone how to buy tickets, they could give you some advice, not just beckon you onto the train knowing full well we would be fined and then have driven off before we could be prove our case that he allowed us on knowing we didn’t have a ticket. Feels very like a legal government driven scam to me!
