I really enjoy riding these buses to visit Milan. It is the best way with small kids because they get tired easily. Drivers and guides were very awesome. One blond French woman was amazingly friendly and useful. I really liked it and I will recommend it all year around. I was afraid it would be too cold, we were there during Christmas holiday but with a hat and a good coat, it was comfy.

The day was rainy, so the bus trip was ideal. It goes through several iconic points of Milan and the audio gives context to what is observed. The time between buses seems long to me (1 hour) compared to others I've used in other cities, but it seems that all companies have this same time in Milan.

I was the escort of 12 boys. I am from Milan and therefore facilitated. On the website I could not find a timetable with the various stops. We arrived by train in Cadorna. We went to the Cairoli stop. The QR code sent you to a generic site. We could not find the passage times Then we went to the stop at the Duomo. Scheduled time at booking 1030. Time on table 1040. I think of a real tourist.
