In Milan is very easy to go around with public transport. The Hotel is located next to the Train Central Station which is on the yellow and green line of the subway (Stop: “centrale”).
The Duomo is on the yellow subway line, (“duomo” stop, you would have guessed) and main event location Università Cattolica is on the green line (“Sant’ambrogio” stop, now this you wouldn’t have).
At night after 12AM cabs or heetch are feasible but depending on where we go also trams are very efficient by night.
There are several skyscrapers in Milan , I am sure there will be no issue in asking for a spot there, the cost of it is to take each one of us from Milan Hub for a Milan helicopter Tour.
