The nearest public transportation stops to Bocconi University are the trams stops of “Porta Lodovica” (tram line 15) and “Bligny Lodovica” (tram line 9).

 

If you use public transportation, the fare for 1 ticket (duration 75 minutes) is €1.50. Tickets can be bought in most shops where you see the "T" sign above the door (T stands for Tabaccheria) or at newspaper stalls on the streets. If you are using the underground, tickets can also be bought at machines near the turnstiles. Tickets cannot be bought onboard. Please remember that the tickets must be inserted in the ticket machines on board / at turnstiles and validated. Ticket controls are frequent and fines for not validating tickets are heavy.
