TraMilano – The historical Tram of Milan
TraMilano is a city tour on the famous and historic tram line n.1 and you will make an historical tram ride!
Tram was one of the first means of transport of Milan and it is still now an iconic, a symbol of the city. Since the early 1900s, the trams have been transporting locals and visitors around the city and with this hop on hop off tour you can combine the experience of riding down the vintage tramway with a city sightseeing tour of Milan.
Horse-drawn trams were the first to be used up to the end of 1800, then, with the discovery of electricity, all local lines were electrified, and the horses were not used anymore.
On December 31st, 1898, the electric-powered tram network reached a total length of 61.686 meters.
Tram n. 1 is characterized by wooden furniture, lamps with decorated glasses and the typical noise of iron wheels along the tracks.
You will visit Milan onboard a vehicle with over 100 years of history that has been used by various generations of citizens.
Completely different from a modern tram, you will find on Tram n.1: wooden benches (instead of plastic chairs!) placed along the sides of the vehicle, wooden steps to get on board, an automatic special get off system (that was innovative at the beginning of the ‘900), typical folding doors and sash windows.
This Tram tour Milano is going to be an unique experience! Before getting off, admire the driver’s seat made of wood and brass, a great spectacle!
