Information on tickets, operating hours, lines


Children under 14 travel free of charge.
There are several types of tickets:

  1. Single ticket, valid 90 minutes € 2,20
  2. 24-hour pass € 7,60
  3. Ticket valid for 3 days from the date of validation: €15,50
    The ticket is valid until the end of the public transport service on the third day, i.e., at 03:45 a.m. (not at midnight). 
    For example: the Thursday service closes at 03.45 a.m. on Friday. So, if you stamp your ticket at 00:01 am on Friday, you are still actually travelling on the Thursday transport service day, not the Friday one.
  4. 10-ticket pass: it cannot be used by more than one person at a time € 19,50

The ticket can be used with no limitation on buses, trams, underground lines and on the urban tracks of the suburban trains (Passante Ferroviario); it must be validated at the beginning of the journey and at any transportation change.
