Milan Next Week: Some Questions

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Milan for 8 days (1/29-2/7) and, contrary to what conventional wisdom seems to be (!), in my research I've found plenty to do to fill up 5 days (museums, street markets, shopping and wandering). But I have a few questions that I'm sure Fodorites can help with!

1) If a buy a weekly travel card (for about 11 euros), does that include buses & trams in addition to the metro? Couldn't find a specific reference so want to check since I'll be taking both.
2) I remember being very flustered in Rome by the process in bakeries/cafes to order & pay for items (I don't speak Italian). I'm planning on going to Princi, in addition to other similar spots, and have read that I have to pay first, then go to the counter to get my items. In other countries, I wait in line at the bakery case, point to what I want and then pay the lady which works fine. I really want to enjoy some of Milan's pasticceria but I to be a clueless tourist. Any tips?
3) I'm planning on 2 or 3 day trips via train that are within 1 hour of Milan and identified Brescia, Bergamo or Pavia. I like to wander around old areas, go into a church or two, have lunch and see any famous sites. In reading about these 3 towns, they all sound very similar but there are often gems that don't make it into guide books or travel sites, so am looking for any opinions or suggestions. (Will do Bologna on a different trip since I'd want to spend more time there and in Ravenna.) Parma?

I appreciate any input - thanks!
