What people are saying about Bosco Verticale
This is a great experience. I just wish it would have listed the pick up from the train station on the first spot. Instead it listed one that was closer to downtown. I loved that the bus was open air on top and it dropped off in great locations for all the things I wanted to see. Great price too. Also a little thing that would have made it a little easier would be if the stops were called out in English as well.
Once found was excellent
Please don't make the same mistake I made trying to find the office with the map I was given when purchasing the tickets. Go to the Milan Visitor Center. We looked for two hours and was given 20 different places from the locals. Next time I will ask for a address. By the time we found the hop on hop off stop we could only use it for one day and purchased a two day ticket.
The tour was very pleasant and comfortable. Everything went very well, from the purchase in the app, voucher on the cell phone, punctual times, locations of points and comfort of the buses.
I think this option is great for you. Have a bus available to visit the main tourist points of a city. And being able to embark and disembark as many times as you want.
Thanks to "Corona", Milan was not overcrowded. So the whole stay was very relaxed. The tour was informative and not boring at all.
