The price of the tickets for a single person you can find here:
There are ticket vending machines in each metro station, you can also buy an SMS ticket or buy a ticket on the machine right after you get on the tram. The good news is it is possible to pay by credit card in most of the machines already so there is no need to have cash! You can buy the ticket also from some tobacconists or wholesalers.
Be aware after purchasing the ticket (this is not valid for the new machines in the trams as per the picture above) you need to validate it in some of the yellow validating machines installed in bus, trams and the entrance to the underground.
