  • Métro

    Paris Transportation

    My suggestion for people visiting Paris, is to avoid metro if all possible. Especially in summer times when it is hot using the metro can be tiring and unpleasant experience. First none of the metro almost has air conditioning. It is very crowded especially late nights. Can be very difficult with children. You will not be able to enjoy the city...

  • Oyster Cards / Travelcards

    London Transportation

    London's underground is the most expensive in the world but you'll use it anyway because it can get you almost everywhere. If you make more than 3 tube trips or 4 bus trips a day then you'd better buy a travelcard – daily(cannot ride the tubes before 9 a.m or use the night buses) or weekly. There are six zones in the metro so you need a different...

  • Metro-Bus-Tram

    Rome Transportation

They announce every stops but only...

  • To / From Airport

    Barcelona Transportation

    When there is not a taxi strike, the best way in to town is a regular taxi. When there is a taxi strike, or if you are looking to save money, the bus seems to be the best alternative, as pre-paid taxis are expensive and, in the case of the City-Airport prepaid taxi, it does not show up during a two hour search, does not answer repeated pages on the...

  • Trams

    Amsterdam Transportation

    If you want to travel by tram or bus in Amsterdam the first thing to do is to read the information in Dutch and English on the website of the GVB is the public transportation company for Amsterdam. You will also find maps of all transports. On the home page you will find a TOURIST GUIDE with valuable info. I show here what is most...

  • Vaporetto

    Venice Transportation

    Venice efficient vaporetto boat shuttle system is easy to use and understand. If you intend to travel a lot during your stay, a tourist ticket can be bought for various periods of time. As the single tickets are rather expensive, the dayticket option - with unlimited vaporetto rides during the chosen timeframe - is usually the best for a visitor....

  • Airport - Transportation to Copenhagen...

    Copenhagen Transportation

    When arriving to Copenhagen I chose to take the train to the city since my hotel was just across the main train station. I bought my ticket in the automatic machine, you can choose the language. The journey took me about 20 min which was great because I really wanted to get to the hotel as soon as possible after almost 10 hrs of flying.

  • Bus,tram&Metro

    Vienna Transportation

    Vienna has a fairly small but useful subway system known as the U-Bahn (an abbreviation of Untergrundbahn, meaning underground railway). There are five lines, somewhat confusingly numbered 1,2,3,4 and 6 – no one seems to know what happened to line 5! Lines 1 and 3 are perhaps most useful to the tourist, as they cross the city centre, but you may...

  • Public Transportation

    Stockholm Transportation

    Stockholm has an excellent public transport system, including the subway (T-Bana), buses, trams, and even boats. UPDATED Fares as of June 2014: SL has a complicated fare system involving "units" or "coupons." Travel within 1 zone (see a T-Bana Zone map to view the zones) requires the use of 2 "units," while travel among 2 and 3 zones costs 3 and...

  • By Bus

    Florence Transportation

    Florence is a great walking city, but sometimes you need a little help. You can catch the orange ATAF buses for trips around the city that are just too long to walk (or if the weather is really atrocious!). They are easy to use – simply purchase your ticket from one of the newspaper vendors around town (you can purchase tickets on board but they...

  • Metro

    Lisbon Transportation

    Just wanted to advise other VT travellers to Lisbon that the way out of the Baixa-Chiado metro station involves 4 very long sets of escalators and a flight of stairs. Good idea to take the lift even if you have no luggage. Plus, just wanted to mention, it appeared, that some escalators, around Lisbon, stop working if nobody use them for a length...

  • To and From Dublin Airport

    Dublin Transportation

    I am really impressed by these folks. They have a ticket counter right in front of the airport and are really friendly. You can buy online before, at this ticket counter or from the driver at any stop. I bought it from the counter when I arrived and had some time before my bus was due to leave. The gentleman at the counter offered to hold my bags...

  • Barajas airport

    Madrid Transportation

    One of the simplest and cheapest ways to get to Madrid central from the airport is take the metro. A single trip was 5 Euro. The airport line is line 8. Once on the train, go to the end of the line (Nuevos Ministerios). Travel time is about 17 from the airport to Nuevos Ministerios. Then take other lines depending on where you're heading off to.

  • Public Transportation

    Munich Transportation

    Munich has one of the best and easiest-to-use public transport systems in Europe. While you can buy single tickets and "stripe tickets" (see the MVV website), the best deal for most tourists is to purchase a day card. Many of the newer ticket machines allow you to chose a date (e.g., today) to be printed on your ticket, which means it doesn't need...

    Palma de Mallorca Transportation

    Whilst I was planning our trip I looked up different modes of transfer options, the taxis are really expensive as are the hopper buses. The Palma number 1 airport bus was 2.50euro per person and was an excellent and reliable service every 15 minutes. On arrival you walk out of arrivals the bus stop is well signposted and easy to get to. Save a bit...

  • Metro

    Athens Transportation

    On 29/1/2000 Athenians met for the first day their metro system, a big project which was finally true after enough years of patience... The reconstructions brought to light parts of the city that had been hidden, most of the stations are mini-museums! Two new lines were added to the old one, Piraeus-Kifisia: line 2 (Anthoupoli - Helliniko) and...

    The easiest and the quickiest way to get to Malpensa airport, and vice versa, is by the city train express. This is Stazione Cadorna, the train station from where the train starts to Malpensa and vice versa, where the train is coming from the airport. The station is situated on Piazza Cadorna, you can't miss it coz there is a giant needle and...

    Moscow Transportation

    I was quite surprised to see people internet-surfing in our metro. I though they are super-rich and went mobile, but no, it turned out that the Moscow metro had installed Wi-Fi! My red line (that’s not what you think, it’s the colour on the map) is # 1 here, too. The other pioneering line is the brown circular (# 5). And by the end of 2014 Wi-Fi...

    Santorini Island Transportation

    First things – first. The Bus Station does not look like a Bus Station. It is just a big parking area for the busses in Fira. It is just South of the main Square and on a one-way side street. Schedules are in English and posted to the right-hand side near where the benches are to sit on. Most routes are served every hour or half-hour from 7am to...

    Tallinn Transportation

    To reach tallinn from Helsinki take the ferry which will drop you at destination in just two comfortable hours. It's best to book online but we saw plenty of people just buying tickets 40 minutes before the ferry was due to leave. It's cheap and comfortable.

  • Trains

    Warsaw Transportation

    We took the train frm Krakow to Warsaw as all the locals told us not to take the bus. We decided to travel first class as second class is over full almost and when you have a bit of luggage, it is a great problem. It was worth the extra zloty that we paid. Much more comfortable and spacious and also not so full.

  • Bus, tram, metro

    Antwerp Transportation

    The city has trams and buses for getting around town. You can buy a pack of 10 tickets for 7 euro and are good for a set period of time. On weekends the trams run an hour later at night and tie into the night buses which a couple run until 3:30. I thought it was interesting that while some trams run along major streets where there is plenty of...

    Manchester Transportation

    Manchester's Metrolink is probably the easiest way to get around the various locations in Manchester although it is not always that reliable and is quite expensive. In the Winter the tram service can be a little scetchy especially if there has been a lot of snow and ice. When it was first opened the Metrolink didn't cover very much area but it has...

    Verona Transportation

    To get to Verona I took the EuroCity train from Munich via Innsbruck. This is a convenient connection, several times daily, with good mountain views along the way. Second photo: The dining car is fine for having a cup of coffee and using one of the big tables to write on, but I can't honestly recommend having a meal here. Third photo: The main...

  • Geneva Airport Train Station

    Geneva Transportation

    On arrival at Geneva airport, the simplest way to get to the city centre is use the train. It seems that every train from the airprot, travels for 6 minutes and then arrives at Geneva Railway station. There are automnated ticket machines, and a one way ticket is reasonably cheap, and at the time of writing it was around 3 ChF.

    Glasgow Transportation

    I normally prefer to walk around Glasgow on a warm sunny day, but sometimes the rain can arrive unexpectedly making more sheltered transport desirable. The Subway is an excellent way to travel around Glasgow, although the route is only circular, it crosses the River Clyde twice and stations always connect with city bus routes for onward travel,...

    A few VTers have said they have no problem taking a subway or metro but they find buses too difficult. While I can understand their concerns, Sevilla's bus system is well laid out and inexpensive. Sevilla's bus system is run by Tussam, a local company. Tussam operates about 40 daily bus routes and a tram line. Once we learned how they worked it...

OK, that's easy...

    I arrived in Innsbruck on a EuroCity train from Verona, and left twenty-four hours later on the same train bound for Munich. The journey took three and a half hours from Verona to Innsbruck, over the Brenner Pass, and not quite two hours from Innsbruck to Munich, going down the Inn Valley most of the way. These are not the most modern trains in...

    Split is well served by both local and intercity buses, and the station is very central, right next to the station and ferry port. You can buy tickets there, and the office is open late even on weekends, although it seemed to shut randomly for a quick "pauze" at inopportune moments. The buses here run to major Balkan destinations, like Zagreb,...
