    Paris Transportation

    The Paris Metro (or subway) is a great way to get around Paris. There are sixteen lines and is quite easy to navigate. The Metro is a clean and fast form of transportation when visiting Paris. Metro Stations are also works of art with exterior and interior artistic décor and design. I have always felt safe using this mode of transportation but...

    Amsterdam Transportation

    Riding bicycle is the #1 form of transportation in Amsterdam especially if you don't want to explore the city on foot. I would recommend that you rent a bicycle from one of the many locations throughout the city for the day or for the duration of your stay. Some of the places to rent are in the Central Station, Leidseplein and Dam Square for...

    Barcelona Transportation

    The Metro System in Barcelona works well. It doesn't get you to every area you may want to see so there might be a bit of walking you will still have to do. We probably used the metro once or twice in a day. So, we did not buy a loaded metro pass. We just bought tickets as needed. A single ticket in 2015 cost 2.15€. Keep in mind the time frame it...

    I was impressed with the efficiency of the Metro in Athens. It's too bad that the metro isn't extended longer in different directions. It was clean and easy to access, easy to understand where the exits and entrances were and which line you need to get on. Because we stayed at a hotel in Glyfada. We had to take a taxi to the nearest Metro station....

    Travelling around Prague by public transport really couldn't be easier. If you are staying for four nights like I was, it's a good idea to purchase a 72 hour ticket for 310 CZK. I bought my ticket from the information desk at the main railway station (Hlavni nadrazi) on my first full day in the city. It is important to validate the ticket in one of...

    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...
