Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 4 reviews

Really useful to have this, made getting round the city very easy - I used the Metro as this was the easiest/most convenient. Also helped give some ideas of things to go & see when I struggled to know what to do whilst saving me money overall, compared to if I had paid for every entry to a museum

With the help of the free transport card we could use the buses on rainy days as a variation on the Hop-on-hop-off buses. We looked up places of interest and then took a bus that would pass there. In terms of museums, the offer could have been a bit more varied.

It's worth seeing :) but I recommend the morning hours because there are crowds later

Excellent. We couldn't use all the adventages the card provided.

Excellent solution for traveling throughout the city
