Your City Break Transport Guide

Your City Break Transport Guide

Like any other trip, city breaks are amazing and the lead up to them is so exciting – but one of the most daunting things about visiting a new place is how you are going to find your way around. But don’t worry, we have you covered. Here is our city break transport guide for some of our favourite destinations.

Paris

Why not take a stroll around beautiful Paris? Or if walking is not for you there are plenty of other transport options to choose from. One of the most common ways to travel around Paris is on the metro. You can pretty much get within a couple blocks of anywhere you want to go and it runs from 5am to 12:30am. Tickets for tourists can be bought at the ticket booth in the station by 1-day, 2-day, 3-day or 5-day. As well as the RER, the buses and taxis, you can travel around (the majority of) Paris on a boat. The Batobus runs up and down the seine with eight stops including the Champs Elysées, Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Musée d’Orsay, Hôtel de Ville, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Notre Dame, and Jardin des Plantes. This is a great option for a sunny day.

Amsterdam

There are many ways to travel around Amsterdam. Famously the humble bicycle is a great mode of transport around this gem of a city. However, for colder days or longer journeys, most people opt for public transport. On your trip, we have found that it is a good idea to purchase an Amsterdam travel ticket. This ticket gives you unlimited travel around the city, whether it be on the bus, train, metro or even the ferry. The website states that this ticket allows you to have ‘carefree travel’ on public transport and we couldn’t agree more. Every mode of transport is clean, spacious and it is very easy to get around.

Barcelona

Barcelona has a wide range of transport, as well as sightseeing transport options. There are different ticket types so that you can get to where you want to go easily and conveniently. Again, the metro is a great option, as well as the FGC and the tram. These options all operate under the T-10 card which is valid for 10 journeys and costs as an alternative to a single ticket which costs €2,20. Barcelona is almost famous for its bus tours. You can discover the attractions of Barcelona at your own pace and hop on and hop off as much as you like on three routes with more than 39 stops. Make sure you sit on the open top to catch a tan!

Wherever you end up on your city break, we hope you enjoy it.
