Traveling in the summer may not be that appealing to some people. In spite of the excellent weather in many places, there are just too many other tourists who pack their bags and hit the roads at this time. Still, if you do not mind the crowds, then these next couple of months is the perfect time to go visit the continent across the ocean.
Carousing around Europe is part of every travelerâ€™s dream. However, we all know just how heavy on the pockets this could be. One critical weapon in the travelerâ€™s arsenal is the city card. Major European cities offer these cards to visitors and locals alike, in an effort to help them make some savings. Here are some city cards that you should take a look at.
If youâ€™re heading off to Spain, you might want to get one of these. You have to pay â‚¬26 for two days and you get 10 percent off on all online bookings at bcnshop.barcelonaturisme.com. You also get public transport and discounts for the attractions of the cities.
This card is cheaper at â‚¬23 for three days and you get more out of it. All buses, trains, and subways come free. You also get free entrance to two museums and additional discounts for every museum you visit thereafter. One drawback â€“ no discounts for the Vatican.
