Using the 397 AirPort Express was so easy and much cheaper than paying €45 for a taxi. Bus Stan was easy to find, the bus had plenty of seats and information on each stop. It dropped us 2 minutes from our hotel. The return journey was just as easy. It took about 20- 25 minutes. The bus is not as frequent after 6pm about every 12 minutes, during the day every 5 minutes. A very reliable way to get in to the city centre.

Pas de temps d'attente,le bus était là à l'arrêt B17,comme expliqué. Le chauffeur a expliqué, où il fallait que je scane le QR code,et m'a même dit qu'il allait me prévenir lorsque je devrais descendre. L'arrêt juste en face du musée. Même chose au retour. Beau bus ,confortable, les arrêts sont indiqués sur un écran et annoncés..Ce moyen permet aussi de voir la ville. Le trajet dure un peu plus longtemps mais est très instructif. J'étais enchantée.

Όλα ήταν πολύ κατανοητά. Κατεβάσαμε τα εισητηρια από την εφαρμογή (το μπαρκοουντ για κάποιον λόγο δε χτύπαγε στο μηχάνημα αλλά μας άφησαν να περάσουμε) και μετά με βάση το Google maps , καταλάβαμε τις στάσεις. Πολύ εύκολο και ο κόσμος είναι πρόθυμος να βοηθήσει αν χρειαστείς κάτι
