Travel through Europe without spending much: the best public transport

Looking for the cheapest ways to travel Europe? Here are the best ways to travel around Europe on a budget. 

THE BEST PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

The Best Things in Life are Free teaches you to forget the expensive tours and opt for the trams, the buses, and the boats, that will give you a more authentic (and cheap) perspective of the city.

TRAM 28 - LISBON, PORTUGAL

Between the streets of Lisbon, you can hear the ringing of a classic yellow tram. Riding in the Remodelado (designed in the thirties) that makes Route 28 is the best way to get into the old quarter, although it can be filled, so go soon. The single ticket costs 2.85 euros and the pass of one day 6 euros.

TRAM NUMBER 2 - BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

It advances along the Danube, overlooking the turrets of Castle Hill, the Jewish Memorial, and the grandiose Parliament. The single ticket costs 350 Hungarian guilders (1,13 euros) and the one day pass 1,650 Hungarian guilders (5,33 euros).

BOSPHORUS FERRY - ISTANBUL, TURKEY

Traveling from Europe to Asia for just over a euro? The ferry that crosses the Bosphorus Strait does just that, joining both sides of the city. Take it at dusk to see the horizon dotted with silhouettes of minarets. The single ticket costs 4 Turkish lira (1.20 euros).

TRANSPORTATION CARD - GENEVA, SWITZERLAND

The beautiful but expensive Geneva can make the less wealthy cry. To make it easier, the city offers you a free transport card that includes bus, tram, and boat-taxi trips. Free.

MERSEY FERRY - LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND

BUS NUMBER 11 - LONDON, ENGLAND

The only costs 1.5 pounds (1.74 euros) and the pass a day 5 pounds (5.81 euros).

VAPORETTO - VENICE, ITALY

You can take a gondola, but opting for a public Vaporetto rather than a private boat will save you a lot of money and offer you the same views of Venice from the water level. The only costs 7.5 euros and the pass of one day 20 euros.
