Line B allows you to have an overview of the coast, we did the entire route without going down, and it really deserves it! Line A, on the other hand, being dedicated to the part of the historic center, lends itself to descents and ascents. Both are useful for an overview of the city.

Po meni vrlo jednostavan način za obići grad i upoznati ga na brzinu. Postoje dvije linije, jedna koja ide uz grad, a druga koja ide u zaljev. Crvena i plava. Naravno možete izaći na bilo kojoj stanici koja je mjesto vašeg interesa i ponovo uči i vratiti se na početno mjesto.

Very long and nice experience! I will definitely suggest it to others.

Busy but well organised and well worth doing good value for money

perfect for all ages. it's easy-to-use and very joyful.
