Use Mass transit!

Oh my goodness. Get out of that cab.

Yeah, renting a car, I suppose, is cool, though gas is so much more expensive in Europe than even cliched notions you might have could suggest.

And, sure, those stories of a cabbie ripping you off in the Czech Republic - decide on a price before you even get inside, folks - are great for your friends.

But if you are only spending a few days in a city, you have to, have to give the city’s mass transit system a spin.

Now, I have a bias because I would say the same thing about U.S. cities - how can you visit Philadelphia or Boston or Pittsburgh or Los Angeles and not give a go to how the common locals get around - but it becomes even more important abroad.

London and Paris have some of the largest subways systems in the world - use the Paris Viste pass in the French capital - but you should also get on the trams in Amsterdam and the trolleys in Prague. Did you get a bicycle in Zurich?

Some locals will tell you that you shouldn’t even pay for a ticket to get on the trolleys in Budapest and maybe not even the metro. Have you been on the red double decker buses in London or a ferry to Copenhagen? Man, now that is one big part of exploring a city.

Even if you only do it for one day, any new city you visit, you have to try out mass transit.
