Easy to organise but you still need to go to City Hall to get the card

The museums and galleries on the list were not quite the ones I wanted to see. You need to get on the bus quite a lot to make it worthwhile. But it’s practicable otherwise you need the correct change. It’s OK.

Great for seeing many things. And everyone accepted the card without question or attitude. I lost my card and they replaced it without any concerns.

Pick up the physical cards ahead of time. Most of the bus drivers did not recognize the digital card.

Excellent way to get to know the city and the whole island by visiting all the museums.

Excellent for cold days and going to museums, galleries or pools to relax.
