Most visitors to Vienna rely on the city’s fantastic transport system.
If you’re used to London prices, for example, you will be shaking your head in disbelief at the efficiency and at how little you have to pay for that efficiency. Learn how the tickets work and how to understand the signs at a tram stop.
The system is very wheelchair-friendly, too.
