Traveling to Europe? Check to see if the cities on your itinerary have a City Card!
A City Card can be a real money saver for the savvy traveler. These clever little cards offer free or discounted admission to top tourist attractions, museums, and more! In some cases, your city card will even take the place of admission tickets so you have everything you need all in one little card!
Additional perks often include free maps and guidebooks, front of the line privileges, free public transportation, Hop-on Hop-off Bus access, and discounts at shops, cafes, and restaurants. Choose from single or multi-day options.
This is by no means an exhaustive list. Many cities have multiple discount cards available. It's a good idea to research the benefits vs. cost of any card before you buy one, and take into consideration what attractions are included in the card that you already plan to visit. In general, I've found that the cards are most cost efficient when almost everything on your itinerary is covered by the card. Visit the official city card website for each location listed below to get detailed information, pricing, and the full list of benefits for each card.
