Loved how clean and easy this metro is to use. Be sure and check out the dining car - they have great food and drinks.

it depends on the zone. first you must by a card (0.60 euro if i remember well) and you refill it each time you use the metro! i used metro for long distances (airport) and i walk to see as more as buildings and sightseeings!
