Best way to get around in Budapest
In Budapest there are three different metro lines that you can use. If you are getting in by the airport there is a bus 200E which goes to a metro station where line 3 starts. This is perfect if you are going to the city center. In the city you will also find trams, buses and trolley buses. However it is quite enough to just focus on the metro and walk from the stations. Walking is easy and you have pavements almost everywhere.
