The central part of the city is almost completely closed to vehicles; a popular mode of transport is bike. The most popular bike rentals among holidaymakers are near the train station and on the rue des Bouchers. The cost of renting two-wheeler is 7 to 10 euros per day.
It is convenient to move around the city on buses and trams; there is single ticket for these modes of transport. It can be bought at any newsstand, tobacco shop, tourist office or in vending machines on public transport stops. The cost of a ticket for one trip is about 5 euros; a ticket for a whole day will cost about 4 euros.
Travelers who prefer to travel by private car or expect to rent a car have to consider some important features. It is very difficult to move around the city center by car because many streets are pedestrianized. In addition, during peak hours there are always heavy traffic jams on city's main streets.
Those planning a rich excursion program are recommended to visit one of the local tourist offices. They sell tourist cards entitling to free admission of cultural venues, discounts in shops and restaurants. That card would cost about 15 euros for adults and 5 euros for children.
