Cobblestone streets and narrow streets make exploring Palma by foot the ideal way to spend the day. The narrow streets of the Old City are ringed by wider boulevards that mark the location where the fortified walls built by the Moors in the 12th century once stood. Walking around the city will give you the most personal view of the city, and though streets are tightly packed together, getting lost would take some effort.
Palma also offers a limited bus service within the city. Called the Empresa Municipal de Transports Urbans de Palma de Mallorca (and referred to as the EMT), the bus system is quite efficient for such a small location. For party animals that will be partaking in Palma's active nightlife in the city-center, there is a Bus de Nit (Night Bus) service that runs every twenty minutes on Friday and Saturday between the wee hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.
If you're looking to get outside of the city, there is a train service that operates from terminals located in the Placa d'Espanya. The Tren de Soller route takes travellers on a scenic route north through the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains. The second route, operated by the Transport de les Illes Balears (TIB) is less scenic, and takes travellers over the plains north to a number of small towns and villages.
For those that plan to travel beyond Palma's city limits, a car is probably the easiest way to get around. A number of car rental agencies have service centers at the airport.
In addition to these options, taxi service is also available within the city to get around to different locations.
