People were packed in no place to put your knees! the ticket booth is at the edge of town square. They over sold the train, seats uncomfortable, too crowded and a waste of time and money. Would not recommend to anyone. Remember, they do not...More

Cost 6 euros 50 cents. 40 minute trip with audio commentary around the town including thought the botanic gardens, all of which you could walk to but it's good for the less mobile or just to get your bearings.
