The ticket costs 20 euros pp and you can use the free bus (outside the station) to go to the historic centre. The royal palace is expensive and the queues, under the sun, are very long. The cathedral is nothing special and very expensive too....More

The port of Palmero is located right into the city centre at a walking distance. Therefore, the most economical way to go around is to take a taxi, specially if you are in a group of 4-6. You can settle the rates beforehand. Palmero being...More
