Learn to use public transportation and especially the METRO....unlike America where public transport is usually looked down upon...almost all major European cities have metros..as a rule they are clean, safe, inexpensive, fast and in the case of Moscow and St Petersberg the stations are better than most art galleries! The LONELY PLANET GUIDES have metromaps galore! The maps are FREE on www.metropla.net

My LONDON METRO MAP doesnt say LONDON on it, but how many of us knew what it was anyway? How many of us have a poster of it hanging on our wall? (I do.) I will get some argument from purists about calling Britain - Europe, many of you will begin your GRAND TOUR in London. Its a cultural ICON of TRAVEL! learn to navigate the London Metro...its good practise for Moscow in rush hour where the signs are in Cryilic. *NOTE You will hear ALOT about trains in my pages, it is one of the great pleasures of going to EUROPE.
