Stockholm is easy to navigate, with an excellent public transport system made up of buses, metro lines, trams, and ferries. The metro is generally the most convenient way of getting around the city. Tickets are valid for all types of transport and can be purchased from stations and newsagent kiosks like Pressbyrån. One and three-day passes are good deals for those planning to travel a lot.
Metered taxis are available but are among the most expensive in the world, while driving in Stockholm is easy compared to most large cities, drivers need to be aware of toll passages and an overall scarcity of parking. Walking or cycling are often the best options for sightseeing in the city centre.
