La tessera é effettivamente molto utile e, grazie ai preziosi consigli dati all'ufficio del turismo mentre la si ritira, si riesce a sfruttare al meglio. A seconda delle proprie preferenze e del tempo a disposizione viene "modellato" un percorso attraverso musei, attrazioni etc. e relativi mezzi per gli spostamenti
