You can also get around by asking a local resident who is only too happy to help.

Keep in mind that there are plenty of parking meters downtown. If you are an American, don’t worry, meters will accept your coins as well as major credit cards.

Buses are a great way to get around as well. You can buy an all-day pass which is convenient and less expensive than buying a one-way ticket.
