    In the English capital the most comfortable and fastest way to travel is by Underground. The city is divided into six concentric zones: the price of metro tickets increases as you go. Tourist attractions are almost exclusively located in zones 1 and 2. Trains run at short intervals from 5:1 to XNUMX:XNUMX p.m. During rush hours, the subway is very crowded, so it is best to limit travel from 7.30 10.00 from and from 16.30 19.00 from.




    To advance quickly it is useful to have one map, distributed free of charge at the entrance of each station. London matters 12 metro lines, each characterized by a name and a color. Inside each station there are maps of the individual lines and signs with directions to the different lines you can access.

    The easiest line to use is circular line which forms a ring in the center of the city. Other useful lines for tourists are the Linea central, which crosses the city from Notting Hill to the City via Oxford Street, and the Piccadilly line with stops in Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus to King's Cross St.Pancras station.
