Conseils sur la ville

Déplacements
Public Transportation
Public transportation in Philly can be time consuming due to there only being 2 Subway lines, which connect to a number of buses. When moving from location to location, especially in a group, you will save a lot of time by calling an Uber or Lyft, or simply by walking or biking!
Manières de faire des économises
Free Days at Museums
The Philadelphia Museum of Art hosts "Pay what you wish" days on the first Sundays of every month as well as every Friday evening. The Barnes Foundation hosts free days on the first Sundays of every month, but tickets must be secured online in advance.
