When one thinks of the ways to travel Europe, the bus is rarely on the top of the list. Yet, it is a popular choice for many budget travelers. It can be one of the cheapest ways to travel through Europe, but it often lacks in comfort, speed, convenience, and the schedules can often be fairly confusing.
Buses generally arrive/depart from bus stations. European bus stations can run the gamut from nice to pretty seedy, so that might be something to consider if you’re arriving late at night. Bus stations are generally located in the center of the city, but they can sometimes be located near the edge of town.
