Bicycle Service

The size of the city and the common nice weather make this option highly recommended. The service is call ‘sevici’ and is managed by the city council and JCDecaux. The stations are situated throughout the inner-city with a distance of around 200 meters between each one. The bikes can be borrowed from, and returned to, any station in the system, making it suitable for one way travel. A wide network of bicycle lines are available along the city (see map)

A weekly membership is available to use the service. It cost €5 and can be obtained directly at any station by presenting a credit card. Additionally, €150 must be authorized in order to deter theft. (If a debit card is used, the 150 euros will be taken immediately and returned at the end of the hire period.) When a weekly membership is purchased the user is provided with a member code to be used at the stations, making the service immediately available.
