When navigating Curitiba, take advantage of the efficient public transportation system, including the iconic “Linha Turismo” bus that connects major attractions. English is not widely spoken, so learning a few Portuguese phrases can greatly enhance the travel experience. The local currency is the Brazilian Real, and credit cards are widely accepted. To make the most of the visit, prioritize safety by being mindful of personal belongings in crowded areas and respecting local customs and traditions.
