If you're on a weekend trip this won't work most of the time. Especially on Sunday in a Catholic country.

>or from a bank’s (preferably indoor) ATM

This means that, once you see something you'd like to buy, you first need to find an ATM that won't charge exorbitant prices for currency exchange and cash withdrawal. Also, you should use a card provider that doesn't do that.
Even though I had a nice travel card a few times, cash still seems to be the king. And exchanged outside the destination country and outside the tourist season, if possible. :)

> Make a “cash in wallet” account in the local currency. That will get you better rates and only a few exchange transactions.

I wish all the remaining countries in Europe would start using Euro. That would make things so much easier. :D
