    It really isn't that expensive and as for the advice of taking the bus and metro to get there, I wouldn't recommend it, the metro is a bit confusing. Sharing a taxi won't be expensive and will be way simpler.

    I parked there and there was at least 3 metres clearance in the garage. Not sure what the height limit was though.
