TRANSPORTATION IN ROME
The sightseeing Rome on foot is indeed an exhausting enterprise. The public transport system gets you to the major tourist sites and attractions quicker.
About that we recommend buying the Roma Pass. It costs €34 and allows you to use public transport for 3 consecutive days and at the same time to enjoy various benefits for the same period in museums, tourist attractions, shops, theaters.
The Metrebus Rome system offers a wide variety of tickets and passes:
The Roman metro (called Metropolitana by residents) goes round rather than through the historic city. It has only three lines, Lines A (red) and B (blue) intersect at Roma Termini station; line C (green) is completely automated but is not yet connected to the rest of the network.
Trains run approximately every 3-5 minutes, from 5:30am until 11.30pm every day (until 0:30am on Fridays and Saturdays).
Buses and Trams
There are hundreds of bus lines, running from 5:30am till midnight. All buses and trams travel in both directions.
In an effort to minimize pollution in the small backstreets of the historic center, the city has established several electric bus lines to navigate alleyways barely wide enough for a Vespa.
Over 20 night bus lines run from 00:30am to 5:30am. The main terminal stations are Termini (Piazza dei Cinquecento) and Piazza Venezia. From these two piazzas buses leave for all directions every 30 minutes. Night bus stops are marked with an owl. You can purchase tickets on board.
