Rome’s trams are usually cleaner than the buses and are also considered by many more romantic. Nonetheless, the tram lines are small and the fact that the network doesn’t get to the city centre makes it less appealing for visitors.
The tram network in Rome has six lines:
It is important to point out that none of these lines, unless if one of them stops at the door of your hotel, has any special attraction for tourists. The best linefor travellers is perhaps number 8, which links Trastevere with Largo di Torre Argentina.
Trams run from 5:30 am until midnight every day, like the city buses in Rome. At night, the trams are replaced by night buses.
Remember when you get on any tram to validate your ticket at their validation machines, otherwise you will be fined.
