Getting around Rome
The public transport system in Rome is very varied, cheap and user friendly. These are the main means of transportation in the city:
Means of transport in Rome
- The Metro in Rome has three lines. Although it isn’t very extensive it has stops in all of the city’s major attractions and points of interest.
- The bus network covers the city of Rome completely, unlike the metro system. There are over 350 different bus routes.
- Trams are usually cleaner than the public buses in Rome. However, the tramway network is very limited and therefore not always handy for tourists.
- Urban trains in Rome complement the metro lines and are run by the same company. The tickets are the same and the prices too.
- Being swindled by Rome’s taxi drivers is not uncommon, and throughout the years the taxi drivers of this city have gotten a bad reputation. Find out about the official rates and useful advice so as not to be overcharged.
If you’d prefer something a little more eco-friendly, you can rent bicycles or if you prefer to feel Italian, why not try a vespa?
