Transportation in Rome


Rome's buses are the most reliable method of getting across the city but can get hot and crowded. Certain lines, notably the number 64 from Termini Station to the Vatican, are renowned for pickpockets, so hang on to your valuables.


Queue for a cab at one of the numerous orange taxi stops dispersed through the city centre rather than trying to flag down a taxi. Avoid the taxi touts that swarm around Termini station, charging extortionate fares. If your Italian is up to it, call a radio car on 06 3570.


Rome's underground metro network is somewhat limited due to subterranean archaeological remains which are unearthed each time construction workers begin extending the system. Unless you have a journey of more than three stops it is generally better to walk.


In general the most efficient way of getting around is on foot, at least across the Centro Storico. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes on the cobbled streets.

Rent your car

Drivers in Rome need to watch for cars in every direction, even with right of way, and keep dipped headlights on throughout the day. Only resident pass-holders can drive into the historic centre before 6pm.

Transportation tips

The same tickets are valid on all city bus, tram and metro services and must be bought from stations, tobacconists or newspaper kiosks before boarding. For a single journey a ticket is valid for 75 minutes and includes travel on any number of buses and trams and one metro journey. Stamp your ticket in the yellow machine when you board. Alternatively, one-day, three-day and seven-day passes are available and include travel on the mainline trains to the beach in Ostia.
