Public transportation Rome’s bus network is extensive but the metro (subway) is much simpler for the short-term visitors to master.
To check on rides and arrivals download on you smartphone MOOVIT or similar. It will help you to know times, location of stop buses and the right bus to take.
The Tickets must be purchased in advance from tabacchis, newsstands, bars, or vending machines (exact change only!) at metro and major bus stops. Sometimes you will find a vending machine on the bus. One regular Ticket (BIT) will allow you to take one way ride with metro plus 100min with buses and trams or trains in the Metropolitan area.
Other tickets options: 24h , 48h, 72h, CIS 7days.
The historic centre is not particularly large (only 2,5 km/1,5 miles from theColiseum to Spagna Square) and so it’s easy to visit on foot, as most monuments are to be found in the same area.
Metro The Roman metro (called Metropolitana by residents) goes through the city. It has only two lines, A (red) and B- B1(blue), which cross at Termini Central Station.
Metro C, a new one, run from Piazza Lodi to Pantano
Trains run approximately every 7-10 minutes, from 5:30am until 11.30pm every day (until 1:30am on Friday and Saturdays).
Night buses Over 20 night bus lines run from 00:30am to 5:30am. They run approximately every 30 minutes. Night bus stops are marked with an N.

Taxi If you need a taxi, remember to look for the official metered white taxi. There are taxi ranks in many locations throughout the center, but is nearly impossible to hail one driving down the streets, particularly at night. Make sure your taxi is metered; insist on the metered fare, rather than an arranged price. To call for a taxi within Rome, call 06 3570, 06 4994, 06 6645, 06 551, or 06 8822.

Renting bikes or scooters Although most of the sights in Rome are within walking distance or accessible by public transportation, two wheels will give you the freedom to see exactly what interests you, and in less time, but if you are not used to drive in the caos, avoid it.
