Tips for Getting Around in Rome

36

Rome, with its many main attractions, is a major tourist destination in Italy. In Rome, you can find some ancient buildings, Renaissance and medieval buildings and fountains as well as great museums. The capital of modern Italy is Rome. There are several good cafes and restaurants, great nightlife, lively streets, and markets. The historic center, despite being a large city, is very small. In this travel guide to Rome, you will find information and comprehensive Tips for Getting Around in Rome when you fly into Rome.

  1. Metro

Metro Rome or “Metropolitan” currently consists of only two lines, the third line is planned and part of it is under construction. These two lines are known as the Red Line or Line A and the Blue Line or Line B and meet only at Termini Station, the city’s main station and major transportation hub. 

The waterway runs from northeast to southwest of Rebibbia to the Laurentina, stopping at the Colosseum and St. Paul’s Church, and also connecting the city’s three main train stations, Termini, Tiburtina, and Ostiense. Unfortunately, the subway passes through most of the historic center. This is because there is still a lot of ancient Rome under the city, and excavations are often canceled after the discovery of a 2000-year-old brick wall and so on.

  1. Walking

The historic center of Rome is compact and many of the most famous sights are located side by side. Therefore, Rome is an amazing city for walking. In fact, this “transportation method” is highly recommended and a great way to discover some of the attractions and beautiful areas that you will no doubt miss. However, walking in Rome can be challenging at first! Especially because of the “special” leadership style of the Romans, crossing the street may seem like a suicide attempt.

  1. Be comfortable.

Clean fashion items and choose comfortable things. Remember that you will walk a lot and certainly high heels will not provide the necessary support for your feet. It is better to wear rubber shoes or sandals, jeans, and your favorite shirt. However, it is worth considering which clothes are suitable for a particular area. For example, most tourist trips to Rome can include the Vatican. They are very strict in terms of dress code. This usually means that there are no sexy clothes, shorts, and T-shirts for women and no offensive shirts or ripped jeans for men.

  1. Buses and trams

Most of Rome can be reached by bus, although the network seems very complicated. You can get a map of the main station near the Termini station by bus. However, city routes are constantly changing and the map may be out of date. Routes are usually between 6 am and midnight, and some areas are served by night buses. Most bus stops clearly show where the bus is going. Tickets must be purchased in advance and stamped on the bus. You usually have to sit in the back or front of the bus and get off in the middle.

As always, be aware of the crowded buses, in fact, some routes are known for their pockets, especially Route 64, where tourists go due to stops at various tourist spots. There are several tram lines in Rome, but they are a bit remote. However, there are routes that pass close to the Vatican, the Colosseum, and Trattoria. However, they are clean and effective as long as you are where you need to be. Again, it is better to buy your ticket before boarding.

  1. Packaging

Those of us in North America may think we have aggressive drivers and busy roads, but in Rome, this has peaked. Cars occupy the roads, occupying all accessible places and even some not so free places. This is a normal distance between the length of the car and the distance between you and the car in front. This is partly due to the intensity of road construction in ancient Rome – many roads built thousands of years ago are still in use. Traffic lights are built around new rules and regulations.

If you live in the historic center of Rome, do not worry about finding a car. Miracles are gathered in a relatively small area and you will have a good walk. For those who love adventure, you can rent a spa throughout the city. Once again, the reception of any hotel in Rome can give you the information you need to decide on the most suitable means of transportation, remember security and wish a successful trip to this beautiful city!

  1. Tickets

Metro, bus, and tram tickets can be purchased at train stations, tobacco kiosks, and newsstands. Subway ticket vending machines generally only accept exact exchanges and are also known or use your money, so it is best to buy your ticket at the locations listed above.

Integrated Tick (BIT) are available. It costs just one euro and allows you to travel up to 75 minutes by any number of buses or trams, but on a metro or city train journey. There are several other types of tickets listed below: A one-day travel card (BIG) costs 4 euros and is ideal if you plan to use the transport system for a long day. The card is valid until midnight of the check and can be used on most public transportation, including city trains. The cost of a three-day card (BTI (Integrated Tourist Ticket) is € 11 and, like the BIG Travel card, is valid for most modes of transport), but expires three days after the initial check.

Conclusion

These tips are collected to ensure you make the most of your stay in Rome. Good quality accommodation is also an important factor in the holidays. Ultimately, the success of your travels in Rome depends largely on your taste. If you are interested in history, art, and culture, the best way to enjoy and get to know the Eternal City is to hire an official local guide to guide you through its hidden magical treasures. So you can be assured of the many cafes and shopping areas scattered throughout the country.
