How to move around Rome

The historic centre is not particularly large (only 2,5 km/1,5 miles from the Colosseum to Piazza di Spagna) and so is easy to visit on foot, as most monuments are to be found in the same area.

Termini Central StationRome's bus network is extensive and functions quite well, but the metro (subway) is much simpler for the short-term visitors to master.

Public transportation Tickets must be purchased in advance from tabacchis, newsstands, bars, or vending machines (exact change only!) at metro and major bus stops.


The Roman metro (called Metropolitana by residents) goes round rather than through the historic city. It has only two lines, A (red) and B (blue), which cross at Termini Central Station.
Trains run approximately every 7-10 minutes, from 5:30am until 11.30pm every day (until 0:30am on Saturdays).

Buses and Trams

There are hundreds of bus lines, running from 5:30am till midnight. All buses and trams travel in both directions.
Electric buses
In an effort to minimize pollution in the small backstreets of the historic center, the city has established several electric bus lines to navigate alleyways barely wide enough for a Vespa.
Night buses
Over 20 night bus lines run from 00:30am to 5:30am. The main terminal stations are Termini (Piazza dei Cinquecento) and Piazza Venezia. From these two piazzas buses leave for all directions every 30 minutes. Night bus stops are marked with an owl. You can purchase tickets on board.

If you need a taxi, remember to look for the official metered white or yellow taxis. 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, try 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 exsactly what interests you, and in less time.
To really "do as the Romans do", you have to drive around on a Vespa. You'll have no trouble finding rental places all around the city. Rental average are €40-€50 for a one day.
