Getting around in Rome

If you’re going to drive in Rome, you’ll get a chance to better understand the Romans. In your Rome travel experience you will notice that people tend to drive according to their own rules. The charismatic Romans are very passionate people, and it is revealed on the road as well: it’s very common to see a lot of hand gesturing from the drivers. But don’t worry, it’s a fun way to see the local culture. Keep calm and drive safe!

The best way to travel in Rome is of course with a local host by your side. You can book your own private driver and he’ll take you to all the main stops and hidden gems. A vespa experience can also be included on your list, it’s such a fun way to see the city! If you’re more into walking, then your host can offer you one of his walking tours in Rome, designed especially for you. They'll help you find all the awesome things to do in Rome.

Public transport & taxis in Rome

In your travel to Rome, you will probably also reach the central railway station, named Termini Station. It is the main public transport point of convergence in the city: there you will find the subway, the main bus station for local buses, airport buses and trains. Inside the station there is a big underground shopping mall on two floors, including a supermarket.

The Rome travel subway system features three lines named A, B and C. Lines A and B cross at Rome Termini Railway Station, while Line C is a new line that covers the outskirts of the centre, so you will not use it often. The subway in Rome is quick and efficient and tickets can be bought from the automatic machines prior to boarding. Make sure you validate your tickets first, as many tourists get caught out by this. The Colosseum/Roman Forum (Line B) and Spanish Steps (Line A) are included in the Rome travel subway service and you can reach them within a few minutes’ walking. The Vatican Museums and St Peter's Square are also on Line A.

All local public transportation is integrated, so with the same subway ticket you can travel by bus and tram as well. Tickets can be purchased from the vending machines at subway stations and major bus stops or tobacconists, bars. On both buses and subway there is a flat fare, whether you go one stop or to the end of the line. On buses your ticket is valid for 100 minutes and with the same one you can change many buses. Public transportation is free for children less than 10 years old.

Taxis are cheaper than in many comparable cities and are white colored. The Rome Travel service is operated by private companies, licensed by the Local Authority. Be sure to use an official taxi: they display a "TAXI" sign on the roof and the Rome crest (with "SPQR") on the doors.

Rome’s Favorite Food Tour: the 10 Tastings

Margi was an incredible tour guide! She brought us to the places where she buys the best foods herself, a true local. She took us around one of the markets and taught us so much about the culture as well. This tour made our trip to Rome SO much more meaningful and we can’t wait to come back someday!

Rome’s Favorite Food Tour: the 10 Tastings

It was my first trip to Rome solo. Massimo was personable and showed the beauty of Campo de Fliori. Local secrets that could not be found in the web engine. Massimo was a gentle soul and evident that he is passionate about his home city. We talked about the history and included in these of all things, crazy rich Asians. It transcends that how travel is a passion share by All. Love,love,love it. Post the food walk guide, I checked out the other places in Rome but found to be touristy and tacky. It was so good that I came back on my own on another day to Campo de Fliori and truly immersed myself to the spirit of the place.
