Rome is one of the most famous cities in the world hence it should be a hassle if you are planning on visiting this city this year. In Rome, public transit is known as Mezzi pubblici To ride in the local trains, buses, trams, and metros requires that you get a ticket. You can travel by 100 minutes given by the BIT single tickets that are bought in self-service kiosks in bus stops, metro stations and newsagents. This BIT can to travel in trams or connecting buses and valid for 72, 48 or 24 hours.
For tourists who are going to be in Rome for a few days this is a good choice. The CIS is a good option because it is valid for weekly, monthly or annually. Tickets should be validated upon boarding as bus inspectors will not care if you are a tourist or not. Stamp your ticket on the yellow machine in the bus or trams. You can stamp your ticket in a metro on the automatic barriers. You can enter the museum, public trusts and discounts using the Roma pass. Trains are also easy to get around Rome.
Using public tickets is good for inner city train rides. On the ATAC map, you will see the red line where you can reach using the public tickets. Buy a train ticket if you want to travel beyond the red line. Tourists prefer the Roma Lido train line. To avoid fines stamp your ticket. Moving around Rome with metro is tiring because they are only two lines, A and B. There are metro stops near the Vatican and Colosseum as they are big tourist sights however other sights are not close to any metro stop.
Transport strikes common in Rome therefore as a tourist you should always have plan B. Only taxis marked “Commune di Roma” should be used to navigate around Rome. You will be overcharged if you don’t keep watch and see the meter sticks at 1 and should not jump to 2. The meter starts counting as soon as you call for a taxi.
Available also in Rome is Uber. Uber Black have nicer cars though a bit costly is also available. Ubers are only available in Milan and Rome but rare in other Italy cities. If you want to use public transport when visiting the Eternal City, we hope this is a useful guide.
