Please be advised your coach may stop at multiple client hotels prior to your own.

Fiumicino – Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is located approximately 21.7 miles southwest of Rome city centre, the airport is served by a six-lane motorway and numerous buses and taxis. Fiumicino Aeroporto railway station is available at the airport terminal, and the train takes approximately 40 minutes to Rome Termini Train Station. Fares start at €14 per person.

Ciampino – G.B. Pastine International Airport is the secondary international airport of Rome, situated 10 miles outside of the city centre. A bus service links the airport terminals to Ciampino Città Train Station. From here, take a 15-minute train journey to Termini Train Station to access the city centre.

Tram

Rome hosts a small network of trams, most of which do not cover the main districts frequented by visitors. If you want to see a little of the “real Rome” you can combine the number 3 and 19 trams for a pleasant trip of suburban Rome.

Metro

The Rome Metro Underground Train system has two main lines: A (red) and B (blue). The lines intersect at Rome Termini Station, the main public transport hub in Rome. You'll find that the Metro misses much of the city centre but does cover The Colosseum/Romanget and takes you within a five-minute walk of the Vatican Museums and St Peter's Square.

Bus

Buses run a very comprehensive and frequent system from 0530hrs to 0000hrs daily. These bus services are supplemented by night services that run all night along the core routes. The major bus terminal in the centre of Rome is in front of Termini Train Station. There are also a number of companies offering hop on/hop off tourist buses that stop off at all the major sites.

Taxi

Taxi ranks can be found all over the city, especially near well-known tourist sites, train stations and airports. Hailing a taxi in Rome is not as common practice as it is in many other large cities, although not completely unheard of. Be sure to use a licensed, metered taxi and ignore any touts. Official taxis are white cars with a ‘taxi’ light on the roof and a ‘Comune di Roma’ sign on the side, detailing the driver’s licence number.

On foot

Other than the metro, walking is the best way to see the city. However, take care at pedestrian crossings as the green man does not necessarily mean that the traffic will stop.
