Getting-Around-Rome

There’s no doubt that the best way to explore a city is by walking around and let the place surprise you in a variety of ways. But sometimes for a reason or another we just don’t have the time or the energy needed to do so, and at those moments, knowing exactly how the public transport in your destination works can be a real lifesaver.

The public transport in Rome is very efficient and easy to use. Termini station is where all the train, bus and tram lines start and finish and you’re going to stop by there at some moment, no matter where in Rome you’re staying (but staying around there it’s a must and makes your journeys a lot easier).

Getting Around Rome

To get around Rome on public transport you will have to choose amongst the following tickets:

Integrated Ticket (BIT): €1.50 – valid for 100 minutes from the time you first validate it. You can use it on the bus, subway, and tram. It can be used only once in the metro and an unlimited number of times for buses and trams, within the 100 minutes of validity.

BIT ticket

Rome 24h: €7,00 – valid for 24 hours from the first time you use/validate it, in the territory of Rome Capital. It can be used an unlimited number of times, including subway, bus and tram, as well as Cotral buses (urban route) and Regional Rail (urban route). The route Rome – Fiumicino Airport is excluded, whether for bus or train.

Rome 48h: €12.50 – valid for 48 hours from the first time you use/validate it in the territory of Rome Capital. It can be used an unlimited number of times, including subway, bus and tram, as well as Cotral buses (urban route) and Regional Rail (urban route). The route Rome – Fiumicino Airport is excluded, whether for bus or train.

Roma 72h: €18,00 – valid for 72 hours from the first time you use/validate in the territory of Rome Capital. It can be used an unlimited number of times, including subway, bus and tram, as well as Cotral buses (urban route) and Regional Rail (urban route). The route Rome – Fiumicino Airport is excluded, whether for bus or train.

Tickets 48h and 72h must be filled with your personal details and you must have an identification document for both, buying and using them.


7 days ticket (CIS): €24,00 –
valid for 7 days from the date you validate it or until the 24 hours of the seventh day. It can be used an unlimited number of times, including subway, bus, and tram. This ticket must also be filled with your personal details and you must bring along an identification document.

Roma Pass 72h & 48h: €38,50 & €28,00 – it’s a tourist ticket that entitles you to immediate entry (skip the line) into 2 touristic attractions of your choice (amongst the included ones) and to unlimited use of the public transport for 3 or 2 days depending on your choice. To check which touristic attractions are included and to buy it, go HERE.

To buy train tickets to other locations outside of Rome, you can buy at the automatic machines and at the ticket booths at Termini Station, or at Trenitalia’s website.

Where & how to buy & validate tickets?

You can buy the tickets in the machines inside the stations, they accept both coins and bank notes and give you the change (resto – in Italian). It’s very easy to use everything identified with step-by-step arrows:

1 – choose the type of ticket, 2- enter the money, 3- remove your tickets and the change in the door at the bottom of the machine.

You can also buy in the tobacco shops (tabaccheria) that are all over the city, easily identified with a letter T (where cigarettes and lotteries are sold).

To Validate: In the case of a train, there is a green machine at the station, just in front of the binaries, where the trains arrive. Enter your ticket there to be stamped. Photo below:

You might have to show it to the ticket inspector inside of the train. If the ticket is not validated you’ll have to pay a €50 fine + fees, so stay tuned! If you have purchased on the website, you can just print it or receive a message on your mobile phone and in such cases, you obviously don’t need to validate, just show it to the inspector if he/she asks.

If you’re only using the buses and trams, always buy your ticket before in the tobacco shops. Or in the same machines of the metro stations, because is not possible to buy tickets inside of the buses and trams.

Entering the bus and tram remember: you have to validate the ticket by sticking it in the machine. It swallows the ticket and then returns it validated. When the machine returns your ticket check on the back if it was stamped with the due time. If it hasn’t been stamped or if the machine is broken (it can happen) write the date and time you entered the transport with a pen to avoid fines. If you pass the inspection and you haven’t validated for whatever reason, a €50 fine + fees apply. Stay tuned!

Children under 10 years old are free on public transport.

 

Transfer Airports – Termini Station

There are several ways to get from the airports Ciampino and Fiumicino to Termini station. The most common and budget friendly are the shuttle buses from various companies with an average price of €4,50 one way.

 When buying your shuttle bus ticket, avoid buying the discounted return ticket beforehand. The buses fill up very quickly and you might need to choose a different shuttle bus to go back to the airport on time. This way you won’t waste your money on a bus you won’t be able to take!

Taxis usually have a fixed price of 50 euros.

The “Leonardo Express” train is the fastest and easiest way to get to Termini station (it costs €14). The journey takes about 30 minutes and the interval between departures is also 30 minutes.There’s also the local FM 1 local train (it costs €8) but it takes a bit longer. You will need to jump to Tiburtina station and take the B line subway to Termini (in this case you will need to pay another 1.50 euro for the BIT).
