Getting Around Rome
Once flights to Rome arrive, several options can get any adventurer directly to this city's historic interior. You can take a train, bus, taxi, or rental car to take you to your destination. Once you are in Rome, you will appreciate the integrated services of public transit such as the metro, buses, or trams, which all share the same ticketing service. The two lines (A and B) of the underground Metro system go around the historic city centre, forming an "X". If you are sightseeing, the easiest transportation might be the hop on/hop off tour buses which swarm every historic plaza of fabled Rome. Taxis are another option; however, it might be hard to get one off the street so utilize the cars lined-up at your hotel.
For a city steeped in history, you will find plenty to entertain you with stories from the past. You will also discover plenty about the present in Rome to enjoy, including shops, restaurants, and gardens. Rome is a combination of the ancient and the modern to please every kind of visitor.
