Thu, 17 Nov 2016

Your dream came true. You have just arrived in Rome and you want to see as many places as possible. At this point, the question is: which is the best way to visit the Eternal City?

From the Fiumicino airport you can take the train to Tiburtina, Termini, Ostiense or Trastevere railway stations or a shuttle. From Ciampino airport, there are a shuttle and a bus to Termini, which are quite cheap. Otherwise, you can take a taxi instead (they have fixed fares). The airport transfer with TreasureRome is free of charge if you book directly!

When in Rome, the fastest and easiest way to visit the most famous sites is the metro (A,B and C lines), but it doesn’t go everywhere. You can easily reach the Colosseum and St.Peter’s Basilica, for example, but you’ll probably need to catch the tram or a bus to go to other nice areas. Actually we have a suggestion:  you can also simply walk. Honestly, it’s the best solution to breath and live the real Roman atmosphere. It’s up to you!

Tickets and passes

The integrated time ticket is 1,50 euro and it is valid 100 minutes from first validation. You can buy it at metro stations, but not on buses and trams, so you need it before getting on. But there is also the opportunity to get a 24, 48 and 72 hours passes to go around the city: they cost respectively 7.00, 12.50 and 18 euro. You can buy them at:

  • Atac ticket offices;
  • authorized Points of sale (like kiosks and tobacco shops)
  • Automatic ticket machines.

If you are planning to go to museums and experience all that Rome can offer, you have two more options.

The 48 or 72 Roma pass: you get the transports and museums free of charge and special discounts for events, exhibitions and touristic services. 

The 24 or 72 Omnia card: it offers transports free of charge, the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel entrance plus two more museum visits. Moreover, you can also skip the queue for St. Peter’s Basilica, The Sistine Chapel and The Colosseum.

For more information and prices, please check their websites.

If you want to plan your holiday, check our blog and Turismo Roma, the official tourist website of the city.

Now you are ready: enjoy our fabulous (Treasure)Rome!
