Subway (metro)

Most of Rome’s main attractions are located in the historic center, which can be easily covered just walking. The Rome Metro network opened back in 1955, making it the oldest metro in whole Italy, and can take you everywhere you want.

Rome has two subway lines: Linea A, the red line, or Linea B, the blue line, intersecting at Stazione Termini, the most important train station in the city of Rome.

There are also three-day passes (Biglietto turistico integrato) or weekly tickets (settimanale), which allow unlimited use of the surface and underground transportation system. Before getting to the platforms, you must validate your ticket through a specific machine.
