Airport Transportation - Taxi Recommended

Official Taxis are a flat rate of 50 euro to and from the city center. A taxi is only official if it is clearly marked and is cued up in the designated line. Tipping is not required as drivers are salaried.

As you walk out of customs, there will be many "drivers" who ask if you need a taxi or a car service. IGNORE THEM! You will end up paying 200+ euro and are putting your safety at risk as they are not regulated/licensed drivers.

Uber Blacks, which will be luxury passenger vans, are possible to/from the airport. Prices will range depending on the time of day and distance to/from your hotel.

NOTE: If you traveled together with more than 2 people, I recommend booking a black car/van service in advance of your trip. I am happy to help with that and, often your AirBnb host will offer it as a paid service!

Public Transportation

Rome has three metro lines (A, B, C). During your trip, you will probably only use subway line A and B (Line C is still largely under construction). You have several options for buying tickets at the ticket machines. It is important to know that the same ticket is valid for all public transport (ATAC) including metro, trams, and buses (with the exception of the tourist buses). You can choose from a number of different tickets:

BIT Metro Ticket: This ticket costs 1.50 € and allows you to use public transport for 100 minutes after you stamp it. You are only allowed to make one trip by metro or train.

Roma 24H Ticket: This 7 € ticket allows you to travel for 24 hours after activation.

Roma 48H / 72H Ticket: With this ticket you can travel 2 days for 12.50 € or 3 days for 18 €. Tip: You can now also purchase your public transport card (72 hours) incl. Airport transfer online. Buy this Rome Travel Card here.

CIS Metro Ticket: With this ticket of 24 € you can travel 7 days.

The metro runs every day from 5:30 am to 11:30 pm, 01:30 am on Saturdays.

Children up to 10 years old travel for free when accompanied by a paying adult.

Remember to stamp your ticket (you do this yourself in the buses and trams), or you will risk a fine. (I got this from a website. It makes it sound more dramatic than it is. The Italians have never cared that much about anything ever!)
