Second -You can buy yourself a 1-day pass for €4. It can be used from the moment the ticket is stamped until the midnight of the same day. There is also available a 3-day pass that costs €11. A 7-day pass costs €16.

Third - the Metro - The two line Metro system goes around the historic centre and in my opinion is really useful. In the moment there is a construction work on a third line. As it is not ready yet the main stops for the central sites are:

Spagna /Line A/ - for Piazza di Spagna, Villa Borghese
Ottaviano /Line A/ - for St.Peter's and Vatican Museums
Barberini /Line A/ - for the Trevi Fountain
Flaminio /Line A/ - for Piazza del Popolo, Villa Borghese
Colosseo /Line A/ - for Colosseum, Forum, Palatine Hill
