|The Trevi Fountain, Rome Italy|
For those of you who like to travel well informed and travelling on a budget is good alternative, have to know many things. Among them the information and tips about public transport is very important. When you go to Rome you have to know:
First - Rome has an integrated transport system. Tickets can be used for every transport - buses, metro and trams.The regular price is €1 and can are valid for 75 minutes after they are first stamped. During these 75 minutes you are free to use whatever combination of transport you want. Tickets can be bought from the newsstands, the tabacchi and at the metro stations.
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
