Rome Metro

How to ride the Metropolitana di Roma, which has two lines that connect many of Rome's most popular hotel areas and tourist attractions.

The Metropolitana di Roma offers a quick, easy way to travel between Stazione Termini (Rome's central railroad station) and several major tourist areas.

Although the Rome Metro is tiny in comparison to the Paris Metro, the London Underground, or the Madrid Metro, its trains run at frequent intervals, and Rome's subway fares are among the cheapest in Western Europe.
