If ever there was a destination that needed no promotion or embellishment, it would be Rome. Other cities around the world may claim longer continuous habitation by humans, but no major city can outshine Rome in the sheer texture and magnificence of its centuries of history. In Rome, every piazza, street and alleyway testifies to the city’s glorious past, and as you trace the footsteps of the great emperors of Rome, you will discover some of the most talented artists of all time alongside some of history’s most influential personalities. Once the capital of the most powerful empire in the ancient world, Rome’s cultural, historical and artistic contributions resonate through the ages and they have shaped the very fabric of western civilization as we know it.
Although all of your transfers to airports, stations, harbors, and hotels have likely been included in your TrueTrip experience, there will be instances where you will use a taxi to get around. Always make sure that the driver starts the meter when you get in the taxi and check the meter before you pay. If in doubt about a fare, please check with your hotel concierge who is also able to arrange taxi pick-ups for you.
Although public transportation makes getting around quite easy, if you’d like to uncover more of this location, you may want to rent a car; your hotel concierge can assist you with making arrangements with a local car rental company. We always recommend careful and cautious driving in Europe as roads can be old, narrow and with high volumes of traffic.
Rome has an efficient public transportation system. The Rome Metro is an extensive network of rapid transit railway lines that run mostly underground in central Rome, through the important landmarks, as well as into the city’s suburbs. Choosing the right ticket is essential to taking full advantage of the Rome’s Metro system.
