Travelling has always been my passion. However, travelling isn’t just a vacation. There are other several essentials we need to also look into. For instance transportation. How to get around the city?
Car: It isn’t advisable to rent a car or driving around with your car in Rome. The traffic is insane. Opting for a scooter is a better option. However, if you are going farther from the city booking a taxi or taking an Uber is would be an option.
Public Transport: Public transport is the best way to move around the city. Buses, Trams, Metros. An individual ticket for buses trams and metro is €1,50 for 100 minutes.
Buses: Buses are operated by ATAC. You can buy your tickets in any metro station, newsstand, vending machines or convenience store.
Metro: The underground metro lines are the quickest way moving around. Metro in Rome has three lines. the main station is Roma Termini.
Tram – Like the subway and bus system, Trams tickets cost €1.50
If you are there in Rome for 3 days I would recommend buying the Roma Pass only €38 and will get you full access to public transportation, admission to two museums, and discounts on performance and exhibition tickets.
What is the best neighbourhood for budget travellers
Monti is the oldest part of Rome. It is between Colosseum and Via Nazionale. The neighbourhood is nicely filled with cafe’s, restaurants and bars. If it’s your first time in Rome I would recommend this neighbourhood.
Rome has tons of hostel options. My recommended places on a budget are:
San Lorenzo is commonly known as Rome’s working-class and student district. Walking distance to the east of the city centre. The neighbourhood is lively with many shops, bars and local restaurants.
Best Places to stay in San Lorenzo:
Trastevere: This is one of the best places to stay in Rome, especially if it’s your first time in Rome. It is beautiful and so colourful with picturesque colourful buildings, cobblestone streets, flowered filled balconies.
Best Places to stay in Trastevere:
La Regola one of my favourite. Delicious food, great wine fantastic, friendly service. A quiet little place, away from the tourist bustle. I love their Homemade pasta and of course do try their tiramisu.
La Regola is only 0.3 km from Campo de’ Fiori.
