BUS TRAM METRO

Sightseeing Rome on foot is indeed an exhausting enterprise. The public transport system of the underground, trams and buses gets you to the major tourist sites and attractions quicker. Bearing this in mind, we suggest purchasing a Roma Pass, costing 25 Euros and entitling card holders to use public transport for three days running, as well as benefit from discounts in museums, at tourist sites, shops and theatres.

A wide range of different kinds of tickets and season tickets are available with the Metrebus Roma system.

BOATS IN ROME

It is slightly rash to regard the Tiber as an alternative throughway  to get about the city, although it does serve as a fabulous opportunity to enjoy a relaxing panoramic trip. A number of different kinds of cruises, sponsored by Rome City Council, have in fact been working both day and night for a number of years.

The boat trips run both on an around 6 km. stretch of river running past some of the city’s most evocative and historically interesting sites from Ponte Risorgimento to Tiber Island (Isola Tiburina), and south of the city from Ponte Marconi as far as the archaeological site of Ostia Antica.

After Paris, London, Prague, it is Rome’s turn to rediscover the charm of boating and getting a totally different point of view from its very own river, the celebrated Tiber.

Bookings: Call Centre +39 06 97745498 or directly at a Last Minute Sales Point at embarkations at Castel Sant’Angelo or Isola Tiberina.
