"Subway in Rome - Metropolitana" Metro - Subway Tip by SiCkb0y

Metro - Subway, Rome: 44 reviews and 65 photos

The most importent places in Rome can be reached with the two subway lines that Rome has to offer (marked 'linea A' and 'linea B').
When on the train it is important to keep your eyes wide open for a couple of reasons.
Firstly - pickpockets. Although I did't have any experience with them, I've been warned that even children can sometimes lift somebody's wallet... And because the subway trains are really crowded in the rush-hours, it's not hard to do that unnoticed.
And the other thing is - you need to be careful where you get on and off the train. There is no screen informing about next stations and the recorded voice informing about the next station doesn't always work. So my tip: don't check only the name of the station where you want to get off - memorize the name of the station before as well. Then you'll be prepared and can get to the door in time :)
One more thing - the trains often go the opposite direction than indicated, so before you get on ut's better to be ure if you're on the right side of the station :)
