The metro tends to bypass most of historic old Rome - thats because there is still so much of ancient Rome beneath the modern city that they can't dig a tunnel for the trains without running into 2,000 year-old brick walls, mosaic pavements, and marble columns! The ATAC buses and trams do go into the centre though and can be really handy.

We found the H BUs route: Termini (Viale Einaudi) - Via Nazionale - Piazza Venezia - Largo Argentina - Ponte Garibaldi - Viale Trastevere (for evening meals outs) to be the most useful.

Type: Bus
