Rome has a long history which takes us back to BC times when it was founded by twin brothers Romulus and Remus on the Tiber River. During the 1st century, Rome was under the rule of powerful emperors like Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, and Octavian (later Augustus).


Later on, Rome expanded from Britain to the Middle East under emperors Trajan, Hadrian, and Marcus Aurelius.

Rome faced a decline and economic challenges during the time of the last Roman Emperor Romulus Augustulus. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the Eastern Roman Empire also known as Byzantine Empire started rising and it influenced the city's cultural and religious landscape, and the Papal State was established as a Vatican City.

As we traveled to Rome from Munich, we took a short flight of 1 hour and 30 minutes. 


By Train: 


There are many different train connections from different European cities to Rome and it’s highly accessible reaching to Rome by train. You can check the train tickets using the app called Omio. It’s also possible to take a Night train from Munich but it’s a long journey. 


If you’re traveling within Italy, you can also check the tickets at Trenitalia.



By Bus: 


This is one of our least favorite ways to travel to use long journey buses, but there are lots of different buses from local and European cities that come to Rome. 


How to reach to Rome City from Rome–Fiumicino International Airport:


Rome–Fiumicino International Airport is a little far from the city, but it is highly accessible to reach to Airport by public transport. Once you go out from the baggage collection area, just follow the signs to the train station and it has a walk of around 10 minutes inside the airport.

There are ticketing booths outside the train station but you can also buy it online using the Trenitalia app. Don’t forget to validate the ticket whether it’s online or physical ticket before entering the train. The cost of the ticket is Euro 14 for the direct train and it takes around 50 minutes to reach the Roma Termini (Rome Central station). 


You can also book an Uber from the airport but be aware that the Uber has a specific pick-up point depending on the type of Uber you’re booking.  The price of uber to Rome city varies from Euro 50-60.




How to use Public Transportation in Rome: 


To make your trip easy in Rome, it’s important to get a little familiarity with public transportation so you can easily commute within the city. 


Roma has a well-connected public transport system and all the main tourist landmarks are easily accessible by public transport. Many of Rome’s attractions are within walking distance of each other. It has Metro lines, Trams, and Buses covering the entire city. The Metro has three different lines A, B & C and it’s a quick way to travel from one place to another. 


Rome Termini
Rome Central Station

But you have to be careful in public transport from pickpockets, especially in crowded metro stations.


If you’re using a Metro, it’s important to take the right exits by following the signs where you want to exit. 


Validate your ticket using the machines onboard buses or at tram stops before you start your journey.

You can either take a single ticket which is valid for one journey and valid for up to 100 minutes and it costs Euro 1.50 or you can also take a 24-hour, 48-hour, or 72-hour ticket as it helps to avoid the hustle of buying the ticket every time. 


You can purchase the ticket at the booths near the metro stations but it’s often crowded or you can also buy a ticket from newsstands and tobacco shops but we would recommend you to buy the ticket online. We used the App called “Mooney Go” to buy the online tickets and be aware that you should validate the ticket.



There’s also another difference between the Metro stations in Germany and Italy there’s a barrier/gate to enter the Metro station near the Tram area and you have to scan the ticket to open the Barrier.

You can also buy Roma Pass which allows you to use public transport for 48 or 72 hours along with free entry to two museums or archaeological sites. Check more details about Rome Pass.  


The Metro normally doesn’t run after 11:30 so be aware to check the connection using Google Maps or “Mooney Go”. This happened to us when we reached Rome after 11:30 and we couldn’t find any public transport to reach our Hotel so we had to take Uber. 




Note: Be sure to validate your ticket before boarding and keep it with you until the end of your journey, and avoid eating or drinking on public transportation.
