With the Rome City Pass with public transport and airport, you can use the metro lines in Rome A, B and C, the buses, the tram, the regional trains and the suburban trains in the city center area free of charge. There is no need to purchase another ticket and you can travel as much through Rome as you like during the validity period. 

Public transport in Rome

Validity: The validity of your optionally public transport ticket begins when you validate it for the first time at a vending machine before you start your journey.

Trips to the attractions: By Metro line A you reach the San Giovanni (Basilica) stop, from where you can stroll down the shopping street "Via Appia Nuova". From the Spagna stop you can directly visit the Spanish Steps and the city center, and from the Barberini stop it is only a short walk to the Trevi Fountain. The Metro line B takes you directly to the Colosseum and the nearby Roman Forum.

From Termini Central Station to the Vatican
The ATAC bus line 64, popular with tourists, takes you through the center of Rome to St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Courtyards and the Vatican Museums. It goes from Termini via Piazza Venezia (from here you can also reach the Capitol, Forum Romanum, Colosseum and Trevi Fountain), via Largo Argentina (from here you can reach Pantheon, Piazza Navona) to St. Peter's Square. The bus stops there to the left of the colonnades (Via di Porta Cavalleggeri). On the way, there are numerous other stops on line 64 in Rome. Alternatively, you can take the faster express bus 40, which also runs from Termini station to Peter’s Square and stops only at the main stops mentioned above. The final stop on this line is the Angel Castle or near Parco Adriano. You should allow about 30 – 45 minutes for the journey. Another alternative to get from Termini Station to the Vatican, is to use the metro line A to reach the Vatican quickly. The Metro A stop is at the Vatican Ottaviano-San Pietro or Cipro-Musei Vaticani.

Your Rome City Pass also includes a day trip on the Hop-on Hop-off Bus, which will take you to the main attractions with additional commentary.

A small insider tip is also tram line 3, which departs from Trastevere railway station and passes Pyraminden, the Colosseum, San Giovanni, the church of Santa Croce and many other places of interest on its way. The trip ends at the zoo, at the back of which is Villa Borghese with the famous Galleria Borghese.

Airport transfer Rome (included in the Rome City Pass with public transport and airport)

Airport transfer Fiumicino: The SIT bus shuttle will take you quickly to the main station of Rome (Termini) and Fiumicino airport. The shuttle bus serves the following stops: Fiumicino city, Fiumicino airport, Aurelia street, Vatican and last the main station of Rome (Termini). From the airport, the shuttle bus departs from the first stop (number 12). Turn right in the arrivals hall and proceed to the bus station. Each bus also has free WIFI on board and usually departs every half hour. SITBus recommends to be at the bus stop at least 15 minutes before departure. Children up to the age of 4 travel free when accompanied by an adult, if they do not need their own seat. 

Airport transfer Ciampino: Take bus lines n.720 and n.520 for transfers between Ciampino Airport and the city center. Line n.720 connects the airport with Metro B station Laurentin, line n.520 connects the airport with metro A stations Subaugusta and Cinecittà. Both airport connections at Fiumicino and Ciampino airports are already included in your "Rome City Pass with public transport and airport", so you do not need to buy an additional ticket.

Attention: The buses and metros in Rome can quickly become crowded with people. Therefore, take good care of your valuables and bags, as pickpockets like to use the crowd.   

Use your "Roma Pass" card for an excursion to Ostia, the original port city of ancient Rome. The Lido di Ostia is particularly popular with Romans and tourists as the nearest seaside resort and has a lot to offer away from the hustle and bustle of the big city! Simply take the underground line B from Roma Termini or Roma Tiburtina in the direction of Laurentina and get off at the Pyramide stop. From here, take the Rome-Lido line to the Lido Centro stop. Here you have a variety of restaurants and beaches to choose from, inviting you to relax and sunbathe!
Our beach recommendations: Al Curvone, La Spiaggetta, Piazza dei Canotti, Canale dei Pescatori, Faber Beach, Punta Ovest and I Cancelli. The Battistini beach (Lungomare Paolo Toscanelli) is not free, but offers a perfect service, sun beds and umbrellas, friendly staff and a restaurant with delicious seafood cuisine, pizza and pasta.
Other sights in Ostia: Besides the numerous beaches, Ostia has many other sights to offer. For example, a visit to the Pontile di Ostia pier or the charming fishing village of Borghetto dei Pescatori, where time seems to stand still, is recommended. The church of Santa Maria Regina Pacis is also worth a visit. We also recommend you visit the excavation site and former port city of Scavi di Ostia Antica.
