Although Rome is one of the big capitals of the world, the historical landmarks can be covered in a day on foot. Arrive early at the Colosseum before exploring the nearby Forum. Then head over to the Trevi Fountain and throw in a couple of coins, before continuing on to the Pantheon, after which you can enjoy some well-earned refreshments in one of the cafes on the Piazza Navona.
Best in terms of convenience and value, the Public Transit Bus service runs 24 hours a day and covers the whole city. Buy your tickets at a nearby tobacconist and validate them by punching them into the ticket counter on the bus. If you're visiting for a long weekend, it's worth purchasing a 3-day pass that gives you unlimited access to bus and metro.
Rome has two metro lines, and you can spot them by looking out for the large M signs. Line A, the red line, stops off at the Vatican and Spanish Steps, while Line B, the blue line, includes a stop at the Colosseum. Your Metro ticket will be valid for the buses also.
The official taxis are white and have a meter, but note that prices will double after 10pm. Uber is legal and used in Rome, although the cost tends to be higher than that of the white cabs.
Hiring a car in Rome is a fun way to get around the city, especially if you have children, and Holiday Extras provides car hire at a reasonable price. Be prepared for Italian drivers tooting their horn on a regular basis – all part of the cultural experience of being in Rome!
