Getting To & Around Rome:
Compared to other large tourist cities, the metro options in Rome are quick limited to two main intersecting lines with fringe the core of the city. One line connects the train station to the Colosseum and the other connects the train station to the Vatican via the Spanish Steps. The routes can be very helpful, however you can expect to walk a lot near the heart of the main attractions. Traffic can be horrible so at peak times walking may even be a better option than taxis. The airport is very accessible by high speed rail in less than an hour.
