Getting around in Rome

Public Transportation

Numerous bus lines connect all areas of the city and they are operated by ATAC. The underground has two lines, Linea A and Linea B; the two underground lines intersect at Termini Railway station. The underground system is run by Met.Ro., together with some regional trains; some additional regional trains are operated by Trenitalia, the main national rail operator.

Taxis

Licensed taxis are white and can be recognised by the "TAXI" sign on the roof and by the identifying licence number on the doors. Do not take any car that is not an authorised Rome city taxi or trust people who approach you offering a private taxi service. In the city centre there are a number of ranks where taxis may be picked up. Taxis may also be hailed in the street by signalling the driver or by calling one of the taxi call centres, which will send you a vehicle. Please note that the taxi meter will start from the moment the taxi driver receives the call.
There is a fixed (flat rate) fee for taxis going between the city (defined as inside the Aurelian Walls - please note that the Conference venues is outside these walls) and the two airports, Fiumicino and Ciampino. The fixed fee to & from Fiumicino is 48 euros and to & from Ciampino is 30 euros.
For reservation call: 063570, 066645, 064994, 0688122, 064157, 065551.
