Getting Around Rome


 
Travel & Tourism
Planning a trip to the Italian capital? There will be plenty to organise, including getting from the airport to your chosen accommodation. In reality, the Rome Ciampino airport transfer is typically fast and easy. The distance is only some 12 kilometres or so and the airport sits just alongside the main ring road. However, getting around in Rome once you’re there might be a little more challenging, at times, than that initial Rome Ciampino airport transfer.

Let’s have a quick look why and more importantly, what you can do about it.

The problem(s)

Some people think Rome is all about ancient sights and tourism. In practice, it is also the capital of Italy and seat of Italian government. In addition, it's the centre of the Catholic world and houses St Peter’s and Vatican City; it also happens to be a major centre of finance and enterprise.

What these things mean is that the city can be seriously busy at times and, like all large cities, its transport infrastructure can be stretched from time to time. (As an aside it's always best to book your Rome Ciampino airport transfer ahead of time, as they can get busy.) Firstly, the roads can be exceptionally busy and very confusing if you’re not used to city-centre driving in a large Italian metropolis. As a result, hiring a car and driving yourself around is not for the faint-hearted. In fact, large areas of the city centre are off-limits to cars other than those of residents or those with special permits. So, your hire car might not be able to get to where you want to go anyway

Buses, Trams and Metro

The public transport bus and tram system is called ATAC. The system is cheap, modern and efficient but in the case of buses, they can at times be subject to traffic delays. They also tend to stick to the main thoroughfares (understandably) and don’t cover many the city centre’s narrower street regions. Queuing is something of an alien culture all over Italy, so expect an undignified melee when trying to board at peak times.

The metro operates across two lines and like trams, it benefits from being free from traffic jams. On the downside, it too can be crowed at peak times and it doesn’t go near several of the major attractions for environmental reasons.

Taxis

They’re usually plentiful but remember, they too are subject to traffic and if you call one, you may find the price starts from the moment you commit to the deal over the phone. Even so, they may often be one of the most effective ways to get around town.

Feet

Ultimately, your own two feet may be the best way of getting easily around between the major sites and sights. On that score, there are three key tips:

• Think about selecting a city-centre hotel. Walking in constantly from the outskirts or outer areas might be tiring. • It may sound obvious but remember some very comfortable walking shoes. Tottering around in high fashion but impractical footwear is going to be a nightmare when touring this city. • Keep yourself hydrated in summer. The city can be hot in July and August so if you’re doing a lot of walking, drink plenty of fluids and take plenty of rest in the shade.

Your initial Rome Ciampino airport transfer should be easy and routine and with a little thought and planning the rest of your travel while there might prove to be likewise.

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct. If you’re looking for Rome Ciampino airport transfers, Shuttle Direct provide pre-booked shuttles to major destinations all over Europe. Wherever you travel, Shuttle Direct can make sure that you don’t miss your car on your holiday abroad.
