It also runs local and long-distance (and school) buses.

The 'hub' of their local bus area is Foggia. For town-to-town routes you need to click on 'linee a lungo raggio', which brings up a search engine.

It's not a street as such, and it doesn't detail the pick-up point in Rome when one searches, only timetables. You could phone or email them to find out. According to google they also have an office(?) at 23 Via Principe Amedeo (which is near Termini bus/train station). +39 06 48916378

Travel Tips for Rome

The bridges of Rome

by Laura_Mexico

This is a nice view of the bridges of Rome on the Tevere river -- this picture was taken from the top of the Castel St. Angelo, but you can have this wonderful view anytime you stroll along the river, which I highly recommend you to do!! I was with my friend Kalle close to the Castel St. Angelo when I showed him this view and he liked it very much and was impressed with the beauty of it... Indeed, he just wrote & recorded a song called 'Bridges of Rome' (which is lovely, too!) and this picture inspired him quite a bit...

Catacombs

by tvor

Tourists to go to see the catacombs but it doesn't seem to be on the top of most lists. We were of two minds whether to take the option tour and in the end we did.

The San Callisto Catacombs were just a Christian cemetery, not a refuge for people being persecuted. Very interesting though and the guide that took us must have been Methuselah's father or one of the original gravediggers! But he was very interesting and really knew his information but you really had to stick with him going through the corridors because you really could get lost in there and it wasn't a place for claustrophobics. You went down 3 or 4 flights of stairs into narrow passageways who's walls were very high, several stories deep. The graves were dug out of the walls and went up 4 or 5 levels up. Turns out they started at the top and dug down as it got filled up and there are several more levels beneath the one we saw. The graves are now all empty on that level, the bones had been moved to one of the other levels as it would be disrespectful for all these tourists to be gawping at them. There are little family chapels dug in as well with the remnants of decorations on the walls. It was quite cool and self ventilating too which surprised us.

By train from Roma airport to Civitavecchia

by abraxa

The local train solution suggested in the previous answer is certanly the cheapest and relatively comfortable, here in more details:
At the airport railway station buy the ticket to Civitavecchia, is around 8€ one way.
Take the train to Trastevere station (every 20 min)and change platform to take the local to Civitavecchia or any train to Pisa/Genova/Grosseto. (every 25 mins. and main trains might require an extra charge on ticket)
When in Civitavecchia you are about 2,5km north of your hotel. You might ask the Hotel to pick you up or take a taxi, BUT if you do, make sure you ask in advance the cost witha a nice "Quanto costa per l'hotel Sunbay?" Now, 5€ should be adeguate but expect as much as 10-12€. cest'la vìe!
Total average time from airport to Sunbay, if you dont 'miss connections: just less than2 hours.
If you have time to visit Civitavecchia before you sail it might be worthed. Ask if you need further info.

Only the Beautiful View Surpassed the Food

by Goner about Ristoranti Monteripoli

The restaurant sits high upon a hill in Tivoli overlooking Rome and the surrounding hills. Italian minstrals serenaded us and we sang and toasted to our last night in Italy. We had the usual course; bread and wine, antipasto and wine, pasta and wine, main course and wine, salad, fruit, dessert, and good stong coffee. It was all good, maybe because of all the wine?

BATTLEGROUND

by BerniShand

An amazing sight as you drive by, the Colosseum is the iconic landmark of Rome
its wearing well considering its almost 2,000 year age and the graceful arches draw you towards it

of course there is a queue, and in late July its a long one...make sure you have a headcover the sun was merciless and a lot of time is spent queing outside

eventually you are inside, passing through one of the 80 arched entrances, up to 55,000 spectators could fit in here in its heyday to watch the gladiators or the wild beasts fight it out.
The arena floor is long gone, but this gives you a view of the rooms below where the animals were housed, and the combatants waited, and you can get an idea of how the lifts, which brought them up to the arena floor, worked
at one time the spectators were shaded by a canvas canopy tethered to the bollards outside and the high arches keep the interior as cool as possible

do take the official guided tour if you can, the enthusiastic guides give great information, also inside is a museum of artefacts from the period, these come from several sites in Italy and while they are very interesting we had hoped the museum would bear more relation to the use and history of the Colloseum

there is limited access around the arena for wheelchairs and a lift to the first floor

the correct name is the Flavian Amphitheatre, the name Collosseum is thought to come from the very large statue of the Colossus of Nero which was nearby
