Useful Links for Living in Rome

 

For living, working or simply vacationing in Italy, we have selected a few links that we consider very useful for anyone who has just arrived in Rome. If this is your first time in Italy, we suggest you take a look at some of the following web sites. Unless specified all web sites are in English or have an English section.

Transportation:

Limousine Service - Multilingual sophisticated Limousine service and airport pick-up. Also car serviced individual and/or group tours of Rome and day excursions anywhere in the Italian peninsula! Extremely reliable and professional.

Public transportation (subway and buses) - Don't be fooled by the good looking web site, public transportation is inefficient to say the least: buses are late with swiss regularity, and the subway is very small.

Trains - Trains in Italy vary. Fast trains "Eurostar" are comfortable, and often without delays.

Taxis - Finding a taxi in the streets of Rome is very easy, convincing the driver to stop is a lot harder. Do as the Romans do, call. Service is usually very fast for most central areas of town. A list of telephone numbers of some of the major authorized companies follows:

06/3570

06/4157

06/4994

06/6645

Airports - There are two airports in Rome. Leonardo Da Vinci is the main airport, with national and international flights. Ciampino is mostly for commercial and charter flights.
