Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot

I am pretty sure you can get tickets at any of the stops, but we bought ours at the main stop by the station. We told them we could get them on line cheaper so they gave us a discount.
