Closest rail station to Rome's Colosseum from Civitavecchia

On a recent 17-day cruise on the Norwegian EPIC we docked at the Port of Civitavecchia. From there we boarded the first train out of the Civitavecchia Railway Station and made our... read more

We used this service twice in Rome; once during the week and once on a Sunday. Both experiences were massively different! The weekday was a smooth 30 minutes in and out, in comparison on Sunday we were stuck for 90 minutes to drop off. The wait in unavoidable and doesn't take away from the service but you just need to... More

When we got on the train, it was a bit packed. My two children, husband and myself wheeled our suitcases in and stood while we traveled from the airport to Termini Station. Buy your tickets at the vending machine type terminal before getting on. They will check for your tickets.

Buy your tickets in a smoke shop or from the machines from the Metro platform. There are no machines on main floors of Termini. Of course it is jammed pack with people, just know and accept it. Pay attention to the signs and you will be fine! System is easy to navigate and super convenient to all of Romans attractions.... More

Just today we were there at the main train station for like 3 hours before the train time and it was so chaotic (which can be understood because this is the main train station in Rome) and one of the worst Train Stations we have ever seen in entire Eurooe.No seating or waiting area is there for travellers, no air...

The station is an excellent hub and easy to navigate even for first time visitors. Plenty of shops and cafes. My only concern was that there were no security checks (but there were lots of guards and even soldiers scanning and checking civilians, as well as cctv cameras all over the place (esp in the platforms). All in all, a... More

Although it's huge, with hundreds and hundreds of people moving around, everything appears to be running smoothly and it's easy to find your way around to get on a bus, metro, train or the shuttle buses to the airports.

Doing a small bit of research before visiting Termini to purchases tickets/catch a train. Finding out if you have to validate you ticket or if you need to be in a certain carriage helps immensely. Don't expect much help at the station. Be wary of pickpockets at all times and be safe, this place has a ridiculous reputation as being... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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 vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
