If you’re planning a trip to Rome or a vacation, knowing a little about how to get around using public transport will greatly enhance your experience. The main rail station in Rome is Termini and there are trains direct from Leonardo da Vinci airport. The trains depart about every 30 minutes and the trains arrive at platform 25 which is about 400 metres from the main station. From Termini you can reach the Best Western Hotel Canada which is close to the Colosseum by taking the number 75 bus.
Other Ways to Travel to the Centre of Rome
You may choose to take the Metropolitan train from the airport, they don’t stop at Termini but stop at Tiburtina and Ostiense stations which allow easy access to the Metro using Line B. Alternatively you might choose to alight at Trastevere and take the Number 8 tram to Largo Argentina or Campo Fiori. If you’re heading for one of the city’s hotels such as the Best Western Hotel Canada in the centre of Rome, you’ll find that it’s fairly easy to get to by tram, train or bus.
