From Fiumicino airport take the Leonardo Express train or the Cotral bus to Roma Termini. From Termini take bus number 40 (Borgo Sant'Angelo) and get off at Ponte Vittorio Emanuele (6th stop). Continue on foot for 400m. A taxi from the airport costs a fixed rate by day, printed on the car door.


From Ciampino take the coach to Roma Termini then follow the indications above. For those a little more adventurous, there's an ordinary bus service that takes you to Anagnina Metro on the red line. From there you can get anywhere in the city and all or the price of a single bus ticket: €1.50!


Termini is Rome's principal train station and public transport hub so if you're coming to the eternal city by rail that's probably where you'll end up. Second to that is Roma Tiburtina, which is just four stops from Termini on the blue metro line. This is also the arrival point of Italy's national Cotral coach service.


Whether you're arriving from north or south, hit the city's ring road and follow signs for the centre. Residenza Ave is on the Lungotevere - that's the road that runs the length of the River Tiber all the way through the city. We're on the northbound side, so if you're coming from the north cross the bridge after Castel Sant'Angelo.


You'll find that thanks to the fantastic central location of the Residenza Ave almost all of the most famous landmarks, monuments and sights in Rome are within walking distance, including Piazza Navona, Castel Sant'Angelo, St Peter's Basilica and the Spanish Steps. For those that aren't, see below.


Rome's most famous landmark is about a half an hour on foot. If you're not the walking type, take the metro from Piazza di Spagna or the number 40 bus back to Termini. The Colosseum is then two stops down on the blue line. Right by the Colosseum are also the Roman Forums, Palatine Hill and Circus Maximus.


Arguably Rome's most characteristic neighbourhood, full of trattorias and stalls, Trastevere literally means 'Across the River'. If you make your way past Piazza Navona down to Largo Argentina (where an ancient monument is also a cat sanctuary!) you can get the number 8 tram from there.


Nearby Via dei Coronari is home to all of Rome's most prestigious antique shops, while the whole neighbourhood is also famous for its boutiques and artisan studios. For high end designers go to Via dei Condotti by the Spanish Steps. For high street brands, it's Via del Corso, the spine road of Rome.

If you're here for a while we'd definitely recommend getting out of Rome to one of Lazio's idyllic towns, where you'll eat truly divine Italian cuisine and catch sight of breathtaking countryside. An hour on the train from Termini can take you to a whole new world and it won't cost the earth either.
