Rome has 3 metro lines:
- Line A, also known as “Linea A” (orange line).
- Line B, also known as “Linea B” (blue line).
- Line C, also known as “Linea C” (green line).
Lines A and B intersect at Termini, the central station of the city, while the new Line C connects to San Giovanni station. Line C is rarely used by tourists as it connects the south-eastern part of Rome with the suburbs.

Does the Rome Metro Connect to the Airport?
No. The metro does not go to either Fiumicino Airport or Ciampino Airport.

Tips for the Rome Metro
Regarding safety, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your personal belongings, as in any other major capital city, as “pickpockets” are lurking.
Also, there are quite frequent strikes (in Italian: sciopero, pronounced “soperro”), and as a result, the metro may either run with limited service or remain closed. It’s a good idea to check the official website of the Rome public transport authority before you go.
