The Rome Metro is the subway system of the city of Rome in Italy. It is managed by ATAC, the owners of all of the public transportation in Rome. The metro was officially inaugurated on February 16th, 1980. It has three lines and 73 stations. The metro makes connections with all of the public transportation in Rome, which includes buses, light railways and trams. The metro makes a connection with the FL suburban train or with the Leonardo Express trains to go to the airport. The metro opens every day from 5:30 am to 11:30 pm on weekdays. The prices for the metro’s tickets start from €1.50 and can be paid with tickets, subscriptions or cards. Carrying a map is recommended due to the confusing layout of Rome's roads. Parking is available at stations. Line C was dug below 25 meters underground to avoid destroying old artifacts. A new line, line D, will be constructed. You can visit attractions such as The Colosseum using the metro.
Rome is the capital of Italy. It is also the capital of the Lazio region. It has a population of over 2.7 million people. Rome is one of the most influential cities of all time in history because it was the capital of an empire that lasted over 2000 years, spreading its culture and religion to the whole world. Due to Rome's history, part of the city is protected by the UNESCO. Its history also makes it attractive to tourists worldwide. Nowadays, it is famous for sightseeing, fashion, and for doing shopping. It is divided into the following districts: Vatican, Modern Centre, Colosseo, Old Rome, Trastevere, North Centre, Nomentano, Aventino - Testaccio, and Esquilino - San Giovanni.
There are two airports in Rome: Leonardo da Vinci/Fiumicino International Airport, which is the biggest airport, and G.B. Palestine/Ciampino International Airport. Rome has high traffic, therefore, it is not recommended to drive if you are in the city for the first time. The city's means of public transportation include light railways, trams, buses, trolleybuses and the metro. All of these means of transportation are owned by ATAC (Tramways Company and Coach of the Municipality of Rome).
The E42 Railway, the predecessor of the Rome Metro, was originally planned to be built in the 1930s as a means to connect the region of EUR with the station of Termini. However, World War 2 interrupted the construction of this railway system. The construction continued in 1947. The E42 Railway was originally inaugurated on June 28th, 1953. However, since there were barely any passengers, the E42 Railway was closed down. The E42 Railway was reopened in its official inauguration on February 9th, 1955.
The construction of the Rome Metro was approved in 1959. It was originally planned to have its first station in Anagnina.
