GETTING AROUND ROME

The best way to get around Rome is on foot.
Many of the best attractions are clustered together in traffic-free zones.
A nonstop express train (the Leonardo Express) can take you from the Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport (FCO) to the Rome Termini railway station in a little more than 30 minutes; one-way tickets cost 14 euros. Buses are also available. 
Metro: in Rome runs three lines and you’ll find stations scattered throughout the city marked by signs with a big red “M” on them.
You can buy tickets for 1.50 euros  one-way at some metro stations and convenience stores throughout the city.
Alternatively, if you plan on relying on public transportation for most of your trip to Rome, you might want to purchase a 24-hour card for 7 euros; a 48-hour card for 12.50 euros; or a 72-hour card for 18 euros. If you purchased a Roma Pass, your public transportation fares are covered by the pass.

WHAT TO EAT IN ROME

Rome is full of restaurants, from trattorias that cook up family recipes spanning generations to fusion restaurants that plate up the latest culinary trend.
Don’t miss out on Roman specialties – such as artichokes, which are so beloved they have a protected status from the European Union. Try them at the Jewish district “Ghetto”. Cacio e Pepe is a simple pasta dish flavored with Pecorino Romano cheese and black pepper, and it originated in Rome. If you add smoked pork jowl and egg, you get another Roman pasta dish, carbonara.
Any Roman will agree, the best way to whet your appetite before digging into a personal pizza is with fritti: deep-fried goodies that are tasty, comforting and oh-so-satisfying. A classic choice is the supplì, a fried rice-ball mixed with ragù and mozzarella and cooked to perfection.   

Coffee is an art in Rome, and to enjoy one of the best espresso drinks, try out the Caffe Sant’Eustachio, established in 1938, or the Antigua Tazza d’Oro near the Pantheon.
