How to get to the DL-2012 venue

Public Transportation

Metro, Buses and Streetcars

The Roman metro has two lines, A (red) and B (blue), which cross at Termini Central Station. Trains run approximately every 5-10 minutes, from 5:30am until 11.30pm every day (until 1:30am on Fridays and Saturdays).

There are hundreds of bus lines, running from 5:30am till midnight. During the night (from midnight to 5:30 a.m.) night buses are available (they have different routes and timetables).

Tickets for both the bus system and Metro can be purchased from tobacconists, bars, or vending machines at metro stations and major bus stops. Main Ticket options are

For timetables and public transport maps visit official site of public transportation in Rome – ATAC S.p.A.


If you need a taxi, remember to look for the official white taxis. There are taxi ranks in many locations throughout the center, but is nearly impossible to hail one driving down the streets, particularly at night. To call for a taxi within Rome, try 06 3570, 06 4994, 06 6645, 06 551, or 06 8822.

Among the many locations, there are kiosks at the Railroad Station, in Via del Corso, Via Nazionale, Pza Sonnino in Trastevere, Pza San Giovanni, Santa Maria Maggiore and the Vatican.
