Getting Around

Subway

•One of the best subway systems in the world. It’s cheap, clean and easy to learn.

•Closes at 1:30AM, opens at 6AM (why people usually stay out until the metro opens).

•If you use the subway on a regular basis, you can get the abono (monthly pass) at an estanco (tobacco stand). The abono is cheaper if you’re under 21, make sure you ask!

•Pick-pocketing happens most often on the subway. Hold your bags very close to you and be aware of your belongings (especially during rush hours).

Buses

•Really easy to use.

•Night buses run after the subway closes, but sometimes it is better to take a taxi than search for a night bus.

•The 51 is right by campus and takes you right to Sol.

Taxis

•The best late night transportation.

•If you are alone at night, most cab drivers will usually wait until you open your front door before driving away.

Walking

•The best way to see the city.
