I was told by my travel agent to avoid the subway system in Rome. The difference in price between the two is very small and you get from point A to B directly. Is that true?
We will do alot of walking and when we get tired, i know we will want to take either the taxi or the subway. Is the subway that bad in terms of the crowded trains and pickpockets? Is the price of a taxi that reasonable? As a 30 something couple are we big targets for pickpockets?
We will be arriving in Rome on June 18, 2007 and will be staying near the Spanish steps.
Please give me some ideas or responses to this please. What are the legitimate Taxi operators and what is the cost? Thank you for the reply.
