metro tickets

Can someone give me some information on subway tickets. We will be in Rome for three days, is there a multiple day pass for 3 days? Are the passes bought at machines inside the terminals, or do you buy them at a tobacco shop? Thanks for the help.

There are 3-day passes available but if you are staying in the city center I doubt you will be using the metro or bus everyday. The city center is small, making walk your best option to sightsee.

Individual tickets & passes are available at newspaper stands and tobacco shops. There are ticket machines at the metro stops but they are frequently broken.

one week pass is €12, or as stated use 3 €3 day-passes. At the metro stops there are machines as well.

OR, use the 110 red busses as your transport/tour or rome. Its I think €13 for a day pass, but it covers the city, you get a tour when you're on it, you can jump on and off throughout the city and its pickpocket free!

Or you can be really tricky and just jump on.. there is a bit of an honour system in Rome as few inspectors get on.

If you do get caught, the fine is €110 on the spot. If they ask you for €20 and they promise to let you off, do no pay - its a bribe and it happens A LOT. If you EVER pay a fine in Rome, make sure you get a VALID reciept with a date AND a signature on it.

But in then end.. is it worth it?
