Where to stay?

hello. going away with girlfriends in february for a long weekend.

flying into da vinci so are looking for a hotel that is near a train stop but central to sights. we are mostly interested in seeing the Colosseum and Vatican city so somewhere that's central to these areas.

as we are a female group, we are looking for a safe area where we can get transport to/from easily.

thanks in advance.

Colosseum and Vatican areas are rather far each from another. Noticing that you have just few days, the best would be staying close to one of them, because you can't stay close to both. The bus 81 is very useful to connect these areas, maybe better than the metro (the bus is straight, instead by metro you'd have to change; and by bus you could see a little of Rome during the journey).

From Fiumicino you can take the train FR1 to Roma Ostiense, then the metro B to the Colosseum; or the FR1 to Roma Trastevere, then the other train FR3 to Roma San Pietro in the Vatican area. No use taking the other train Leonardo Express from Fiumicino to Termini, it is much more expensive (14 euros; the FR1 8 euros).
