My wife and I will be travelling to Rome for 3 days from 6th to 8th June and will be staying at Sheraton Golf Resort. I believe that the hotel is located quite far from the city centre where all the major attractions are situated so were trying to figure out the best way to commute within Rome.
The hotel runs a shuttle to the city centre which costs 4 eur so is very economical but sometimes the timings may not match (for eg we have a 9AM tour booked at the vatican). Also, we'd like to stay later at night (I believe the last shuttle back to the hotel leaves the city centre at 9PM) and would want to avoid taking taxis as much as possible (since they may cost quite a bit).
Can you suggest a travel pass (I read somewhere that there is a BTI tram pass for 3 days, dont have any details though) which would work well for us and also whether the area near the hotel is safe at night, esp if we need to walk from a tram or train stop.
FYI we plan to go to the Spanish steps area from the hotel on the first day and return late at night...second day early morning go to Vatican and central rome and third day go to colosseum and roman forum/walk around city centre..
request if you can share any travel tips..thanks a ton..
