Rome, the Italian capital, is a spectacular city! Everyone knows that, but when I say it is a spectacular city, I mean beyond history, culture, monuments and the like: Rome, being a big city, offers tourists an impressive infrastructure! It presents us with a multitude of accommodation options, excellent places to eat, shops, bars and, of course, an (almost) impeccable public transport network. I say almost, because during peak hours, you can find the metro a bit full, considering that the Romans themselves use the means of transport to get to and from work, so I leave you with the tip: avoid the subway during opening hours peak, which is between 07:30 am until 9:00 am and between 17:00 and 19:00.
Apart from that…
Use and abuse the Roman metro, especially if you are staying near any station in the famous Metropolitana. To learn everything about the Rome subway, I invite you to read the post How to use the subway in Rome? – here, you will find ALL the pertinent information if you intend to use this fast, safe and spectacular means of transport.

Let’s get to know a little of the Rome Subway
Well, in a quick summary, the Rome subway currently divides into practically two lines: Line A and Line B. Line A runs from Anagnina-Battistini station and crosses the historic center, including the Vatican area. Line B, on the other hand, runs from Rebibbia – Laurentina and we also have line C, which already has some active stations, but is still in the expansion phase and will cover the route that currently does not have coverage from the previous lines. Now we are going to tell you about where to stay near Rome subway! I advise reading: What is the difference between hotel categories in Italy?
1) Where to stay near Rome subway? OTTAVIANO AND CIPRO STATIONS
A good accommodation option for those who want to use the subway is the San Pietro and Prati area: here you will find numerous accommodation options with fair prices and close to two stations: Ottaviano and Cipro. If we consider the Colosseum, we are not so in the center, but the journey – by subway – is fast and without major problems. Here we are on the right side of the Tiber, close to the Vatican and, at night, if you want, you can take a half-hour ride to the delightfull neighborhood of Trastevere.

2) Where to stay near Rome subway? TERMINI STATION
It is impossible not to mention the Termini Station area, which is Rome central station and offers access to the railway and subway lines. The only unpleasant thing about this area is that, especially at night, it is not one of the safest areas in Rome for those who want to stroll around the city at night, although it is a well-policed and monitored area.
Is it worth it?
If you intend to go out on foot at night, honestly, not much, but if you intend to spend your nights at the hotel, resting peacefully, it can be a great option, as the rates here are generally cheaper than you would pay in the historic center of the city. Another neighborhood nearby is San Lorenzo, the university heart of Rome due to the renowned University of Sapienza, the largest in Europe. For those who LOVE to go out at night, it can be a great option!

3) Where to stay near Rome subway? CAVOUR STATION
Another location with a metro station close by is the Monti region, the ancient suburb of Rome where Julius Caesar was born. This region is close to Trajan’s markets and the Imperial Forums and is considered one of the most elegant areas of Rome today. Here you will find the Cavour Station, very centrally located in the neighborhood, in addition to the famous Via Panisperna and several small restaurants scattered along the seductive cobbled streets. Considered a very expensive area, but very central. If you want, on foot, you can reach the Colosseum, Quirinale, Via Nazionale, and even the Fontana di Trevi. It is a very quiet neighborhood!

Good to know…
As we said earlier, Rome offers a multitude of great places to stay, and we could write a book with them all. It is also worth remembering that if you want to stay in the center and do not use public transport, it is possible. “Ah Ana Patrícia, but it is expensive!” – yea! It is a little more expensive, but consider that you will have everything very close. Find out here what to do in Rome when it rains!
Remember that the secret to getting good prices, including accommodation, is to research and make your reservation in advance. It is also important to be aware that, during festive periods (Christmas, New Year, Easter and high season), accommodation tends to increase prices in all areas, including the less sought after ones, since the city tends to be crowded and the rooms end up as a bottle of cold water in the desert!
