The tram network in Rome has six lines:

  • Line 2: Piazza Mancini – Piazzale Flaminio.
  • Line 3: Piazza Thorwaldsen – Trastevere.
  • Line 5: Giovanni Amendola – Piazza dei Gerani.
  • Line 8: Torre Argentina – Trastevere.

Personally, I prefer to use trams. This is truly the most convenient and frequent kind of public transport. Moreover, trams are cleaner and you have a higher chance to get a seat there, rather than in one of the buses that run in the historical center or during the traffic time.
