Rome Tram System Frequently Asked Questions

If this is your first time traveling to Rome, you may have some questions about the Rome Tram system, the tickets, maps, services and how to pay. Hopefully these answers will help you plan an unforgettable trip to Rome.

Do Trams Still Run In Rome?

Yes, there are still Trams running in Rome, but in a much more limited capacity than they have historically. In 1929, government-controlled company ATAG took control over the entire Tram network, and by the end of that year, the network had reached its largest footprint, with no fewer than 59 lines along 87 miles (140 km) of track.

How Do You Use The Tram In Rome?

There are tram stops all over Rome. They are sometimes at the same stops as the buses, and other times, they are on a raised platform in the middle of the street. Popular tram stops include: Termini Station, Piazza Venezia, Piazzale Flaminio (near Piazza del Popolo) and Ottaviano (near the Vatican). Check out the ATAC website for more information on the Rome Tram stops or take a look at the Rome tram map below.

Are Trams In Rome Reliable?

The answer to this question really depends on how you define “reliable”, because if you want to ride public transportation from one tram stop to another, then you probably won’t have any issues. If, however, you only want to ride a tram (not a bus or metro), you may be out of luck. It has been my experience that Rome trams are frequently unavailable, but they are replaced with buses that run along the same route, so you can reach the same points as with the Tram. For example, for much of 2023, the trams were replaced with buses while they repaired and maintained the tracks. Only late in the year did the Trams return.
