This popular tool provides detailed information on route planning and points of interest. Google Maps is very user-friendly and provides real-time updates on all public transportation lines, including Trenitalia’s regional trains.
Just like Moovit, Google Maps offers multiple routes to reach your destination. In addition, it provides information about the arrival time of vehicles through the “Schedule Explorer” option.
In general, Moovit is the most recommended for planning routes by public transportation in Rome, simply because it was designed for this purpose. Google Maps, on the other hand, lacks some important functionalities that Moovit does have.
Google Maps is preinstalled on most Android smartphones. If you don’t have it, you can download it for free or use the web version (with limited functionality).
