Never leave accommodation to the last minute
Hotels and apartments in Rome all get booked pretty fast. If you wait too long you're gonna miss out on the good ones. Book now to save yourself money and stress.
Unfortunately, tram stops don’t have maps of the lines they’re part of. The information displays only show the other stops on the lines and include the departure times of the first and last tram from the terminal stops.
If you wish to consult the route of a particular line, it’s best to use the Muoversi a Roma tool .
If you want to see the full network of trams, you can consult the official ATAC map:

However, it’s less useful for planning your trip. You’re better off using the tools mentioned above for that.
The tools below are very useful for planning trips by all means of transportation in Rome. They are all free and to use them during your stay, you will need a smartphone with an internet connection.
If you don’t have one, it’s best to plan your trip in advance. That way you know exactly which lines you can use and where you have to get on and off. When in doubt, you can always ask for directions at tourist information points or people on the street.
Roma Mobilità App
If you plan to use public transportation a lot during your stay in Rome, it’s highly recommended that you install this app on your smartphone.
The tool is specifically designed to plan routes and view waiting times at bus and tram stops in Rome. However, it’s only available in Italian but the interface is very intuitive, so you can still use it without any problems.
In some countries, the Roma Mobilità app is not available for smartphones. If you can’t install the app, it’s best to opt for Moovit or the web version of Muoversi a Roma (which has similar features and doesn’t require installation).
Muoversi a Roma
This app works in the same way as the Roma Mobilità app and is mainly useful for checking waiting times at bus and tram stops.
The website is only available in Italian, but its interface is intuitive enough to use if you don’t understand the language. With Muoversi a Roma, you can see on a map the route of each line and the current position of the buses or trams that are currently operating.
It also offers the possibility to calculate routes, but this feature often doesn’t work well. For this, you are better off using Google Maps or Moovit, which we will discuss later in this article.
Once you’re on the website, select the option “Cerca linea” or “Cerca fermata” to get information about a specific line or stop.
If you’ve chosen the option to obtain details of a stop, you must enter the stop’s identification code. This can be found on the information board of each stop.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for information about a specific line, you only need to enter the number or letter of the line.
Google Maps is a favorite of many. It has up-to-date information and offers a very clear and user-friendly interface. In addition, it always indicates whether there are better alternatives than the bus or tram for the route you specify.
This app doesn’t allow you to view waiting times in the same way as the tools mentioned above, but it does have up-to-date data and provides detailed information on the arrival of upcoming vehicles through the “Timetable Explorer” option.
Google Maps is installed by default on most Android devices. If you don’t have the app yet, you can download it for free (also available for iOS) or use the web version.
This app provides information about public transportation routes in Rome and many other cities around the world. It’s based on ATAC data and can provide up-to-date information on bus and streetcar arrivals.
Moovit is ideal for planning trips on any public transport mode and is the only external tool recommended by ATAC.
It can be accessed via a browser (e.g. Chrome) without having to install the app. However, we recommend installing it anyway, as it offers a significantly better user experience.
Viaggia con ATAC
This is a tool developed by ATAC to calculate routes and provide information about stops, stations, and lines of public transport in Rome.
Unfortunately, the functionalities could be improved and therefore we wouldn’t recommend this option.
