City transport

Rome has an underground network of two lines (A and B). Over ground systems of transport in the form of trams and buses link the various parts of the city and allow easy movement from one area to another.
Rome is also the centre of a train network with high speed and long route trains which arrive from, and leave for, all the cities of the continent.
Two international airports connect Rome with Europe and the rest of the world. The 'Leonardo da Vinci' airport at Fiumicino is the headquarters of the Italian national airline 'Alitalia'. The airport is 25 km from the centre of Rome and is connected by an overground and underground railway system with various areas of the city. The ticket costs about 10,00 Euros per person. It is also possible to reach Rome from the airport by shuttle bus or by taxi.
Ciampino airport largely deals with incoming and outgoing charter flights from all parts of the Continent. A shuttle bus connects the airport with the underground station of Anagnina (the last stop on line A) which takes passengers to the centre of Rome.
Because LUMSA is in the centre of the city (very close to the Basilica of St. Peter's) it can be reached very easily. Those students arriving at the central railway station of 'Roma Termini' can reach the university by taking bus number 62 or 40 express. Those who arrive at one of the two airports in Rome should take the underground line A which goes directly from Anagnina to Ottaviano (this is the final stop on this line and is very near to the university).
The cost of a normal ticket for the underground and for trams and buses is 1,50 Euro. The cost of a monthly pass ('Metrobus') which allows travel on both underground lines and all trams and buses is 35,00 Euros.
