    Hi Megan,

    The Vatican is located off the 'Cipro' or 'Ottaviano' stops of Line A (the Orange Line) on the Rome Metro. From the Termini station (the main station in Rome), the Cipro stop would be 7 stops away on Line A and the Ottaviano stop would be 6 stops away on Line A. The Cipro stop is labeled as 'Cipro-Musei Vaticani', and the Ottaviano stop is labeled as 'Ottaviano-San Pietro-Musie Vaticani'.

    The Colosseum is located off the 'Colosseo' stop, only 2 stops from the Termini station on Line B (the Blue Line) of the Rome Metro. There are actually great views of the Colosseum itself from right on board the Metro as you approach. You would also pay to board the Metro locally before boarding.

      Hi Sesh,

      You would purchase tickets from Civitavecchia to Rome by searching the route under 'Find Train Tickets' on the Rail Europe homepage, www.raileurope.com.

      The trains between Rome and Civitavecchia are regional trains and high-speed Frecciabianca trains.

      The port in Civitavecchia is about a 10-minute walk to the rail station.

      The Colosseum is located off the 'Colosseo' stop, only 2 stops from the Termini station on Line B (the Blue Line) of the Rome Metro. Therefore, once you arrive into Rome from Civitavecchia, you would just switch to the Metro and take it to only 2 stops to 'Colosseo'. From the Metro itself, you'll have great views of the Colosseum as you approach.
