Great Transport Links
The historic Porta Pia is one of the gates of Rome and the last of the works of Michelangelo. Famous also as the place where the Italian unification army breached the walls on 20th September 1870, Porta Pia is also adjacent to Viale Regina Margherita with its fantastic unique architecture was once the home of Queen Margherita. Guests can catch a variety of buses and trams from here to take them to the wonderful park of Villa Borghese with its fountains, boating lake, art gallery and statuary, or even visit the art masterpieces at Piazza del Popolo.
There is also a tram-line that runs along Viale Regina Margherita that takes guests to the Vatican to visit the awe-inspiring Basilica of St Peter, the overwhelming Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. We recommend a guided tour from our useful links page to help you make sense of it all.
Finally of course, we are also just a short walk away from an underground Line B metro station. This also gives guests direct links to the Coliseum, the Imperial Roman Forum and the huge Basilica of St Paul. This line will also take guests to Termini Station which has direct links to the airport and the rest of Rome’s public transport network meaning guests have easy and quick access to all of the Eternal City’s main tourist attractions.
