TRAC 2016 is just two months away. To help you plan your trip, Matthew Mandich has put together a list of useful links for travel and sightseeing in Rome.

Getting around: The closest metro stop for the RAC/TRAC conference held at the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’ is Policlincio on the Metro B (blue line). The next closest stop is Castro Pretorio, again, on the Metro B. For a map detailing all metros, trains, and trams in the City click here: http://www.atac.roma.it/files/doc.asp?r=4

 

Alternatively, several bus lines and trams also pass by the conference venue and a map can be found here (bus lines in black, tram lines in green): http://www.atac.roma.it/files/doc.asp?r=3
