How to get around in Castelli Romani

Transportation options in Castelli Romani

Though a rental car will let you visit the most places in the shortest amount of time, you can get around the Alban Hills by public transportation.

Remember when perusing the options that buses may look faster than the trains, but only because they are leaving from the Anagnina station at the end of Metro line A, which is itself a 20-minute ride from Roma Termini.
