Subject: Re: Rome subways
There's not a zone system in Rome. You pay the ticket when you enter the subway, and it lasts 75 minutes. In that time you can have 1 subway ride and as many buses you want. Other chances are daily or weekly passes, but I don't think they would be good for you. Being in the center, most of the attraction are at walking distance, so you won't travel that much via metro! Do you know what the cost of a ticket would be from the central train station where trains arrive from Florence to the Spanish steps area? L. 1500 wich is more or less 75 cents.

About safety, everything is fine. Just take the minimum care of your stuff and you won't be pickpocketed!
