As your vacation in Rome is approaching, you cannot help but think, “Do I really have to choose among overcrowded metros and buses or expensive taxi fares?”
Not this Christmas! Uber, the popular service that has shattered the transportation industry, has just made the centre of Rome more accessible!
Chances are you have already heard of this app-based service, but you might not know of Uber’s Christmas promotion yet. For two weeks, Uber will set up the Roman line U, with cars and vans ready to take you to 8 key locations around Rome, chosen through an online contest by Romans themselves. The map below shows the stops of the “Linea U”:
More precisely, the stops are:
The experiment started on the 10th of December and will last till the Christmas Eve. Uber’s promotion is not only innovative for the route of Line U, but also because of its cost. A car ride is only 5 euro and the fee can be shared by those using the service! So if you are traveling to Rome with friends or your significant other you may spend less than a bus fair.
How does it work? It is easy!
Now if you are wondering how to reach Doctors in Italy – the English-speaking medical center, through the Uber U line, follow these directions.
There is no stop at the Spanish Steps, where our medical center is located, but it is quite easy to reach us. If you’re in a hurry, you can hop off at the Termini station and take the metro line A for 3 stops until you reach Piazza di Spagna.
If, instead, you are in the mood for a walk in the most beautiful area of the city center, you can get off at Sant’Andrea della Valle and walk for about 15 minutes, passing by the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain and Montecitorio, little beauties like Piazza delle Coppelle and Piazza Sant’Ignazio, or just walk straight along Via del Corso for some window shopping on your way.
What are you waiting for? The city centre is now just a few steps away!
