  1. Hi, We are leaving our hotel which is enroute of the marathon on April 7th. Our hotel is telling us that it’s ok for us to get a taxi in the area up until 8am to go to Termini rail station. I am little apprehensive. Hope some one can help. Our train is at 9:20

    • Hi Uzma,
      if you don’t stay right at the Colosseum 8am is ok. The Marathon starts around 8:30 and first moves south to Via Cristoforo Colombo and then to San Paolo but also there it will become difficult only after 8:30.

      • We need to leave our hotel at 16:30h to get to the airport Fiumiciono by car.
        It’s located Corso Vittorio Emanuele/Via del Gesú. Does the taxi have access to this area at this time?

      • Hi Alex,
        probably at that time they will still be cleaning some streets but the taxi will be able to arrive.

    • Hi John,
      you better go to the Trastevere railway station. You can take there trains to Termini and to Fiumicino.
      If you want to walk to Termini, you have to cross two times the marathon track. It depends, when you want to go. Maybe the first runners are at ponte Garibaldi around 9:30 and from 10:30 on it will become difficult to cross the area between Torre Argentina and Piazza Venezia. I suggest to pass at Ponte Garibaldi and then walk trough the Ghetto (via dei Falegnami, via Margana) to Piazza Venezia and to cross somewhere there. You may then continue to Largo Magnanapoli and via Panisperna. This is a nice walk but not with luggage as there are cobblestones.
