Safety & Security
Thanks to the widespread presence of police forces and law-enforcement agencies operating on the territory, Rome is a safe place to walk through. The squares and the streets of the city centre are always populated both by locals and by visitors who enjoy the city at anytime of the day and the evening.
Following the recent history – on the matter of local terrorism above all – Italy has developed a very efficient precautionary security system.
In recent years the number of international visitors in Rome has grown continuously and the 2 international airports of the city – Fiumicino and Ciampino – just last year received together about 47 million passengers, who enjoyed Rome connections without problems. The number of visitors who access the city through the modern and safe railway network – connecting the capital with all national destinations – is constantly increasing.
The proximity to the Vatican City State makes the capital city even more safeguarded, thanks to the successfull collaboration between local policy and the Vatican “Gendarmeria” corps and security units.
