The Rome Metro has just two lines, intersecting at Rome's Termini Station. A third line is still being implemented. Although limited, the Metro is by far quicker than any of the surface transports available.
Rome's buses are very comprehensive and frequent and for the most part reliable. In many ways its a victim of their own success with chronic overcrowding for most of the day on popular routes.
Most visitors to Rome will only use trains if they are arriving from another city or using the airport train, the Leonardo Express to/from Fiumicinio, the main airport. The main station is Termini Station.
Public transport in Rome is very accessible for the visitor and very good value. There is a range of ticketing options for bus and Metro which are operated seamlessly.
There is an overwhelming choice of different lines offering a classic double deck open top sightseeing bus, operating a hop-on, hop-off service to all the main sights and attractions in Rome.

Ciampino is Rome's second airport dominated by the low cost budget carrier Ryanair. There is a choice of city transfer options, but no direct train service.
Civitavechia is Rome's cruise port about an hours drive north-west of the city. Frequent train services operate between Civitavechia and Rome, with vehicle options too.
Naples airport is quite close to the city itself, just north-east of the city centre. There are good bus links that service the whole of Naples as well as the nearby regional towns like Sorrento.
The Naples ferry and cruise ship terminal are in the heart of Naples at Mollo Beverello. The airport bus starts at the ferry terminal and services both Central Station and the airport.
Naples has a complex public transport system that includes buses, metro, trams, funicular railways, normal railways and boats. Thankfully all of these have a unified ticketing system to help make using them a lot easier.
Sorrento has quite a good public tranport system combining local buses covering the immediate countryside and the Circumvesuviana train service to Pompeii and Naples as well as fast boats covering the Bay of Naples.
