I want to go out this Friday night in Rome.
Are there any areas which are just too dangerous to go to at night.
If so, which subway stops are they at?

I'm sure I'm NOT an expert on Rome (I've only been there for 10 days this past July-August) but every night depending on when I was finished with my sight-seeing, I'd take long walks (usually between 11 PM - 1 AM) and a couple of my treks lasted at least 4 hours and I'd get back to my hostel @ 4-5 AM. How late do you plan on being out? I'm sure construction is still ongoing in Line A (Temporary closing time @ 9:30PM) while Line B closes at the normal time (11:30PM). You'll probably be taking a bus back to your hostel unless you enjoy walking like I do! Anyways, I've been to metro/bus stops as far as Garbatella (Line B) and Cipro (Line A) in the dead of night/early morning and can tell you that I never once felt unsafe...well, the area past the Pyramide stop started getting a bit sketchy, but it wasn't too bad. Chances are that if you're going out in Rome, most of the places will be well within the city center, much closer to Termini than the stops I mentioned and these I found pretty safe. Personally, if I were to chose the most dangerous stop, it'd be Termini just because all of the bums and "unsafe" looking people lurking around.

Thanks Nantes:)

I will be out most of the night. I think the place I am going to will be open until at least 6AM.
My flight lands at 8PM. With some luck I hope I will get to where I want to go before the metro lines close.

Now I know exactly where I am going.
Does anyone know the streets around Piazza Fiume?
Are they safe?
