It took only 12 years to complete but Rome’s Metro C line and its San Giovanni metro stop has finally opened, or will be at least by the end of 2017!

On hand at the press conference on March 30th, 2017 was Rome’s new mayor, Virginia Raggi, and the director of the Colosseum, Rossella Rea. Excavation for the new metro line, which will also go past the Colosseum, went down as far as 20 meters. Archeologists came across a wealth of ancient Roman artefacts which are now finally on display in this new metro stop.
