I understand that Via delle Botteghe Oscure is better for the tram than Via del Plebiscito, but it's sad that the current terminus of the line will disappear, since it's closer to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona...

I thought the idea was to reach Termini via Via Nazionale instead of using Via Cavour. The old proposal made more sense, since Via Cavour already has metro service, while Via Nazionale doesn't.
You're right. Where now there's the terminus, there will be a large footpath,in front of the theatre. The stop will be a few meters before turning right in Via Florida, as you said.

Actually, a quite old proposal, called TVA (Termini - Vaticano - Aurelia), dating back to 1997 (for the Jubilee of 2000) was to build a tram between Termini and via Aurelia (behind the Vatican) going through via Nazionale, via del Plebiscito, corso Vittorio Emanuele, and Piazza di Porta Cavalleggeri.
But then the project stopped, because they haven't got enough time (and probably enough money). In fact they were building the P.A.S.A. tunnel (Principe Amedeo Savoia Aosta).

TVA is also something that in the "good old days" was there. It has been dismantled in the forties.

The TVA will run between Cornelia and Termini, along Via Gregorio VII, to Cornelia (Giureconsulti), and a branch for Piazza Risorgimento.



An architect said to me that one of the problem of TVA is "Via Gregorio VII", where for building for TVA tram track, on the existing busway, They will have to cut all the big pines along the street

That would be awesome. If they decided to build the TVA, it would be the backbone of Rome's tram system, with a huge increase of interoperability among the different lines that have its terminus in Risorgimento, Termini and Argentina.

Moreover, it could be a way of saving money, since metro line C could run as an express line between Venezia and Risorgimento, providing an easy transfer to the tram in these two stations for those going to the historic centre. Therefore, it wouldn't be necessary to build intermediate metro stations in that delicate area, where they are going to be really expensive due to its depth and the archeological findings.

Is there any real proposal to do it?

No, not any more. ATAC (the transport society, like TFL in London, MTA in NY, BVG in Berlin) published what is called "Rapporto Ferrotranviario", in which you can find lines and projects to be done in the future, before thinking to new ones.

TVA isn't there. Although line D, C and extension of A and B are there.

There is a part of the TVA tramway in the "Rapporto ferrotranviario", from Cornelia to "Lungotevere". After that, the hypothesis is to get through the Lungotevere (instead of "Corso Vittorio Emanuele") up to "Via Arenula", and link it with the existing tram track for Largo Argentina

That looks a little bit better than the brand new line 5 in Milano.

It does, though if there is a city where tunnelling would be slow, it would have to be Rome (don't know if archaeology has been the issue in this case).

I saw that The Vatican has its own train station - can you actually catch a train there, or is it just for Vatican official to use (similar to the platform at one Tokyo station just for the Imperial family to use)?

Does the pope get his own train too, to go along with his funny car? :P

The new Italian Government has decided to finance another track of "Linea C": from Colosseum-Imperial Forum to Venezia Square. But the financing will be provided only if the track Pantano-Centocelle would open by October 2013. In this track there are some works about security field to finish. Are they going to make it?

This is the article explaines the clause

See you

Conditions to obtain the financing from the Italian Government are actually changed. The sum of 300 millions, in order to finance the track Colosseum-Venezia, will be offered if:

- The definitive project of Venezia square station will be subjected to CIPE by 30 October 2013
- The pre-exercise of the track Pantano-Centocelle will start by 15 December 2013

Upon its completion/opening, Line C of the Rome Metro will be served by 30 AnsaldoBreda driverless metro convoys.

Actually it seems they finally secured Venezia station realization.
Last January article related.

http://www.metroxroma.it/2014/01/lin...-per-la-metro/

Related to the ongoing building sites, here are some new pics on Metro C stations, May update.

http://www.romametropolitane.it/arti...245&CodArt=246

These pics are only showing the stations between Mirti and Fori Imperiali, still in construction. The others are completed and will be opened in early autumn. So they say.

Below every pic, you can find the links for watching other pics dated on April.

Fori Imperiali - Colosseo

Amba Aradam - Ipponio

http://www.metrocspa.it/upload/15420...28gardenie.pdf

Mirti

http://www.metrocspa.it/upload/1542014121611mirti.pdf

I remind some "deadlines" on the metro C completion.

Stations from Pantano to Centocelle are completed and will open to the passengers by next autumn 2014.
Stations from Mirti to Lodi will be completed by 20 August 2014 and opened to the passengers by next autumn 2014.
Station San Giovanni will be completed by 31st December 2015 and opened in early 2016.
Stations Amba Aradam and Fori Imperiali will be completed by 22nd September 2020 and opened (I guess) by the end of the same year.
On Venezia station no one knows yet. Hopefully will be finished in 2021 or 2022.
No news related to the further stations. We romans hope that will be realized for 2025 Jubilee but those are really difficult desires to be fulfilled...
