Romans do a fair amount of walking and they take advantage of the public bus and metro systems as much as they can. You will find that parking is near impossible unless you have a smart-car or moped. The streets are full of pedestrians and they move faster than the traffic most of the time. The public bus is quite efficient and runs every 15 minutes so be sure to take advantage of it. You can buy a bus ticket both on the buses and at small convenience stores. You should definitely look into the Roma Pass while you are traveling. It is valid for 48 hours from the time of validation on the bus and will also get you into the first two museums or archeological sites of your choice.
