New metro line finally opens in Rome

After years of costly and controversial construction work, Rome’s third metro line has been inaugurated – but not without a hitch.

A technical problem brought the first train on the new driverless C line to a halt on Sunday morning, forcing passengers to disembark and wait more than 10 minutes for another train to take them to their destination.

Luckily for Rome’s Mayor Ignazio Marino, all was well by the time he took a ride later in the day.
