Rome from Florence
I'll be heading to Rome in a few days from Florence via train, and we're going into Tiburtina train station instead of the main one. Does anyone know where I can purchase the 3-day metro/bus pass from there?
I know machines sell them and you must have correct change. Do these machines accept bills, or only coins? I've looked at several youtube "how to ride the metro in Rome" videos, and it looks like only coins can be used.
Is there a tobacco shop near the Tib? All the information I find is about the main train station.

I am sure you'll find a "tabacco" shop or newsagent in the station itself where you can get change to use the machines, or even buy them from the newsagent. Ask about "metro pass", if they don't understand maybe they'll just change your bills so you can get them on the machine.
