Location and how to get there
Due to its excellent location in the city center, it’s possible to reach the Pantheon by various means of public transportation or by foot.
The Pantheon doesn’t have its own metro stop. The nearest station is “Barberini” on line A, which is about a 15-minute walk from this fascinating monument.
When you leave this station, you should follow Via del Tritone and then continue along Via in Arcione. This way, you will also pass by the Trevi Fountain.
The cost of a single ticket (BIT) to travel on the metro is €1.50, but it’s also possible to purchase 24, 48 or 72 hour passes, among others.
The Piazza Venezia stop on line 8 is about 700 meters from the Pantheon. From there, it’s possible to reach this monument walking along Via Aracoeli to the north in about 10 minutes.
Rome’s trams use the same tickets and passes as the metro and buses. A single ticket costs €1.50 and there are also passes available.
Public buses are undoubtedly the means of transportation that offer the most options in Rome.
It’s possible to reach the Pantheon with several lines. Lines 30, 70, 81, 87 and 628 stop at Rinascimento, 350 meters west of the Pantheon. On the other hand, lines 62, 83, 85, 160, 492 and 628 stop at Corso/Minghietti, also 350 meters away, but to the east of the Pantheon (a 4-minute walk).

Cabs are obviously the most comfortable option, but they are also the most expensive and are not guaranteed to be the fastest way to get to the Pantheon due to the heavy traffic in the central area of Rome.
However, this means of transport is a good option if you feel like chatting with a cab driver, who can tell you a few secrets of the city or entertain you with his typical Roman humor.
The best way to get a cab in Rome is to book it by phone, mobile apps or simply by going to a cab stand.
Walking is undoubtedly the option that ensures you enjoy the monumental beauty of the Eternal City to the fullest. Being close to many of Rome’s other monuments, the Pantheon can easily form part of a stroll through the city center.
Thus, you can take the opportunity to visit Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, Hadrian’s Temple and many other architectural gems, such as the Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola, in the same day.
