Location and how to get there
Piazza Venezia isn’t far from the stop Colosseo on metro line B. Once the exit of the metro has been reached, you will only need to follow Via dei Fori Imperiali for 950 meters (12 minutes on foot), and you’ll reach Piazza Venezia, with the Vittoriano on your left.
A single ticket (B.I.T.) costs € 1.50, but the metro also offers tickets for 24, 48, or 72 hours or even for a week.
As for the tram, Piazza Venezia has its own stop, by the same name, on line 8. Once you arrive at the stop, you’ll find yourself in front of Piazza San Marco, to the left of Piazza Venezia.
Rome’s tram network also uses the 1.50 euro single-ride BIT tickets, as well as other available passes.
This is definitely the means of transportation that offers the most options. The buses in Rome allow you to reach Piazza Venezia with several lines. The ones here indicated stop right in front or to the side of the square.

The city buses use the same tickets that are also valid for the metro, trams, and suburban trains. The cost of a single bus ticket is therefore always €1.50 (BIT) and is valid for all other means of public transportation.
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 Piazza Navona 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. For instance, there is a cab stand along the east side of the square.
Walking is undoubtedly the option that ensures you enjoy the monumental beauty of the Eternal City to the fullest. Fortunately, Piazza Venezia is close to many other interesting sites.
You could, for example, consider using the square as a transition point from a tour of Ancient Rome to one of Renaissance and Baroque Rome. The first tour would feature monuments and locations such as the Palatine Hill, the Arch of Constantine, the Colosseum, the Imperial and Roman Fora, while the second one would include Venice Palace, Piazza Navona, the Bridge and Sant’Angelo Castle, the Spanish Steps, and the Trevi Fountain.
