Location and how to get there
Being one of the most famous monuments of the capital, and moreover being located in the central area of the city, the Fountain can be reached by various means of public transportation , by taxi or even by foot.
The Trevi Fountain doesn’t have its own stop, so the closest one is “Barberini”, on line A. Once you exit the metro, the fountain will be 600 meters away from you (an 8-minute walk). You’ll just have to follow Via del Tritone for about 500 meters and then turn left onto Via dei Poli.
The cost of a single ticket (BIT) is €1.50, but the metro also offers 24h, 48h, 72h, or weekly tickets.
The closest tram station to the Fountain is Piazza Venezia, on line 8. Once you get to the stop, the Fountain will be 900 meters away (an 11-minute walk). To get there just take Via del Corso and then turn right into Via delle Muratte. At this point, the monument will be only 200 meters away from you.
BIT tickets for €1.50 (for a single journey) can be used for Rome’s tram network, as well as other available public transportation options.
This is the mode of transportation that offers the most options, although the speed of bus service is often diminished by downtown traffic.
Lines 52, 53, 62, 63, 71, 83, 85, 117, 160, 492 all stop at Tritone/Fontana Di Trevi, about 200 m from the fountain. Lines 51 and 119 stop at Largo Chigi, 300 m from the Fountain.

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 the Trevi Fountain 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.
Definitely the most recommended option to enjoy the monumental beauty of the Eternal City to the fullest. Being in close proximity to many other places of interest, the Trevi Fountain can easily be included in a walk through the central area of Rome.
For example, you could follow a route passing Rome’s most popular fountains: the Fontana delle Naiadi near the train station, the Fontana del Tritone in Barberini, the corner of the Quattro Fontane, the Trevi Fountain, and finish at the three fountains of Piazza Navona.
