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 Venezia 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 Piazza Venezia.
Walking is undoubtedly the option that ensures you enjoy the monumental beauty of the Eternal City to the fullest. Fortunately, the Vittoriano in Piazza Venezia is close to many other interesting sites.
You could, for example, consider taking a walk to visit the various monuments belonging to the Renaissance-Baroque-Rococo period in Rome. Some of the stops could be the Vittoriano, Venice Palace, Piazza Navona, Sant Angelo’s Bridge and Castle, the Spanish Steps, and the Trevi Fountain.
