How to Reach St. Peter’s Basilica

Visit to the Vatican City will be a waste if you do not visit the St. Peter’s Basilica. The 2000-year-old Basilica is a symbol of the traditional and classical background of the Vatican City. There are primarily three ways as to how to reach St. Peter's Basilica; Buses, Metro, and by walking. So, explore the popular modes and enjoy your trip.

There are three most popular bus lines, which can get you to the Vatican. These are Bus 64, Bus 60 and Bus 40. Bus 64 halts at the Basilica and south of the piazza and from any of these bus stops; the Basilica is just a short walk away. You can even confirm the same bus from the bus driver or the local passengers.


The most convenient and the easiest mode of transportation; especially, if you are going to the Basilica. Travelers find it very easy to understand primarily because there are only two lines for almost 20 years now.
