How to Reach Vatican City

The Vatican City does not have a transport system of its own, but the very reliable transport network of Rome City efficiently serves it.

Going to the Vatican by bus

The city of Rome has a very convenient bus transport system, making it very easy to answer the question, ‘how to reach spots for Vatican City Tour.’ These buses go to all around the city, making this transport mode the most reliable. A number of buses go to the Vatican.

Bus 62 connects Repubblica, Piazza Venezia, Piazza Spagna, and Argentina.

Bus number 40 is an express one and it makes very few stops. It connects with Termini Station Piazza Venezia and Argentina.

Bus 64 connects Termini station, Piazza Venezia, and Argentina.

Bus 81 passes through the middle of the Vatican City, connecting the city from Colosseum, Piazza Colonna and Circo Massimo Piazza Venezia.

When you leave from any of the bus stops, you only have to go on foot for a short distance to the Basilica and Vatican Museums.

Travel by taxi

The major taxis are found in Piazza de Risorgimento, Piazza Cavour and St Peter's Square. A taxi will cost you between 15 and 16 Euros depending on time, the day of the week and luggage you have.

Travel by metro

Line A's metro Cipro and Ottaviano both go to the Vatican and they are 10 minutes from each other. Cipro is close to the museum while Ottaviano is close to St. Peter's square.

Travel by tram

The most commendable tram is 8 which will take you to the neighborhood of Trastevere. From there you can go on foot along River Tiber up to the Vatican.

Reaching Vatican City by Foot

In case you decide you do not want to take the above means, you can walk from Rome to the Vatican. It will take you about 30 minutes to get there.

You can go from different directions. If you are coming from the Tiber, you will go west to one of the many bridges to cross the river. There is a pedestrian-only bridge and it goes directly to Sant'Angelo Bridge. You can also use the one from Corso Emmanuel II.

    Travel Masterz is a really good trip planner. It was my first time with Travel Masterz. They are very professional and methodical. I would like to thank Arpita and her team for helping me plan my Europe tour. Right from airport transfers, hotel bookings to guided tours, everything was up to the mark. The service exceeded our expectations and my family was very happy!! She was available 24*7 to address our issues and we received prompt response. I travelled to Italy and France and was very elated with all the bookings. I would recommend and would use the service of Travel Masterz for all further trips!! Kudos to them!!!

    Ajithbl's 9 days trip to Rome

    With regards to experience in vatican,i felt they could have booked a vendor who is more flexible for the guided tour as this vendor "Overrome" was not willing to respond soon to mails and also not willing to refund my money for the tour..I accept its my mistake of being late there by few minutes,but wheni checked there ,every vendor was willing to refund the money barring 8 euros..But this vendor was too stubborn...This was one bitter experience where i felt they were harsh to customers..Also "pickmytrails" werent even concerned about what i was doing next ..I expected them to show some bit of concern,but they werent bothered and not intrested to know what i had been going through..I expected "overome" vendor to refund atleast a bit of money back to my account (even though im not expecting to refund the full amount) as i had to spend some on another vendor close to 100 euros all over again..
