Minibuses in Rome

by Firsttraveler

Where do the minibuses go in Rome? Where are the bus stops near the Pantheon? Do they go to the Vatican?

Re: Minibuses in Rome

Do you mean the ordinary buses? They aren't mini-buses, they are full-sized. (mostly: those which go to the Trastevere area are sometimes smaller). There are a number of routes, and you'll find stops near all the major attractions. Details of routes/stops/fares (and maps) here:

There are also trams and the metro. Click the 'routes and maps' link on the left of the page to get downloadable pdf maps of metro and bus routes.

Rome is very walkable, but its transport system is both excellent and cheap.

By minibuse, do you mean the 110open trambus. It is the hop-on and hop-off bus that travels around the center of Rome. Piazza Navona is the one closest to the Pantheon and yes there is a San Pietro stop. See my Rome transportation tip for infor and websites for 110openbus.

Travel Tips for Rome

VIA APPIA ANTICA
This ancient...

by SirRichard

VIA APPIA ANTICA
This ancient roman road starts here ans borders the Mediterranean to the very south of Spain (Cadiz, the roman Gades). There are still several conmemorative monuments standing, as the one of the photo.
It was one of the most important Roman Roads. Opened by Appio Claudio 312 years b.C. from Roma to Capua, was later it extended as far as Brindisi. Now we have only some stretch of original pavement and the ruins of many stomb stones and burial monuments that bordered it.

Off of Piazza Barberini

by alloquisha

Yet another reason to head to the Piazza Barberini....the area is chock-full of interesting side-streets and small vendors. A great place to feel like more of a "normal" person than a camera-slinging tourist.

Rip off taxis

by mop1010

Watch out for the rip off taxi drivers, they charge a small fortune and me and the misses got stung big time. Expecially leaving the airport and getting to the hotel. Book a transfer or do it online with an italian airport taxi firm. We paid 60 euros getting to our hotel and going back to the airport with a proper taxi firm we paid only 15. So watch yourself and make sure its legit

Great food, clean bathrooms

by deebum25 about Maccheroni

We enjoyed a cheese plate, ravioli with pumpkin flowers, amatricciani and a plate of sausages. We never thought we would finish but we ate every bite it was so good! I will say that the bathrooms are for the guests only, they are unisex and they enforce that policy strictly. I saw them turn people away who only wanted to come in and use the bathrooms. Sausages. They were just spiced and grilled perfectly.

Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emmanuele II

by Airpunk

The national monument for Vittorio Emmanuele II is the dominating building of the Piazza Venezia. It was built between 1885 and 1927 (although already opened for public in 1911) so that fascistic influences in the architecture are visible. This monument is seen with ambivalence by many Italians. On one side, it is a national monument, including the "tomb of the unknown soldier" and the "altar to the fatherland". On the other side, it was used by Mussolini for different appearences during his regime and also its architectural style is not very popular. Romans call it the "typewriter" or the "wedding cake" because of its white marble colour sticking out of the rest of the surrounding buildings. Some even say that you will enjoy the best view over Rome while standing on the monument - because you can't see the monument itself. Anyway, visit it and judge yourself. And if you have enough time, visit the museum about italian history which is incorporated in the building too.
