Welcoming you to FAO

FAO believes that everyone can play a part in ending hunger. That's why we open our doors to the public to show you how.

Visit us to learn how FAO is working with governments, civil society, the private sector and other strategic stakeholders to achieve Zero Hunger, improve nutrition, drive economic and social progress and ensure the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources.

Discover also how you can make an impact by simply changing day to day habits at home, at work, while shopping and by speaking up. Getting to zero will require active collaboration between governments, international organizations, the private sector, academia, farmers, civil society and the public. In fact change starts with you.

Walk through the room and halls where world leaders have discussed food issues and made groundbreaking decisions for global food security.

Find out about our programmes across the world, and meet some of the world's greatest experts who make FAO the leading UN agency for tackling hunger through knowledge generation and policy support.


The FAO Headquarters is located on Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, in front of the Circo Massimo archeological area and can be reached by car, bus, tram and metro line B (metro stop: Circo Massimo).

We recommend using public transport as FAO does not offer parking facilities to the public.
