Public Transit 

Metro – The closest metro station Circo Massimo is on Metro B (blue line). 

Bus – There are various busses that stop right in front of FAO headquarters, such as the 118, 3BUS, 51, 628, 81, 85, and C3. For bus and metro times, check the timetable of Rome's public transit operator ATAC. 

Taxi  – Ask your taxicab to drop you off at FAO's visitor's entrance on Viale Aventino close to the corner of Viale delle Terme di Caracalla. Walk up the steps and straight towards the gate where you will see a sign indicating the visitor's entrance for a security check. 

Get to know FAO's Group Visits team! 

Meet our young and vibrant multilingual group of individuals who will show you around FAO headquarters. Our team is made up of employees and trained interns with diverse cultural and educational backgrounds who are keen to share their enthusiasm about FAO's work with others. 

Education is an important tool to inspire change and, here at FAO, we believe our group tours are a moment to connect and learn together.
