How Do I Buy Tickets For the Pantheon
At the time of writing, there are only two ways to purchase tickets. You can turn up and stand in line, where both contactless and cash payments are accepted. But the easiest option is to purchase tickets directly from the Ministry of Cultures Museum portal. The website can easily be translated into English and is easy to follow. You’ll be asked to choose a date and time slot. You’ll also be asked to provide an email so they can send your e-ticket to you.
I suggest the second option, buy your tickets in advance by using this portal: Musei Italiani.

- By Bus: The Buses n° 30, 40, 62, 64, 81, 87, and 492: get off at the Largo di Torre Argentina stop, which is about 500 yards from the Pantheon.
- By Metro: The nearest Metro station Barberini on the Metro A line, is located around 1000 yards from the Pantheon.
