Trastevere to Vatican Museums by Bus??

Hi all,

this is a late query as I am currently staying in Trasevere and need to get to the Vatican Museums for 10:30 Monday (Sept 26). Is there a bus from Trastevere that will get us close?? It looks like maybe the 23 but I'm finding I'm challenged reading the bus routes. Any help appreciated!!

Whereabouts in Trastevere are you? You would have to take the 23 on the other side of the river as Lungotevere on the Trastevere side of the river is one way going south. If you are anywhere near Ponte Garibaldi, you could walk (or take the No 8 tram) to Largo Argentina and pick up the 492 outside the Fetrinelli bookshop.

When we stayed in Trastvere we crossed the river using Ponte palatinio and took bus 280, and then walked the rest of the way

Thanks for the quick replies. We are closest to Ponte Sisto. We know we can walk and may do that but were trying to save our walking for the museums and the afternoon. No matter what we are loving Rome and enjoying glorious summer-like weather.

If you're closest to the Ponte Sisto, take the No. 23. There's a stop on the Lungotevere just before Ponte Sisto/Via dei Pettinari.
