Opening hours of other attractions

Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain opens at all time.  It’s a public fountain.  It’s much more quiet and peaceful if you visit in early morning.  You may even see the cleaning crew cleaning up the fountain and pick up all the coins at the bottom of it.

The Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

The Roman Forum opens every day from 8:30 a.m. with the last admission time being one hour before the closing time. In summer, it closes at 7:15 p.m.. As day light gets less towards winter, the closing time gets earlier and earlier – from 19:00, 18:30, 17:30, 17:00 to 16:30 in winter.  It also closed on 1 Jan,  1 May and Christmas day.


Same as the Roman Forum.

Entrance Fees to the Pantheon

There is no charge to go in at all times.  It is free.  Unless you prefer a guided tour in which case there is a fee per person.  (See details of guided tour here.)

At the end of 2017 it was announced that a small entrance fee would in future be charged for entry to the Pantheon.  This would be the first time in the entire history of the building that any fee or ticket would be required to enter it.

No dates or amounts were mentioned, but verbally the minister said “a few euros”.  As of June 2018 the introduction of the fee is planned for September.  

The funds collected would be used to help support the upkeep of the building.

Note that any websites offering to sell “Pantheon Tickets” at the moment are not accurate as no decisions about fees or proceudre have been confirmed.
