With your prepaid ticket in hand, make your way to one of the eight stops on the bus route. Choose between a 24-hour or 48-hour ticket when booking, according to your interests, schedule, and budget. You can also choose to add admission tickets to the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum to your hop-on hop-off ticket, which saves time spent waiting in ticketing lines.

Step on board the bus and choose a seat in the covered portion of the bus or the open deck up top. Listen to the audio commentary with historical and cultural information about each sight as you pass. If you stay on board the entire time, the loop takes between 1.5 and 2 hours; otherwise, you can choose to get off at any of the stops and explore further on your own.

See the Colosseum where gory gladiatorial battles once took place, and have your camera ready for Piazza Venezia, home to the Vittorio Emanuele II Monument. Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain for luck, or stretch your legs on a walk through Vatican City.

Good for an overview of the city

We took this tour on our first afternoon in Rome so that we had an overview of the city and it's sights to aid planning for the following days. Hopping on and off the bus is the best way to explore this beautiful city and...More

A good way to see the city

I usually get a hop on hop off bus in any new city and Rome was no exception. I pre-bought the tickets which worked out OK but is not necessary. The tickets are sold all around Rome and it's easy to find the various stops....More

Leave the hotel by turning right. Go out to the main street and run turn left. Go up one block to the plaza. Cross the street and go down about 2 blocks. All of the hop ones have signs there.
