Overview
See Rome’s highlights in an efficient, flexible way on a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Choose a 24- or 48-hour ticket to suit your schedule, and then step aboard at one of the eight stops and enjoy unobstructed views from the open-top upper deck. Sights include the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, and Vatican City, among others. Upgrade to include admission ticktes to attractions such as the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum.
What to Expect
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.

Terrible service and wait time

Avoid the red “sight seeing Roma” hop on hop off bus! It is a bit cheaper but their run time is the worst, wait time was 40 minutes! We were waiting at the Vatican stop for the red bus while the “Big Bus” and every...More

Good to help get you oriented to this congested and confusung city

We purchased the two-day pass directly from the vendor at the termini station stop. There are appx 8 stops on the trip, stopping near most of Rome's famous sites. You will still have to walk a lot, so just remember that. This was our 7th...More

Just OK. The operators seemed disorganized.

We wanted to do a hop-on/hop-off tour of Rome. We found these guys online and bought a voucher. It turned out to be a reseller based in India. The reseller did not send us any maps or instructions on where to go or how to...More
