Overview

Cover more of Rome in less time on a hop-on hop-off bus tour, a great way for independent travelers to see the city. Tailor your sightseeing by hopping off at any stop that interests you, including highlights such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Circus Maximus, and Vatican City. While on board the bus, listen to commentary about the sights you pass for crucial context. Choose between the Classic, Premium, or Deluxe ticket to suit your budget and schedule.

What to Expect

Make your way to any one of the stops, voucher in hand, to step on board the bus. When booking, you'll choose a 24- or 48-hour Classic, Premium, or Deluxe ticket, which allows for any vacation itinerary or budget. This comprehensive tour of Rome lets you cover all of the highlights in much less time than a self-guided exploration or combination of other tours would.

Each ticket option includes four guided walking tours, and the Deluxe ticket includes a route past the Catacombs of San Sebastiano. Tours run between 9am and 5pm, and you can start and end at any stop of your choosing. Plan to allow at least 1.5 hours for the full tour, plus more time if you plan on hopping off and exploring individual sights.

On board the bus, slip on the headphones to listen to audio commentary about the stops. Learn about Rome's ancient history and its evolution into a modern, thriving city. The bus' eight stops are centered around highlights such as Vatican City, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Roman forum, the Pantheon, and the Colosseum.

Adequate, but Infrequent Buses

Kids (4 and 8) enjoyed sitting on top of the double decker, and there were always good seats available. Recorded information was mediocre - a lot of time playing music while we passed by historical buildings without comment. All of the hop-on hop-off buses follow...More

Bus quits running at 7. There are better choices than this bus. They said it runs every 20 minutes but we waited for at least 35 minutes. We watched other hop on buses at our stop come and go many times before ours showed up....More
