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.
  • Hop-on hop-off bus tour saves valuable time by combining Rome's top sights 
  • Choice of 24- or 48-hour ticket is flexible and accommodates different budgets
  • Recorded narration on board gives in-depth history of Rome
  • Choose to upgrade with skip-the-line admission tickets to top attractions 
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.

Impossible to do a tour around the city with this bus. Bus only stops every 45min at stops, in reality even longer. App also doesn't work. Indicative waiting times fluctuate to 90min... It is faster to walk from one attraction to the other.

Hop on hop off is not possible if the buses only comes every hour or more. Buses were old and dirty as well so all in all I would say avoid. There were 6 of us so it cost 120 euros to go one stop.

Good value for money. I got a 72h ticket but probably would have been ok getting a 48h one as after 2 days you have seen most places. Still good value though. Some places aren't too far apart walking but on bus makes it feel longer. They are very keen on you putting a mask on .
