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.

Not worth it!!

Pick a different hop on hop off tour. The other buses looked far nicer. There were only signs at some of the stops for the bus and it was never on time!!

Plenty of other sightseeing buses to use!

The staff were rude and unhelpful, and assumed that you speak their native language. (Unfortunately, I don't speak enough Italian!) As we had our luggage with us, they would not let us carry it upstairs, or have storage upstairs. The bus wasn't full, so I...More

Good overview of the city

Don't know any other way to see a city quickly. Hard to understand the taped descriptions of the 9 highlights. Often the descriptions were after we had already passed by them. Didn't think the stops were "highlights".

Good, if you can sit on the top!

We wanted to get this as a way to get around and see many sites at an affordable rate. That is the case generally for this tour. However, the crowds of people at the bus stops, many to get on the same bus, made it...More

Beware of skip-the-line Colosseum/Forum add-on option & crowded buses

This is a belated review as I've been trying to get a refund since early November, but as the Rome Hop on, Hop Off bus team, plus Isango! who we booked via in the UK have now refused, here's my belated review. On the morning...More

I saw handicap spots in lower level of the bus. Best to ask the bus driver and see if the wc can access the bus. If you can, then buy the tickets, if not choose something else like taxi. Best to go with wc when off peak... More
