Overview
Let the sights of Rome unfold before you on an open-top, double-decker, hop-on hop-off bus. Climb aboard to admire top Rome attractions including the Vatican City, Colosseum and Trevi Fountain on this comprehensive tour. Enjoy 360-degree views from the open deck and hop on and off as you wish at any of the eight stops. Choose 1 Day, 24, 48 or 72 hours of sightseeing, and if you opt for a 48-hour ticket, upgrade to include entrance to Rome’s showpieces such as Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and Colosseum.

Download now Sightseeing Experience APP: an easy and practical way to orient yourself, move, visit and discover the city.

Inside the APP you find a free walking tour of the center available in 5 languages and an interactive map that shows you the position of the buses in real time, the waiting time at each stop and your position so you can easily reach the nearest stop.
Highlights
  • 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.

The tour is good to cover Rome in a short time, it covers many of the main spots but the drop-offs for some of them are a bit far.

Very disappointed with this service. Have used many of these in different cities but this one fell well short. Quite a walk to any of the main attractions from the stops and commentary was very poor. They don’t make it very interesting at all.

Very poor, buses did not arrive on time, stop locations nowhere near the attractions. Waited at the collosseum bus stop for 43 minutes for bus to come. When it did come the assistant on the bus said do you want your money back we have this all the time. Not really bothered.

These buses come along rarely, while you watch several of the other companies buses come along and pull up. Often full even in low season, you can get turned away. Expect people to barge past you to get on in desperation!

Total waste of time and money bus stops are no where near the sites of interest, also stopped at 5pm. The best way to get round Rome is go to a local metro station and get a roma ticket either 24 or 48 hour ticket, you can use it on metro or local bus or trams, much better value
