What You Can Expect
Board your open-air boat at either Castel Sant’Angelo, Isola Tiberina (Tiber Island), Ponte Sisto or Ponte Cavour. Listen to the recorded audio commentary as you sit back, relax and cruise along the Tiber River, admiring breathtaking views and passing under several incredible bridges as you go.
With your 24-hour ticket, hop off to sightsee at your own pace. Perhaps disembark at Isola Tiberina to see the Colosseum, where emperors used to host games to entertain the public. Usually starting with comedy acts and exotic animal displays, the games ended with gladiator fights to the death.
Hop back on the boat and cruise to Castel Sant’Angelo. Originally commissioned as a mausoleum, Castel Sant’Angelo now serves as a museum and is only a stone’s throw away from St Peter’s Church and the Vatican City.
The full-loop duration of the cruise lasts about one hour, and boats arrive every 30 minutes at both piers.
Hop-On Hop-Off River and Bus
Upgrade to combine your Tiber River cruise with a 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus ticket. Travel quickly and easily between Rome’s most popular sights and enjoy spectacular views of the city from the open-air, top deck of the bus.
Board your bus from any of the eight routed stops, hopping off and on at your leisure. See the Itinerary for a full list of stops. Perhaps, hop off at the famous Trevi Fountain and toss a coin into the crystal clear waters to ensure a return trip to the Eternal City. Be sure to stand with your back to the fountain and toss the coin over your left shoulder with your right hand. One coin means you’ll return to Rome, two means you’ll return and fall in love, and three means that you’ll return, find love and marry.
The full loop lasts around 1.5 hours, and buses arrive every 15 minutes at each stop.

My friend and I had a wonderful time on the river hop on and off cruise. Over the 24 hours we were able to do a lot of sight seeing from the river, as well as rest our tired feet from walking! Would recommend this lovely way of seeing Rome - and getting a sun tan too!
Excellent trip trip had entire boat to ourselves with a good commentary.
Nice boat ride. Lots of steps down to the river, every time you get on and off. Not for those with mobility issues.
Very nice experience. we enjoy it.
Very little signage to direct us to the area where we could board the boat - took us 2 hours of looking and being wrongly directed. Please improve your systems and include a map of how to get to the boat.
Once on board, it was a very relaxing afternoon but between only a few of the bridges - I would not do this tour again.
This was a short river cruise. Not a lot to see but brick walls along the banks. This is not wonderful like tours on the Seine or the Thame. I would put this low on a tour list of things to do in Rome.
state of riverbank is disappointimg i am sure more could be done by the authorities to make it more attractive this cruise is only worth doing if it is combined with the bus tour which was really good
The tour was very short, not very much impressive.
River cruise was relaxing but not very informative. Hop on Hop off bus ride was better.
Can not see much but relaxing ride.
